Nothing says it’s the holidays quite like the scent of Peppermint! Beyond its delicious fragrance (and taste), peppermint has several benefits to both the mind and body. It is used to ease tension, mild indigestion and help combat bad breath. Used in many body products, peppermint is great for any skin type, because it contains menthol, which cools sensitive skin and smoothes out dry or oily skin.
This is the time of year where we give those around us gifts of thanks and affection. Here is a great little salt scrub for anyone on your list
Candy Cane Body Scrub
- 1 c. Epsom salt
- 1 c. Coarse sea salt
(Or substitute both salts for 2 c. Unscented Mineral Bath Salt)
- 1/3 c. Grapeseed Carrier Oil
- 6 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
- 4 drops Pomegranate juice
- 2 Mixing bowls
- Jar for packaging
- Ribbon and gift tag or label
Mix together the salts and oils in one bowl. Split the mixture into two bowls. Mix the pomegranate juice into one of the mixtures. Add one layer of mixture to the jar and pack it down tightly. Alternate the two colors to create the candy cane effect. After sealing, add ribbon and gift tag.
