Watermelon Mint Sugar Scrub Recipe

I'm a Chick Fil A ambassador this year, so that means a lot of visits to Chick Fil A.  My closest one is half an hour away, but we go there a few times a month for appointments, so it makes a good reward for the kids.  They sent me some gift cards for their new watermelon mint lemonade, so I got one last week.  I like strawberry lemonade, but I wasn't sure about the mint.  I'm happy to report that it was a very tasty drink and perfect for a 90 degree Ohio summer day.  There was just enough mint to taste, but it wasn't overwhelming.  

That drink was the inspiration for this watermelon mint sugar scrub recipe.  I omitted the lemonade because I think three main fragrances would have been a little much.  You could add some lemon essential oil if you wanted, but I liked it just at watermelon mint.

What You Need


To make the scrub, just combine the sugar and oil and stir.  I used grapeseed oil because it's a light oil.  You can use any carrier oil like olive oil or even coconut oil.  Coconut oil will alter the scent unless you use refined oil, but that strips out some of the properties for your skin.  Olive oil is readily available, but it is a very oily oil, if that makes sense.  You'll want to use a soap to wash your hands after you use this, which means washing away the oil that will nourish your skin for hours after you've used the scrub.  

After you mix the sugar and oil, add food coloring if you want to until you get the desired color.  

Then add the watermelon fragrance oil and peppermint essential oil.  I would start with the lowest number of drops, stir, and then smell it.  Add more of each as needed.  Depending on your preference and the oils you use, you might not need as many drops as I recommended. 


When you are happy with the scent, put it in a glass jar with a lid.  Scoop out about 1/4 cup of the watermelon mint sugar scrub recipe to use on your body.  This is really good for your hands and feet, but don't use it on your face.  Rinse well.  I don't generally use soap after I use a scrub, but you can if your skin is really oily.
