Vanilla Spice Body Scrub

Everyone needs today’s recipe. Mother, aunt, sister, daughter. Whoever you are make this.

Make extra and give to your Mother, aunt, sister, daughter.

This homemade scrub smells great and leaves your skin smelling vanilla-ie and cinnamon-ie and sweet.

Like a cookie!

And it leaves your skin soft and smooth.

This body scrub is a great all-purpose scrub to use from your neck down to your feet. But the way I have enjoyed using it is on my hands. Since I am cooking food all day I am also washing my hands all day. And therefore my hands tend to be rather chapped and dry. This scrub helps exfoliate as well as moisten. Making my hands feel soft and smooth afterwards.

The recipe below makes a good solid cup of scrub which filled my jar nicely. However I think you could easily double or triple the recipe to giveaway. Easy and inexpensive! Love it! This would be a great gift for all the lovely ladies in your life, your kid’s teachers, Christmas presents, or baby/bridal shower party gifts.

To gift this I simply placed the scrub in a cute jar from the Dollar Store and tied on a pretty ribbon. Or you could recycle baby food jars or some sort of other glass jar. Or use a mason jar topped with a piece of pretty fabric.

After I took the pictures I decided I needed a pretty tag so I created this one. And guess what you can use it too, just click here.

Or make your own using scrapbook tags, gift tags, or printer labels.

Have fun! Get creative!
