Christmas Starbucks-Inspired Sugar Scrubs!


In the fall, I shared Sugar Scrubs inspired by drinks from Starbucks. It was so popular, I've decided to recreate a version for Christmas. While I've made them all fancy for display purposes (complete with the infamous Red Cup), they would still make a perfect gift, especially a last minute one. Enjoy!


Peppermint Mocha Scrub
1 c sugar
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa
1/4 c sweet almond oil 
1 tsp peppermint essential oil
Mix ingredients. Store in an air-tight container. Stir before using.
*For presentation purposes, I added whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and crushed peppermint.



Gingerbread Sugar Scrub
2 c brown sugar (light or dark)
6 tsp pumpkin pie spice
4 drops of vanilla extract
1 c sweet almond oil (or oil of choice)
Mix ingredients. Store in an air-tight container. Stir before using.
*For presentation purposes, I added whipped cream, and crushed gingerbread cookies.


Caramel Brulee Latte Scrub
1 c sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essential oil
1/2 c melted coconut oil
1 tsp powdered milk
2 drops caramel essential oil (optional)
Mix ingredients. Store in an air-tight container. Stir before using.
*For presentation purposes, I added whipped cream and drizzled caramel sauce on top. And then I drizzled caramel sauce onto a cookie sheet and allowed to harden via freezer.
