Homemade Gift, Peppermint Hand Scrub ...

I made some homemade Christmas gifts of peppermint hand scrub and wanted to share the recipe with you.
I use 1 cup of white granulated sugar
1/4 cup organic coconut oil
5 drops of peppermint essential oil

Add the coconut oil into the sugar and stir until its thoroughly mixed. Add about 5 drop of pure essential oil and mix again. (I have seen people use olive oil but it has a sour smell and can spoil, so I wouldn't recommend it.)
Store in a glass jar. To use: scoop out about a tablespoons worth and thoroughly scrub your hands, rinse off with warm water and towel dry, your hands will be so soft! Enjoy!!

What a great idea! Where do you get your coconut oil and essential oil? (Just curious!)
Thanks for linking up to Twirl & Take a Bow last week--hope you'll join us again this week!
