Gingerbread Sugar Scrub

1/4 cup white sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 to 3/4 cup coconut oil

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon allspice

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 capful vanilla essence

The first step is to mix the sugar and the oil to the consistency you want, before you add in the rest of the ingredients and give it all a quick stir. Once you have mixed them all thoroughly, it’s time to put the scrub in a beautiful nice jar. Voilà! A deliciously scented gingerbread scrub - perfect as a gift for yourself or someone you love.


Cinnamon DIY Sugar Scrub

1/4 cup white sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 to 3/4 cup coconut oil

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 capful vanilla essence

Start by mixing the sugar and the oil to the consistency you prefer – the less oil you add the more texture you will get, and vice versa. Then add the cinnamon and the vanilla, and mix it all together. Put your scrub in a nice glass jar, and your done!

 

Candy Cane Sugar Scrub

1 cup sugar

1/2 to 3/4 cup coconut oil

15 drops peppermint essential oil

1 capful red food colouring

Just like with the other scrubs, you start by mixing the sugar and the coconut oil to the consistency you want. Then you add in the peppermint essential oil, the amount depending on how minty you want it. After adding the peppermint, you need to divide the sugar mix into two separate containers. Add the red colouring to one of them, and mix thoroughly. Now you have one white scrub and one that is red. The next step is to layer the red and white mixes into your a glass jar, to get a stripey polka effect. And there you have it - a candy cane body scrub!
