Lemon Mint Sugar Scrub | Easy to make sugar scrub that's perfect for shower favors, hostess gifts or for yourself!

 If you’ve never made a sugar scrub, you are in for a treat. They are the best thing ever to restore moisture to dry hands or feet. I always use sugar scrub on my hands after gardening. It really does work miracles on abused fingers and nails. They are super simple and only take a few minutes to mix together.

The ratio for any sugar scrub is 1 cup sugar to 1/4 cup oil. I prefer coconut oil but any kind of oil can be used. Canola and olive oil are good choices but keep in mind the olive oil adds a light yellowish-green tint to the scrub. 

Here is a short video showing the steps. The detailed instructions follow.

What you need:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • One lemon
  • Peppermint essential oil (or peppermint extract)
  • Containers. I like to use mason jars but any air-tight container will work.

First thing to do is zest the lemon. Next, combine the sugar, coconut oil and the lemon zest in a large bowl. Stir it all together making sure the zest is mixed in well and all the sugar is covered with the oil. Add 15 drops of peppermint essential oil or 2 teaspoons peppermint extract. Stir it all again so the peppermint is distributed evenly.

The measurements for the lemon zest and peppermint make a mild but very pleasant-smelling scrub. If you want more of a lemon zing, add the zest of two lemons. If you want more mint, just add more oil/extract. 

If you are making the sugar scrub for yourself, package it in a container with a wide mouth so you can easily scoop it out with your fingers. If you are making it to give as a gift, small 4 oz. mason jars are perfect. This recipe makes four jars. The easiest way to transfer the scrub into the jars is to use a cookie scoop. Two scoops fills a 4 oz. jar. Before adding the lid, use the palm of your hand to push the scrub into the jar and even out the top. Embellish the jars with narrow ribbon tied in a bow. 

Hint: It's easier to tie the bows when the jar lid is off. Use the ridges (where the lid screws in) to keep the ribbon in place. Tie a bow and then add the lid.

These little jars of scrub are perfect for a bridal or baby shower favor. Use card stock to make custom tags, punch a hole and tie the tags on with the ribbon. They make a very thoughtful hostess gift and are the perfect size to drop in a Christmas stocking. The sky is the limit and one size fits all!
