DIY sugar scrubs are not only great for exfoliation, they make a wonderful homemade gift idea. This peppermint sugar scrub combines four simple ingredients for a stocking stuffer that’s perfect for the upcoming holiday season. Once you’ve made the scrub, add a bit of red and white colored ribbon and jingle bells for a perfect homemade gift.


  • 1 cup Kroger Granulated Sugar
  • ¼ cup Kroger Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1 tsp. Kroger Pure Peppermint Extract
  • 3 Kroger Starlight Mint Peppermint Candies, chopped


  1. Pour sugar into airtight container such as a mason jar.
  2. Add melted oil to the sugar gradually, stirring the mixture together after you add every little bit. If you prefer a more liquid sugar scrub, use the entire ¼ cup. If you prefer it to be more gravelly and exfoliating, use just under the ¼ cup.
  3. Add 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract and stir to combine thoroughly.
  4. Sprinkle crushed peppermint candies in and stir to mix. Top with remaining peppermint candies to finish off.
  5. Seal Mason jar with tight fitting lid until ready to use.
