The ultimate sugar scrub for all year!! This scub is cooling, tingeling, soothing, and great for itchy/eczema skin! Most people associate Peppermint with Christmas..So not true! Its truly amazing all year!! Rub on over used muscles also!
This is so simple and does so many great things for your skin… I will tell you a holiday version at the end.. And pink coloring is optional since most people associate peppermint with candy canes….Not true ! A peppermint plant is a beautiful green. Thats real Peppermint!!! Note: if you do have eczema or any open skin areas, please do not scub! Sugar scrubs are not recommended for the face…But I personally think that they may be benificial as using as a mask. Just apply and let it sit for a few minutes! We do not want to move or spread any open areas!
