If you are looking for a fun gift for someone over the holiday season and don’t want to spend a lot of money, then a DIY is the perfect option. For the holidays especially, peppermint is a good bonus in any gift because of its high popularity. Peppermint soothes the body with its cooling scent while it helps to reduce headaches and boosts energy, according to Dr. Axe. When combined with the benefits of body scrubs, which moisturize and exfoliate, states The Today Show, it makes the perfect holiday gift.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup granulated white sugar (or any sugar)
  • 1/2 cup mild-flavored oil (olive oil, coconut oil)
  • 4-8 drops peppermint essential oils ( more/less to your desired strength)
  • Red food coloring (optional)
  • Crushed candy canes (optional)

Gather all ingredients.

This DIY is a fun, inexpensive, and easy gift to make this holiday season. Everyone will appreciate the time and thought put into their gift, and you will enjoy making it.

    I suggest either using avocado oil or olive oil, for coconut oil hardens when it’s cold.
