The spices smell wonderful!!
- Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix together. You can add more or less oil to your liking.
- Store in an air tight container. Since this recipe doesn’t contain any preservatives, it’s best if it’s used within a month or two.
Sugar Scrubs are the best way to exfoliate dry and dull skin and this one smells especially nice!
How to Use Sugar Scrubs
- Scoop a small amount of the Gingerbread Brown Sugar Scrub in your hands with a spoon.
- Scrub all over your hands or feet – or wherever you’d like a little extra softness.
- Allow to sit on your on your skin for 3-4 minutes. Enjoy this time to rest and relax.
- Rinse well and then pat dry with a soft towel.
If you’re short on time, massage the scrub all over your body and rinse during your normal shower routine.
SAFETY NOTE: Be careful while using your sugar scrubs on your feet while in the shower. The oils contained in scrubs can make your feet slippery.
How to Wrap a Sugar Scrub as a Gift
The best way to make your sugar scrub a gift or party favor is by tying a pretty ribbon or twine around the jar and attaching a tag. This Gingerbread Sugar Scrub is especially nice to give around the holidays!
How Often Should You Use a Sugar Scrub?
If your skin is healthy and firm, you can use a sugar scrub a couple times a week. However, if you have sensitive or thin skin, limit a good buffing to once a week. If you have any concerns, you can test an area of your skin before you use it on the rest of your body.
NOTE: Due to the fact they don’t have any preservatives, sugar scrubs usually keep a month or two in an airtight container.
Wow, this Gingerbread Brown Body Scrub is such a great idea! Easy, economical, and makes the best pampering present. I usually find cute jars and wrap them up with a pretty bow. Target and Michael’s often stock the perfect size jars in their dollar bins.
