      Hi Julia. If you don’t care for or don’t have the ginger, then leave it out. The spices just give it a smell, the scrub will work just as well without.

    What size jars? I would like to use 12 oz. jars, how should I adjust recipe? Also, is the oil melted or solid (room temperature)? Thank you!!!

      Hi Keira, The recipe makes about a cup and a half of scrub, so a 12 oz jar should be close to perfect. I use solid coconut oil that is softened in the microwave so that it mixes easily.

      I would probably triple the recipe, Shanna. The recipe makes about a cup and a half. You could also do smaller portions depending on the size of your glass jars and double the recipe.

    I read this post and I kept thinking about the white frosting-covered gingerbread Biscotti I ate at work last weekend. For real I did and gawd it was the best ever! So, the visual of exfoliating my skin with that…hmmm. 🙂 Have a great day, Erin! OH btw…I saw your IG story with your Christmas tree hauling the other day…it is a big one! 🙂
