• Gingerbread Sugar Scrub

    Cetaphil Gentle Skin cleanser and moisturizing cream-b101-gingerbread-scrub.gif 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.

      This looks like a great gift , do you think I can use Coconut oil instead of Almond oil??

      I also question as if you could use coconut oil. Where would you find enough almond oil to make a lot of gifts?
