One of the joys of fall is the comforting scents it brings, like warm apple pie and pumpkin spice. Follow this recipe to create your own autumn-inspired body scrub. This homemade indulgence is perfect for unwinding after a long day.
Things You'll Need
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon apple pie spice
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- Pint size jar
Using the sugar combination and olive oil as your base, feel free to experiment with other fall "flavors" and aromas. Also, for a sweeter smell, melted coconut oil is a nice alternative to olive oil.
Step 1: Mix the Dry Ingredients Together
Combine the white and brown sugar in a bowl. You can add more or less of either depending on what color you'd like your scrub to be. After the sugars are combined, add the spices and mix.
Step 2: Add the Wet Ingredient
Add the olive oil to the scrub until you get the desired consistency.
Step 3: Transfer the Scrub to a Jar
Store the sugar scrub in an airtight container and away from water. The scrub will last for about six months as long as there is a tight lid.
