Is there anything more luscious than whipped shea butter? The rich and creamy texture of whipped shea is dangerously close to that of buttercream frosting. It’s pretty much dessert for your skin – especially when it’s blended with exfoliating sugar and a few drops of invigorating peppermint essential oil.

This simple whipped scrub comes together in under ten minutes and is certain to amaze and delight friends and family when shared as a homemade holiday gift. Whipped peppermint sugar scrub looks gorgeous in simple mason jars or plastic cosmetic jars. Top your scrub with a sprinkle of colored sanding sugar to make it extra special.

Unrefined Shea Butter and Apricot Oil make up the base of this creamy whipped scrub. Shea’s naturally nutty aroma blends quite nicely with the fresh scent of peppermint, and provides a silky, moisturizing carrier for exfoliating white sugar. You can make this recipe your own by swapping the peppermint essential oil for another skin-safe aroma, like lavender, rose, chamomile, or sandalwood.

Did we mention that this recipe was easy to make? First, the Shea Butter is creamed in an electric mixer. That means no waiting for melted butter to cool and harden! When the butter has been sufficiently whipped, the Apricot Oil and Essential Oils are added and the whole thing is whipped again. This results in a soft, fluffy butter that mixes easily with sugar.

WHIPPED PEPPERMINT SUGAR SCRUB RECIPE

This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups (12 ounces) of scrub – enough to fill 3 4-ounce jars

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Place the Shea Butter into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Whisk on medium-high speed for about 5 minutes, or until the butter is light and fluffy.
  2. Add the Apricot Oil and peppermint essential oil and whisk for an additional 2 minutes. Stop to scrape the sides of the bowl, and mix again for another 2 minutes.
  3. Fold in sugar, taking care not to mix too vigorously. Over-mixing can cause the fluffy butter to flop.
  4. Spoon the finished scrub into jars and seal lids tightly. Unused scrub should last up to 6 months.

To Use

Massage scrub into moistened skin in a gentle circular motion. Rinse when finished, and towel dry. The scrub may cause surfaces to become slippery, so take extra care in the shower or bath.

    1. Hi Anna! It’s not greasy per se- however it will leave a nourishing layer of moisture on your skin after using it. With all body scrubs, make sure to be careful because the tub or shower can be slippery. Thanks for the question!

        1. You can use some coconut oil, but fractionated would be better than regular coconut oil. Unfortunately regular coconut oil can solidify quickly and when used in sugar scrubs, it can actually clog your drains. Fractionated coconut oil is only in liquid form and can easily be washed down the drain without any problem.

  1. So if all I want is a peppermint body butter, I just leave out the sugar, or is something else needed

    1. We have whipped body butters recipes in our blog and eBook, all you do is follow one of those recipes and use Peppermint Essential oil to scent it.

  2. What about some kind of preservative if we are giving this to a friend and don’t know if they will get water in the jar? And some kind of emulsifier so the shower doesn’t have to be cleaned afterwards? I hate cleaning my shower after using a sugar scrub bc I worry my husband will slip when he showers next!
    Thanks!!
    Also, you mentioned you could do 50/50 salt sugar? Still same if using an emulsifier and preservative?

    1. You can create a formula that includes an emulsifier and a preservative, especially of you give this out as a gift. I don’t have that formula handy, but I’m sure you can find something good on youtube. Regarding the 50/50 salt and sugar, that’s a great body scrub in my opinion, especially if you want some good exfoliation. Make sure you do not use salt scrub on your face though, it’s too abrasive.
