HOW TO MAKE A LAYERED CANDY CANE SUGAR SCRUB
This homemade body scrub is quick and easy to make, but looks festive and unique. .
Scented with vanilla and peppermint essential oil, it's the perfect winter pick-me-up.
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 Tablespoons coconut oil, melted (Amazon or Mountain Rose Herbs)
- 1/4 cup sweet almond oil (Amazon or Mountain Rose Herbs)
- 15 drops vanilla oleoresin or 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3-4 drops peppermint essential oil
- 1/2-1 teaspoon cranberry powder or beet powder for color (can also use a few drops of natural red food coloring)
Mix all ingredients except the cranberry powder (beet powder or food coloring). .
Place half of the mixture in a separate bowl. Add the cranberry powder or food coloring until you reach a pinkish red color to your liking.
Layer the pink/red and white scrub in a jar.
Cranberry powder provides a lighter pinkish tone, whereas beet powder will give you a darker shade. The powders also add some extra visual interest as they leave a few specks of darker color throughout the scrub. I get my cranberry powder and beet powder from Mountain Rose Herbs (as well as most of my other DIY supplies).
