Sugar scrubs help remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells, leaving your skin softer and smoother, without causing pain. A sugar scrub bar is easier to manage than the traditional sugar scrubs. They are also good for those with sensitive skin and those that have found salt scrubs scratchy or uncomfortable. These peppermint sugar scrub bars smell great and are great for hydrating the skin as well.
Peppermint Sugar Scrub Bars
These peppermint sugar scrub bars not only smell amazing, but they are great for hydrating and refreshing the skin as well.
They are easy to make with only four or so ingredients, depending if you add the optional colouring ingredient.
After melting the soap base, mix through the coconut oil. Then gently add in the essential oils.
If using a colouring agent, slowly mix through until you get a uniform colour of your choice.
Mix through the sugar and stir until well combined.
Pour into your moulds and allow to dry for a couple of hours before removing.
