Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

These cookies are my absolute favorite!! Not only are they super easy and quick to make, but they are great for almost any time of the year. I especially love them around Christmas time though. Bon Appetite!


12 Days of DIY Christmas – Day 2: Vanilla Peppermint Sugar Scrub

Who doesn’t love shower scrubs?! My mom makes this coffee one that is SO stinking’ good (stay tuned for a possible DIY post on that)!! But for today, I’m bringing you a super simple Vanilla Peppermint Sugar Scrub!


1_2 Cup Coconut Oil

  • 1 Cup of Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup of Coconut Oil
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Peppermint Essential Oil or Peppermint Extract
  • Glass Jar
  • Ribbon (Optional)
  • Sharpie (Optional)
  • Scissors (Optional)


Step 1: Mix your sugar with your coconut oil in a bowl. Mix until smooth.

Step 2: Add in 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly.

Step 3: Add in 6-10 drops of peppermint essential oil. Mix thoroughly.

Step 4: Take mixture and scoop into your glass jar.

Step 5: Close lid and here’s where you can get creative: I added a cute little christmas ribbon and wrote on the lid “Vanilla Peppermint Sugar Scrub”


And you’re done! This 5 minute DIY Christmas gift is thoughtful, quick and easy. You can probably do it with items already in your house. The only thing I had to go out and buy was the glass jar (we had large mason jars already, but I didn’t want to make THAT much sugar scrub lol). Plus, if you don’t have these scents already, it is so easily interchangeable with different essential oils.

Happy Holiday DIYing!
