Candy Cane Sugar Scrub

What you’ll need:

  • White Sugar
  • Almond Oil
  • Peppermint Oil
  • Red Food Coloring
  • Jar
  • Muddler

Mix white sugar with almond oil in one bowl, and white sugar with peppermint oil and a little bit of red food coloring in another. One bowl should be white, and the other should be pink or red. Find a cute, old jar that you don’t use but is good enough to give as a gift. Starting with the white mixture, fill your jar about a quarter of the way. 

Take a muddler and flatten the bottom layer so it is straight. Next, pour in the pink/red mixture so that the jar is about halfway full. Again, flatten with the muddler. Repeat each step until your jar is full. Vary the thickness of the layers and colors of the mixtures for some different looks. To give this gift any time of the year, switch out peppermint with another flavored oil, like lavender.
