Who doesn't love the smell of baked goods? Sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and other spices being warmed up in the oven creating an irresistible smell. They make an amazing scent for homemade body products too- Like this delicious Snickerdoodle Sugar Scrub. This scrub exfoliates gently and leaves your skin soft, moisturized, and fragrant. I like to keep a jar of this on the shelf next to the shower and use it a couple times a week for a quick spa experience. It also makes a wonderful homemade gift in a pretty jar with a simple tag attached to identify the scent. What is your favorite body product scent?
SNICKERDOODLE SUGAR SCRUB
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup almond oil
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 ½ tsp. vanilla extract
vitamin E capsule
Combine brown and white sugars, almond oil, cinnamon, and vanilla in a bowl.
Poke hole in vitamin E capsule, or you can use 2 tsp. oil if you buy it that way and add to mixture.
Stir until everything is well combined.
Transfer to a jar with an airtight lid.
Scrub is safe to be used on body, if you do not have sensitive skin you may also enjoy it as a face scrub.
Some people have a sensitivity to cinnamon and you may find your skin pink/red after use- this will fade.
