  • In a glass mixing bowl, mix sugar and camellia oil until combined.
  • Add peppermint and rosemary essential oils and mix thoroughly with a clean utensil.
  • Transfer to a glass container or mason jar with an airtight lid.
  • Apply to clean, just-washed skin in a circular motion. Rinse off lightly in the shower or bath with water only. You don't want to remove the beneficial moisturizing properties of the camellia oil with soap or body wash, so be sure to bathe before using the scrub.


Your rosemary peppermint scrub with camellia oil will last approximately six months to a year under proper conditions. We recommend that you refrigerate your scrub in an airtight glass container (such as a wire-clamp jar) to preserve the oil's freshness.
Please avoid getting any water in the jar -- scoop the amount you will need out of the container before use, and do not bring the container into the shower. Introducing water into the scrub will allow bacteria to grow and spoil your scrub.
This scrub is easily customized -- if you find your scrub either too dry or too oily, vary the sugar to oil ratio.
Consistency is key -- use this scrub 2-3 times per week for best results.
