DIY Peppermint Body Scrub

Today I have teamed up with some creative blogging friends to bring you a homemade holiday gift, perfect for a teacher, friend, or loved one.  I don't know about you, but my skin really suffers from the changing of the weather.  As it gets colder out, I notice my skin feels dry and rough.  I'm always looking for a body scrub that I can use to heal and soothe my sore skin.  

I think all women enjoy pampering themselves and there is no better gift than a homemade body scrub to make them feel special this season. diy-peppermint-body-scrub-make-your-own-body-scrub-beauty-beauty-products-organic-beauty-products-bath-salts-and-scrubs-homemade-shower-scrub

This project is so simple, I may just start whipping up huge batches for all my friends and family!

Here's how I made it.

I can't imagine a nicer gift for a teacher.  I used to be a teacher and believe me, by the time you get to Christmas, you are in need of a relaxing spa day!  The kids are excited and ready to take a break and the teachers are in need of time away from the kids also!  Couple this with a small gift card for coffee and I would be in heaven.Shop this Post Logo

    I love to make DIY scrubs. I actually really like yours because I made some last year that was basically sugar, salt, and extracts. I had to hide it because my son kept trying to eat it! Your recipe would smell amazing but he wouldn’t eat it, lol. I love the epsom salt addition and now I can make body scrubs again!

  30. Amy, this looks like such a delightful gift that any teacher would love to receive! I bet it smells just like Christmas in a jar.

  31. I love the Epsom slat addition, this is the cutest gift and easy to make for a crowd, even better! Thanks so much for joining us today!

  32. Your scrub looks so pretty Amy! I love the smell of peppermint at Christmastime too! Pinning to my Christmas board 🙂

  33. I never thought of adding food coloring–I love the pop of color! Pinned to my teacher gifts board.
