Lots of baking going on in your house? Mine too! I love the comforting scents of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger….mmmm! So, why not make them into a body scrub and give it as a gift? I’ve already mixed this up and given two jars to some friends.
Shhh….but I also make some for myself, too, and I LOVE it! I can seriously say that my skin is glowing when I get out of the shower, and no need for lotion after using it.
Gingerbread Body Scrub:
*3/4 cup grapeseed oil
*1 cup brown sugar, packed
*1 cup white sugar OR sea salt
*2 teaspoons cinnamon
*2 teaspoons ginger
*2 teaspoons nutmeg
*Pour the grapeseed oil into a bowl. Add the sugars and spices. Mix it all together until you have a grainy sugar scrub. Spoon it into a glass jar, with a sealed lid.
*Use it in the shower 2-3 times a week. Do NOT use it after shaving if you made it with sea salt. It will kind of burn, like rubbing salt in a wound.
*Rinse it off well, and be careful because the shower can get a bit slippery.
