  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup almond oil Jojoba oil, coconut oil, avoacado oil or olive oil work too.
  • 10 drops peppermint essential oil more or less
  • 1 tbsp pomegranate juice or natyural red dye


  • Combine the sugar and the oil in a bowl. Mix together until incorporated.
  • Dived the mixture in half.
  • Add a few drops of natural red food coloring (or dark pomegranate juice) into 1/2 of the mixture and mix until you have a nice pink color.
  • In a plastic globes or a jar, layer in the red and white sugar scrub until the jar is filled.


If using dyes use natural ones like Wilkins for this. 
If you want to avoid dye, try using an unsweetened full pomegranate juice.
Also, use the best essential peppermint oil you can get. 
It's also best to use organic sugar and oils, keeping it as clean as possible.
