1. PEPPERMINT SUGAR SCRUB
1 Cup of Sugar
1/4 Cup of Coconut Oil
5 drops of peppermint oil
Wide Mouth Ball Jar Pint Sized
Simply mix 1 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of melted coconut oil together in a large bowl, then add peppermint oil and mix well with a spoon. Once it is all mixed together, place it in a small glass jar or container.
2. SNOWBALL BATH BOMBS
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid (can use Ball Fruit-Fresh in Produce Section)
1/2 cup epsom salt
1/2 cup corn starch
4 tsp. water
10 tsp. coconut oil
10 drops peppermint oil
Using a stand mixer (or a bowl and a whisk), add all of the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl.
Add the liquid ingredients to the spray bottle and shake to mix.
Turn the mixer on low and slowly spray the liquid ingredients into the bowl. Keep spraying until your dry ingredients start to feel like nice wet sand. (The reason for the spray bottle is so that you add the liquid as slowly as possible…you don’t want to activate your ingredients until you or your friend is in their nice hot bath)
Use the 70 mm plastic ornament to mold the bath bomb.
The following day, place your snowball bath bomb into the 80 mm fillable plastic ornament (They expand a bit when they dry, so you need the larger ornament to use as your gift box).
Leave in the mold for 5 minutes, then remove the bath bomb from the mold and let dry overnight
3. VANILLA SUGAR LIP SCRUB
Sugar (white granulated sugar is softest)
Vanilla Extract to taste
Containers (These on Amazon would work great)
(There are so many variations you could do…you could use brown sugar or you could use peppermint extract if you prefer it over vanilla.)
Combine ingredients and mix well. As for the ratio of sugar to coconut oil…that is totally going to depend on the oil you use and the texture you want. I would say it is close to 1 to 1 ratio.
You want it to hold together a bit. I added 2 drops of vanilla. This will be a personal preference thing too.
Scoop your mixture into your container.
4. FIZZY PEPPERMINT BATH SALTS
3 cups epsom salts
1/2 teaspoon red or pink food coloring (optional)
5 drops peppermint oil
2 cups baking soda
1 cup citric acid (can use Ball Fruit-Fresh in Produce Section)
Pour the salts into a large and completely dry bowl. Add food coloring and peppermint oil and mix until completely combined. Add the baking soda and mix until combined. Add the citric acid and combine. Divide into airtight containers (glass is preferable).
You can use an entire cup of these salts if you’re doing a therapeutic epsom salt bath, or you can use a few tablespoons if you just want something to add to your bath.
Allow these to dry for a few hours before packing them up.
