DIY Peppermint Oil Body Scrub

Hello there,
Today I wanted to share with you this awesome DIY body scrub recipe made with essential oils.
This body scrub has helped me to renew my skin by lifting the dead skin cells and polishing my skin for a nice clean finish.

Peppermint oil awakens the skin and the mind, relieving pain and sharpening mental cognition.

Used by the ancient Egyptians and Romans in candy-making, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics, there is no end to the wonders of peppermint.

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

10-15 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
10 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
1/3 cup Coconut Oil
1 cup Granulated White Sugar
2 Tbsp Vegetable Glycerin


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.


Peppermint oil can be strong. If you have sensitive skin, test before use.
Give it a try and let me know if you like it!
