Last week I was feeling a bit dry and dull. Despite all my best efforts at keeping myself hydrated inside and out, I needed to do some exfoliating, and this Girl Guide cookie scented sugar scrub did the trick.

Two types of sugar and some salt form the scrubby base of this scrub. The do a great job of mildy exfoliating your skin and then dissolving away as they wash down the drain, leaving our lakes and rivers free of tiny plastic beads.

I’ve tied the scrubby bits together with some melted cocoa butter and some turkey red oil. Cocoa butter contributes delicious chocolatey scent, and turkey red oil self-emulsifies in water, making this scrub more tub safe. I actually used it in the shower and didn’t notice any extra slippery-ness!

A few drops of peppermint essential oil brings the whole thing together—easy peasy. Scoop the scrub into a pretty little plastic jar and you’ve got a great gift for a favourite person, or just for your legs 🙂

Peppermint & Cocoa Sugar Body Scrub

4 tbsp white sugar
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp salt
1 tbsp cocoa butter, melted
2 tbsp turkey red oil
10 drops peppermint essential oil

Use your hands to blend the sugars and salt together, and then work in the oils and essential oils. Move to a 120mL/4oz plastic jar, but don’t pack it down or you’ll have a hard time getting it out.

To use, take a small amount of the scrub in your hand and scrub down assorted appendages. Rinse off the sugar and bask in all the soft skinned glory!
