    • Gingerbread Sugar Scrub

      Soothe your dry skin with sensuous Gingerbread Sugar Scrub . . . or add it to a gift basket or spa jar for a gorgeous, useful yet inexpensive handcrafted gift.

      You'll Need:

      • 2 cups brown sugar - OR - 1 cup brown sugar AND 1 cup granulated sugar
      • 2 teaspoons cinnamon, powdered
      • 2 teaspoons ginger, powdered
      • 2 teaspoons nutmeg, powdered
      • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, powdered
      • 2 to 4 drops vanilla extract
      • 1 cup almond oil


      Combine all in a small bowl, blending well.

      How to Use a Body Scrub:


      1. Sit on the edge of a tub and moisten the area you wish to scrub.
      2. Place a tablespoon or so of the body scrub in the palm and gently work each area for approximately 1 minute. If you work too quickly you won't properly exfoliate.
      3. Be sure not to scour too hard or too long.
      4. If you want baby smooth skin, exfoliate once weekly.
      5. Body scrubs should never be used on the face.

      I have taken a 6" magnetic parts holder bowl and repurposed it as a stovetop spoon rest. It works great! It keeps the cooking utensils I'm using from making a mess on the stove.
