The busy holiday season is the perfect time for pampering. This year, treat your friends and family to a simple (and inexpensive!) sugar scrub, made with two of our most popular essential oils.



  1. 1 cup sugar (white or brown sugar, organic)
  2. 1/2 cup carrier oil (olive oil and coconut oil work well; we used olive oil)
  3. 30 drops Ellia Orange Essential Oil and 30 drops Ellia Peppermint Essential Oil


  1. Gather ingredients.
  2. Mix sugar and carrier oil in a glass bowl with whisk. (Be sure to use glass, as plastic absorbs essential oils). Note: You may need to add more sugar if the mixture appears runny.
  3. Add essential oils and blend well with whisk.
  4. Place sugar scrub in an airtight glass container(s).
  5. Personalize container(s) for gift giving with tag, ribbon, and a small candy cane or sprig of evergreen.
