Did you know that February is National Grapefruit Month? If you live anywhere that has a bunch of citrus trees, you’ll start to notice all the enormous lemons and oranges hanging on trees … except they aren’t lemons or oranges, they’re grapefruits! So today I’m sharing a grapefruit mint sugar scrub I whipped up as a birthday present and Valentine’s Day present for a couple of friends with some leftover grapefruits I had from my Fizzy Grapefruit Mojito Mocktail. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make this sugar scrub, or how amazing it is to USE a sugar scrub! Luckily this recipe makes enough sugar scrub to fill two small mason jars and half of a third so you can gift two and keep the half to use on yourself! If you’ve never used a sugar scrub before (and I hadn’t), trust me when I say go buy some grapefruit and coconut oil and whip this up in your kitchen tonight! Your skin will thank me! Ready to make your sugar scrub? You’ll need a few ingredients:
And you can swap out the mint essential oil for eucalyptus or tea tree oil or anything else you’d rather smell! You can also add in additional grapefruit oil for a stronger grapefruit smell. And then all you need to do is add a ribbon and a gift tag and you’ve got a quick homemade gift ready for giving! Do you have a sugar scrub recipe? What do you add to yours? Let me know in the comments! I’m addicted and I’m looking for new flavors!
