The Other Peppermint Pattie

My co-worker T has been one of my strongest supporters at the job.  She gets on me when I could do better and cheers me on when I’m doing what I should.

The thing is, T is a diabetic so I couldn’t give her any of the other “Love Day” treats I made last week.  So I decided to make her another kind of “Peppermint Pattie” so I could give her something just as sweet but less blood sugar affecting.  😀

I used the recipe for a basic sugar scrub then scented the mix with Dark Chocolate and Peppermint fragrance oils.  Can you say divine?  It’s great that stuff I had on hand could have been used to make this quick but awesome gift!

Peppermint Pattie Scrub 1

Basic Ingredients: 2 cups white sugar, 1/4 cup olive oil, 3/4 cup grapeseed oil, (I used a 2:1 ratio between the sugar and the oil), 5 – 6 drops each of peppermint and dark chocolate fragrance oil, Ikea container.

Peppermint Pattie Scrub 5

Ready to go!!!!

This will be awesome for her to use when she does her pedicures at home; all I need to do now, is make some for myself.  This smells so good, I’m not sure when I’ll be purchasing the commercial version of body or foot scrubs ever again.  😀

    @Dandeliondaze, @sam, @Creativelymotivated, @Robin — thank you all so very much for your kind comments.

    T wasn’t there yesterday so I had to leave it with our supervisor … guess who wants some now? 😀 She actually requested some kind of customized scent. I had to tell her that I’m not that good but I’ll find something in my stash. 😀

    A girlfriend made something similar for me and I love, love, love it. I think it is a wonderful gift that you gave your colleague.

    This looks lovely!! I’m pretty sure I have everything on hand for it as well, so I’m going to make some for myself! What a sweet friend you are.

      I try. I believe in treating the people we love well when we can. That way, there’ll be no regrets later. 😀
