I have a Thanksgiving Treat for you to try!
Doesn't that sound AMAZING?!
This makes a great smelling scrub to use for the Thanksgiving holiday AND you could even share it with your friends and family for an early Christmas present!
What You Need:
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/3 Cup Raw Sugar
2 tsp Cinnamon
2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/3 Cup Coconut Oil
Mix Sugars together making sure to smooth out all the clumps
Add the spices and vanilla extract - mix well
Fold in coconut oil and make sure everything is mixed well
Place into a cute jar and ENJOY!
It took me a little while to get it "pumpkiny" enough for me (I kept adding spices until I reached the 2 tsp), so if you want to start out with 1/2 the amount of spices and add more until you reach your desired scent strength, go for it! In the jar, it doesn't smell as good as it does once it's on your hands. I could really smell the pumpkin spice scent after I used it. It's a "dryer" scrub, so if you want it more oily just add more oil. So easy to customize!
If you want to make this for gifts, double or triple the batch - this recipe makes enough scrub to fill (unpacked) 2 half pint size jars.
