Beauty DIY: Gingerbread Sugar Scrub


It's the weekend! Tell me your plans! I can finally relax and get caught up on blog comments/visits. Leave your links below so I can stop by! Well, guess who's finished with her Christmas shopping?? This girl riiight here. Now I just have to wrap it all, aka throw into bags, and call it done. One gift that's easy to wrap and make--my Gingerbread Sugar Scrub. Enjoy!


I N G R E D I E N T S
  • 2 c brown sugar (light or dark)
  • 6 tsp pumpkin pie spice
    • or 2 tsp each of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger
    • or mix ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg essential oils
  • 4 drops of vanilla extract
  • 1 c sweet almond oil (or oil of choice)
M E T H O D
  • Mix dry ingredients.
  • Combine oils and then add to dry ingredients.
  • Mix well and store in an air-tight container.

N O T E S
  • Spices (especially cinnamon) can cause skin reactions, so be mindful. I would suggest this for feet and body only.
  • Dress up the jar, add a cute tag, and you've got a gift ready in under 5 minutes!
  • Random Facts: I'm eating gingerbread cookies as I'm typing this. And while I made the scrub. And they were store-bought.
Enjoy your weekend!
Be safe, behave, and be well!
Love,
Elle

  2. This is a great idea. Especially since this stuff is pretty expensive in the stores. I've been seeing this ELF product a lot. They had some great, inexpensive stocking stuffers at Target. I need now eye shadow. Hoping for xmas. Love you Elle, Merry Christmas.

  6. I think for me, the lazy one, it's much easier to get some coffee or sugar and scrub a bit and that's that, but i love it that you are so creative!

  12. Sounds great....just finished gingerbread cookies and now going to try this. And bonus, I just found a bio store down the street that has most of the ingredients for your DIY's so no ordering over the internet. I thank you for the ideas, my husband and bank account on the other hand, not so much..haha. Merry Christmas!!
