The BEST, EASIEST moisturizing product I now have for my skin is homemade. I love to give this away at Christmastime, too – 100% organic candy cane sugar scrub. I’ve been rid of storebought, paraben laden lotion for YEARS now & can’t imagine adding more toxins to the burden my body already bears. I made a great decision!! (And yes, it’s edible! Beware!)
As it should be, because what goes ON our body goes IN our body. Our skin drinks in what we put on it and the substances are in our blood in seconds. Do you really GET that? After years of not knowing better, I’m happy to help support my body. This DELICIOUS all natural, organic recipe puts life energy in my body. (Every batch of Young Living essential oil is actually tested to be sure it has consistent frequency –measured in megahertz!)
100% Organic Candy Cane Sugar Scrub recipe:
SUGAR SCRUB TIPS:
Pretty simple. You absolutely can make this with just the coconut oil, sugar and Young Living essential oils. The rest of the ingredients are just serious bonuses for your body. Shea butter tho… Ehrmagerd!
We avoid the microwave as much as we can because it destroys good things in foods and found it convenient to carefully, watchfully melt the coconut oil and shea butter together in a Pyrex glass measuring cup directly on the stove.
Use glass or stainless steel to mix and store your ALL of your oil products, because essential oils pull toxins out of petrochemicals, such as plastic.
This scrub is FABULOUS for days that I don’t have time to moisturize another way. After I’ve done what I need to in the shower I can rub this on, rinse off and buff with my towel and be intensely moisturized for the day! Plus, the peppermint is so energizing. The essential oils used are interchangeable–in case that’s not OBVI.
I really like this one though. It’s also great if my feet are tired and hurting. Maybe that’s all I have time for mid day is a foot scrub…what a lift! (OK, I confess–staying at the Grand Californian while ‘Disneylanding’ – monorailing back to the hotel room for a mid-day candy cane sugar scrub pick-me-up felt so indulgent (GASP) it will be a memory permanently etched onto my human soul!)
I use it in the bath too. I feel so fancy! There are so many ways to love a sugar scrub. (It’s no secret that they’re yummy, right? LOL!)

Sometimes hard to find deals on these locally:
Glass jar ideas:
Check out this link for information on DIY or storebought organic vanilla. It is SOOOO easy to make I thought it was a joke. Ummm, no wonder stores are closing!!
AND we get to make it perty the way we like! These candycane stickers on a white sticker background are what I used this year. I may order these peppermint swirl stickers for next year. 🙂 Two inches is a great size to fit on top of a mason jar lid, and those little touches are what make your gifts special. Even if it’s a gift to yourself. 🙂
Speaking of, YES it makes a difference which oils you use! (Essential oils you buy in a store are not for internal consumption, and they will say so right on their label!) This scrub is just one of dozens of ways Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil made my life better. Big pharm would rather I didn’t tell you the rest, but they’re pretty well documented. I always encourage you to do your own research. Winky poo emoticon…
If you don’t have your own Young Living account, why not? It is sooo much less than you think it is! Pfft. Add up the toxin-laden lotions and candles you buy in a year and then look again. Throw in things you buy for your face and there’s your justification! NOT EVEN mentioning a ton of things I used to go to CVS for. Would it be OK if we help you earn a free starter kit?
