DIY Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Body Scrub

This is what happens when you realize you can use your camera for more than just pictures of people… I’m officially DIY obsessed. This is a super simple recipe because I’m no Martha Stewart over here. Plus, who doesn’t love easy?! It smells incredible, looks cute and makes for a perfect gift. If only it were cookie dough instead of a lump of sugar..

Side note: I went sugar crazy, you do not need all three different kinds of sugars, I just wanted all the different textures! You can use all brown sugar or any combination of your favorites!

Here’s how it’s done:

½ C – brown sugar
¼ C – turbinado raw cane sugar
¼ C – cane sugar
½ tsp – cinnamon
½ C – coconut oil
1 T – vanilla extract
5 drops – cinnamon essential oils (I used Doterra)

  1. Combine all of your dry ingredients into bowl – sugars and cinnamon
  2. Add in wet ingredients – coconut oil, vanilla extract and cinnamon essential oils
  3. Mixy mix until it’s all combined!!
  4. Scoopidy into little mason jars or jars of choice!
  5. Scrub yo self

Seriously, SO EASY! I decorated the jars with a little ribbon and a cinnamon stick to finish it off as the perfect, little gift!
