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.
