Peppermint Lemonade Skin Scrub

Peppermint Lemonade Skin Scrub

Summer is pretty much long gone now but we can revisit it year-round now with this scrub that will lend you a beach-y glow and July picnic scent even in the middle of winter. With just a few inexpensive ingredients, you can have a natural skin scrub that will leave your skin silky-soft with a lovely, lingering scent. With invigorating peppermint and bracing lemon, this scrub will gently exfoliate and freshen your skin. I wouldn’t use this on the face because I’d be nervous about the essential oils being close to the eyes, but it’s great on the rest of your skin.

Peppermint Lemonade Skin Scrub

1/2 cup Fair Trade, vegan sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Zest from one lemon
5 - 8 drops lemon essential oil, optional
5  drops peppermint essential oil
1/2 teaspoon Vitamin E oil, optional

Mix all ingredients together in a sealable jar (extra points for a cute jar!)

Wet your skin and rub on the scrub in small, circular motions for a minute or so. Rinse and pat dry with a towel. Enjoy your fresh skin!
