Peppermint Lemon Sugar Scrub

In the most recent blog post, Prepare Your Skin for Spring in Time, Mia Taylor shared some great skin tips, and I’m going to follow-up with a series of my favorite DIY essential oil recipes that I’m using to get ready for flip-flops and swimsuits! My feet and legs need a little TLC before I head to the beach next week for Spring break, so I made this yummy Lemon Peppermint Sugar Scrub! I got this recipe from a friend in my essential oil chat group, but when I was making it I forgot to add the lemon essential oil (it called for 5 drops). But, I really liked how soft my skin felt after. The sugar and lemon juice gently sloughs off dry skin, the coconut oil moisturizes and the peppermint provides a mood boost. Plus, it’s a cute way to celebrate St. Patty’s Day too!
