This homemade, all-natural scrub with Peppermint Essential Oil will leave your skin smooth and your senses refreshed. 

A treatment for your skin and your senses 

Doing a regular scrub is always a good idea. A scrub with Essential Oil polishes and moistures your skin and will leave both your skin and your mind refreshed and rejuvenated. 

I love this scrub in summer as well as in winter. In summer the weather can leave skin looking tired and lifeless and this homemade, all-natural DIY scrub is a refreshing way to pamper it. My skin always gets dry in winter with all the heater air, so a scrub helps me to keep my skin fresh and moisturised without any added chemicals. 

Benefits of the Peppermint Sugar Body Scrub 

  1. The fine texture of sugar exfoliates your skin without leaving a harmful residue that can clog pores. 
  2. Doing a regular scrub sheds dead skin cells and reveals healthier skin.
  3. Rubbing sugar on your skin may boost circulation and help drain your lymph nodes, which increases blood flow to the skin’s surface. 
  4. Peppermint Essential Oil is known for its cooling effect, helping to reduce stress and improve creativity and focus.
  5. The scrub doesn’t include any ingredients that you don’t know or that are harmful to your body or the environment. 

Ingredients (makes 2 portions)

80g brown sugar 

30 ml fractionated coconut oil 

12 drops Peppermint Essential Oil  


Mix the sugar, fractionated coconut oil and Peppermint Essential Oil in a bowl and stir until well combined. Use directly or put into a storage jar. 

How to use the Peppermint Sugar Scrub

I recommend doing the scrub after your normal shower. After you’re done showering as you normally do, rub the sugar scrub until you feel the sugar melt onto your skin. Then rinse off with warm water. You don’t need to put on any lotion after using the scrub. The coconut oil provides moisture and hydration to your skin. 

Best Quality Essential Oils

Make sure you use 100% pure Essential Oils. I always use dōTERRA oils, as they ensure all their oils are of the highest grade and are ethically sourced. 

The best way to get dōTERRA Essential Oils is to register as a wholesale client and get 25% off the retail price as well as other benefits. I’m happy to help you register. If you wanna know more, let’s get in touch
