Peppermint

I love it.  Peppermint.  Peppermint mochas, peppermint bark, peppermint play dough, and recently I have fallen in love with peppermint body scrub. I had a girlfriend make me some and I look forward to every shower with it.  The peppermint smell lingers in my room after I shower and my skin feels super soft. 
So...I went on a hunt for the recipe of peppermint body scrub.  I found it and I made it.  Love, love, love.  I even made some for the kids and they love it too. 


These will make awesome gifts!!

Peppermint Body Scrub

3 cups granulated sugar
2 cups olive oil
2 TBS. baking soda
10 drops of peppermint oil

Mix together for 2 mins.  Pour into desired container.

I also tried a lemon scrub. I like it but about died when I used it tonight in the shower.  I have a cut on my finger and the lemon from the scrub almost made me cry!  The recipe I have doesn't make a lot either BUT burning sensation aside it did leave my skin feeling oh so soft.

Lemon Scrub
Recipe:
1 TBS. olive oil
1 juice from lemon
5 TBS of sea salt.

Mix olive oil and sea salt together. Then squeeze lemon into it and mix. Place into desired container.

Just some play time with peppermint glitter play dough in bathing suits today. You would never know it was December with the way these three are dressed!  Makenna's love for bathing suits are rubbing off on her brothers!


Do you like things made of peppermint extract or oil?
