Therapeutically, its antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties help fortify the skin, while its scent calms stress and anxiety. Blended together with the equally impressive properties of rosemary, the two oils will strengthen skin health, combat skin conditions, and enhance optimal bodily function.

This Mary Mint Sugar Scrub exfoliates, shedding the dead skin cells of the epidermis to renew and rejuvenate the top layers of the skin. You will notice the silky smooth difference as you apply.

Mary Mint Sugar Scrub

Ingredients

10-15 drops Rosemary Essential Oil

10 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

¼-1/3 cup Coconut Oil

1 cup Granulated White Sugar

2 Tbsps Vegetable Glycerin

(Therapeutic Grade Oils can be purchased here)

Directions

Blend the oil, sugar, and vegetable glycerin together in a large glass jar or container. Depending on your chosen oil, the sugar scrub may be drier or oilier; adjust the recipe to ensure that the sugar is just sticky enough that there isn’t a large oil layer floating on top. Once the ingredients are well combined, add in the essential oils gradually until you’ve reached your desired scent.

To use, apply a small amount all over the body, scrubbing in to exfoliate, then rinse with warm water.

Notes

Peppermint oil can be strong. If you have sensitive skin, test before use.
