Peppermint Mocha Salt Scrub Recipe

This year, I have quite a few extra people on my Christmas list.  These aren't people that I'm close to, but I want to acknowledge them and thank them for their volunteer work this year.  I'm making several different handmade gifts for them, giving one set to each group.  I have some ladies that have been wonderful volunteering their time with a children's group through a nonprofit that I'm involved with, so I wanted to make them this peppermint mocha salt scrub recipe and give them gift cards to get the real deal at a coffee shop.

Because I love saving money, I used the new Fuel Perks Plus program at Giant Eagle that launched on 9/28/17 to save money on my gifts.

Fuel Perks Plus Program at Giant Eagle

I've been a Giant Eagle shopper for years, and I love the new Fuel Perks Plus program.  Now I get discounts on my gas, and I also earn points on my gas purchase that I can redeem for up to 20 percent off my groceries (to to $10,000 in qualifying purchases) or up to a free tank of gas (up to 30 gallons of gas in one transaction for one vehicle).

Earning points is easy.  You can earn 50 points for each 5 prescriptions, plus you earn points on your out of pocket expenses at the pharmacy just you do with groceries.  You can use your perks to save $0.10 off per gallon of gas or 2 percent off of your groceries.

Learn more about the Perks Program, read the terms and FAQs,  and get 100 bonus points by clicking here.

To use the Perks Program, you need to have a Giant Eagle Advantage Card.  If you already have an Advantage Card, you can apply for the Perk program by visiting the Customer Service desk or call 1-800-553-2324.  If you don't have an Advantage Card, sign up at Customer Service or call 1-866-620-0216.

You can view your Fuel Perks Plus on the new Giant Eagle mobile app on iOS or Android.  

I start on my Christmas gifts early, so I headed to Giant Eagle last week to fill up for the perks to redeem for the ingredients for my gifts.  

I also picked up some gift cards because I earn perks on those too.  Since I made a coffee scrub, I bought coffee gift cards for the girl to grab a cup.

Peppermint Mocha Salt Scrub Recipe

This recipe will make about two cups of salt scrub, which is two 8-ounce jars.  If you want to make more, double the recipe.


  • 1 cup ground coffee
  • 1 cup Epsom salts
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 10 drops peppermint essential oil

If your coconut oil is hard, soften it in the microwave for 10-20 seconds.  If it melts, it's still fine to use.

Combine the salts, coffee grounds, cocoa powder, coconut oil, and peppermint essential oil.  Stir well.  Spoon into a jar.
