This weekend was the first hot one of the summer and I started scrambling for ways to keep cool without air conditioning. Little lightbulb in my head goes off...why not use a peppermint sugar scrub as an invigorating and cooling way to wake up my senses. I'll tell ya, I was so happy with "my discovery." Added bonus: your skin gets moisturized without that sweaty summer lotion feel.
3/4 cup of Sugar
6 Tablespoons of Carrier Oil (almond or jojoba oil)
10-14 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
8 oz jar
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. After mixed transfer to jar.
Instructions: Scrub over skin and rinse off.
