{homemade} candy cane body scrub

If you're looking for a last minute teacher, friend, or really, ANYONE gift, you've come to the right place! I've made body scrubs before, and everyone seems to love them! It's such a quick and easy thing to make at home, and you can scent it just about any way you want. Win!
 Ingredients:
2 & 1/2 cups granulated, white sugar
3/4 cup good canola oil
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
2 teaspoons peppermint oil
a few drops of red food coloring

(this amount fills 3 half pint jars--roughly 24 oz.)

I picked up this peppermint oil in the natural foods department of my grocery store, but I believe you can also get this sort of thing at some craft stores. Just make sure it's intended for skin and not diffusers/melting oils or it could be an irritant.
Mix up all the ingredients and put the scrub in a cute mason jar & that's it! 
It doesn't get any easier than that, my friends!
 If you're a peppermint fanatic like me, you'll LOVE this; plus it's also very moisturizing with the addition of coconut oil...perfect for winter skin!

Enjoy!
