Is there any worry that the red food coloring would stain your face?
Melissa saysDecember 16, 2013 at 1:05 pm
I would avoid peppermint on the face. It is great for your feet & legs! If you use the scrub in the shower/bath the red should rinse right off.

There is a pure peppermint extract made by McCormick found in the baking section at Wal-Mart. Do you think this would be comparable to the Peppermint Essentials oil?
Melissa saysDecember 16, 2013 at 1:01 pm
I found a recipe that you can use 1 tbsp of peppermint extract. You may want to add a little more Coconut oil if you are not using the Peppermint oil. My daughter loved making it for her teachers!

I made this recipe and I noticed that it’s very hard in the jar I follow the recipe to a t to make it more moist what do I need to add

When using peppermint essential oil, look at the “WARNING: SKIN IRRITANT” from Hobby Lobby.
Get Peppermint essential oil at a Natural Food store.

I am curious as well. Are extracts ok in place of essential oils? As they are edible, I would like to think they would be safe for skin/body…..
Melissa saysDecember 16, 2013 at 1:06 pm
Yes they are safe and edible!

Rebekah saysDecember 5, 2016 at 10:40 pm
Do you heat the coconut first? It doesn’t seem to be as wet as others I’ve used. I even doubled the amount of coconut oil.
Kim saysDecember 6, 2016 at 6:45 pm
I heated mine a little bit. It worked better that way.
Chelsea saysJuly 20, 2018 at 1:11 pm
How long do these last?
