This Peppermint Scrub is an easy to make at home Christmas gift that your child can help make and have fun doing it. Salt scrubs are awesome for dry skin and exfoliating. There are many recipes for oil and salt ratio but the best way to do it is to simply add the oil slowly enough that you get the consistency you want.

What you will need to make the Peppermint Scrub:
Kosher Salt
Vegetable Oil
Peppermint Oil (or extract – which contains alcohol so it can be drying, but oil would be ideal)
A clean glass jar (you can recycle one),
some material – ribbons etc. for decorating the jar.

Start by pouring the oil in a little at a time. Mix it up then add more until you are at the consistency you like.

Add your peppermint oil, for a large jar add 1/2 a tablespoon. If you are using essential oil, start small it’s very potent! This step should be done by an adult!

Scoop into your jar.

Add some fabric and ribbon and you are done!
