Gingerbread – it’s a smell that brings back memories. Did your mom or grandma make these for you as a child? It smells like the holidays, which are fast approaching. More than that, it’s a nostalgic scent. Thoughts of family and friends gathering, a feast on the table, and gingerbread cookies as dessert. Skin care products and food scents go hand in hand. It’s a comforting smell, and it smells absolutely delicious! While you can’t eat it, gingerbread sugar scrub is sure to bring back the memories, and exfoliate your skin. It’s a scent achieved through use of natural essential oils. Essential oils each have their own benefits, and the ones in this recipe are no exception! Let’s take a look at how to make this invigorating gingerbread sugar scrub:

What you will need:

  • Small glass or plastic jars (mason jars work great!) with lids
  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 5-7 drops of each essential oil – Nutmeg, Vanilla, Ginger, and Cinnamon

How-to:

  1. In a bowl, combine your sugars and virgin coconut oil.
  2. Using a hand mixer or Kitchen Aid, mix well.
  3. Add in your essential oils.
  4. Mix well one final time.
  5. Store in the container of your choice, and keep away from heat and moisture.

To use this gingerbread sugar scrub, scoop a small amount to use while in the bath or shower. Make sure the water is warm, so that the sugar can dissolve properly. Rub it on your skin gently in a circular motion, wherever you need exfoliation. Simply wash away when you’re done. The sugar gently exfoliates, while this particular essential oil blend invigorates your skin and mind! The cinnamon helps with alertness, and the ginger reduces inflammation. It smells just like Grandma’s gingerbread cookies!
