2.5 cups white sugar
1 cup oil (I used safflower)
4 Tbsp or less of Peppermint Extract
red food coloring (if you want the stripes)
Here is what I did:
Mix the sugar, Oil, and extract in a bowl. 4 Tbsp was pretty much a WHOLE small bottle of extract. I am not sure this much was necessary, but since I cannot smell (allergies), I added a lot to be sure. I used my 3 year old as the tester...when she said it stunk, I stopped adding. BUT a week later after getting treated for my allergies, and now smelling, I think it smells great. SOOO add what you want and stop when it smells good to you....DEAL???
P.S....After a week of sitting on my counter, the stripes DID begin to run together. SOOOO if you want pretty nice looking stripes, I would not make this too far in advance. The stripes were a test run....I guess the jury is still out on them:)
I made some tags for this too. I got kind of carried away and couldn't decide what I wanted exactly so I have OPTIONS:)
To use the printable tags, just click on the picture and save it. Then import it into a word document and copy and paste it 6 times. Then add 2 columns and you should be able to print 6 to a page. I attached them with large flat glue dots. I just put them every so often around the edge and stuck it right on...worked like a charm.
One of my BFF's (you know who you are lady) is making some Vanilla Brown Sugar Scrubs, so I decided to whip us some tags for her (just in case---no pressure!!!). Here they are if anyone wants to borrow them.
