I always give my Ladies-wot-Brunch favors when we get together.
It's just something I've always done.
This time I reused baby food jars and filled them with a homemade peppermint sugar scrub.
The scrub is fabulous for softening and deodorizing hands or feet.
Peppermint Sugar Scrub
1 box of Candy Canes
3/4c. Olive Oil (I think melted coconut oil, or jojoba, or even vegetable oil would be equally good)
12 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
Whiz the candy canes up in the food processor until fairly crushed.
Pour all ingredients in a big bowl and mix well.
Keep in a jar.
To use: put a spoonful in your hand and rub into skin. Rinse off and dry.
For best results, use before bedtime and put on gloves or socks after you rinse the solids away.
