Peppermint Scrubs Ingredients

Substitutions You Can Make

Feel free to substitute oils for ones you have or think that might be better for your skincare routine!

  • Coconut Oil: A deeply moisturizing oil with a faint coconut scent
  • Apricot Oil: Lightweight and readily absorbed, it nourishes without leaving a greasy feel
  • Jojoba Oil: Similar to the skin's natural sebum, it balances oil production and soothes irritation
  • Grapeseed Oil: Rich in antioxidants and fatty acids for moisturizing and protecting the skin

Salts: You can easily substitute Epsom salt, Himalayan pink salt or Dead Sea salt scrub for regular sea salt. Functionally you are looking for some kind of natural exfoliator to help get rid of the dead skin!

Scents: If you prefer a different scent you could definitely sub out lavender essential oil for a more calming effect or tea tree oil to add antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
