Candy Cane Sugar Scrub

by Jessica on December 28, 2009

Just like the Brown Sugar-Cinnamon Hot Fudge Sauce, these little jars made it into some Christmas baskets, too… and were really well-received! It’s the BEST stuff for smoothing up those rough elbows & dishpan hands and it’s literally takes 5 minutes to make. Perfect for last-minute presents, party favors, Chinese gift-exchanges, you name it!

Sugar Scrub

Candy Cane Sugar Scrub

2-1/2 c sugar
2 c vegetable oil
Oil from 2 Vitamin E capsules
10-12 drops essential peppermint oil
2 (16 oz) glass containers with lid

Combine all of the ingredients in a medium bowl until well blended. Using a spatula, transfer mix into the container and secure lid. Contents will settle, mix before using. Scoop a teaspoon or two of the scrub on your hands and gently massage in circular motions onto your skin. Leave on for 3 to 4 minutes before thoroughly rinsing. The scrub will tighten on your skin.

What a great idea! I need a hostess gift for a New Years Eve party and that looks like something I could do!
Where do you find the Vit E caps?I dont need a whole jar of them, is there anything else that would work too?
Thanks so much !!

How about coconut oil or even baby oil?? I haven’t tried them in this scrub, but I’ve used coconut oil as a moisturizer before and I loved it. Thanks for stopping by My Baking Heart – hope to see you around again soon!! ­čÖé

I make something similar to this in the summer. Mine is different using only sugar and olive oil. After I shave my legs I rub this stuff all over me (face, torso, legs, name it) then I rinse off and dry off. After doing this you don’t even need lotion after! (Though, I put mine on because it smells good) I can’t wait to make this variation of it. I like the idea of adding vitamin E and peppermint. I wonder if adding eucalyptus would be good too..or tea tree oil? Thanks for sharing your gift idea.
