Homemade Sugar Scrub: Pumpkin & Peppermint

I was feeling thrifty this Christmas and was looking for a low-cost way to make my friends some gifts. I went to the local dollar store and looked around to see if it would conjure up any ideas, I went down the glass aisle. I ended up finding some adorable "jam" jars and bought six or so.
My sugar scrub I use in the shower came to mind. It is so yummy smelling and makes my skin feel sooooo smooth. The jars would be perfect for some!

The Pumpkin/Peppermint combo may sound a bit crazy, but I swear it is delightful.

What You'll Need: 
  • 1/3 Cup Some kind of  no- fragrance oil (such as coconut oil , grape seed oil, almond oil) NOTE: I made a batch with olive oil and there was a strong scent of the olive oil, so using it is not the best choice)
  • 2 Cups Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup White Sugar
  • 1/2 T Sea Salt (large Grain) 
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon Pumpkin Spice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • Peppermint Essential Oil (amount depending on for desired smell 5-20 drops)
To Do: 
  • Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl
  • Slowly add oil while stirring. If it appears to be too dry, add a little more oil. Keep in ind you don't want a liquid mixture. Think: moist sand (sorry for having to use the ugly M-word)
  • Add drops of Peppermint as desired
  • Pour into containers.
  • Store for up to 2 months.

Merry Christmas!!
