Grapefruit and Mint Scrub

scrubI have been wanting to make this Grapefruit and Mint Sugar Scrub that I found on thekitchenmccabe.com for a while now, and May seems like the perfect month to do so. Firstly because it’s wonderful scent makes this a great way to scrub away winter and wake up to Spring/Summer! The second reason is that it makes a wonderful homemade Mother’s Day gift!

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 cup White Sugar
  • Zest of 1 Grapefruit
  • 1 Tbsp. Grapefruit Juice
  • 10 drops Peppermint Oil
  • 25 drops grapefruit Oil (I used 10 drops rose hip Oil instead) (both optional)
  • 1/4 tsp. Beet Juice (optional-for color, I didn’t use and it turned out this pretty peachy colour)
  1. Place all ingredients into a blender.
  2. Mix on a low speed to blend, then whip for 10-20 seconds till fluffy.
  3. Scrape into air tight glass jar and keep in the refrigerator. I used half sized mason jars.

Now all you have to do is grab some Oatmeal Honey Goat’s Milk Soap we made back in December’s craft club, add a fun nail polish and your mom’s favourite chocolates and you’ve got a perfect pampering Mother’s Day present!
