How To Make Gingerbread Brown Sugar Scrub:
Start by mixing your sugars together. Measure out 4 oz of your pure cane sugar and 4 oz of your brown sugar. The cane sugar is a bit gritty so when you are using the scrub, you don’t have to press hard while scrubbing!
Once your sugars are mixed together, add in your sweet almond oil and shea butter. These two ingredients help the scrub stick together but they also are great moisturizers for the skin! You’ll want to add in 1 teaspoon of each.
You want your scrub consistency to be like wet sand. Add a little bit more of your sweet almond oil if it doesn’t seem wet enough for your liking.
Lastly, you’ll add in pure essential oils! Add 5 drops of Ginger, 4 drops of Nutmeg and Cinnamon and 2 drops of Orange essential oil. Transfer to your glass jar and place the top on. Voila- homemade brown sugar scrub! The mason jar also works as both a nice clear holder and an airtight container.
The gingerbread DIY brown sugar scrub smells delicious, right?! And the best part is this gingerbread scrub has all natural ingredients.

Instructions For How To Use Brown Sugar Scrub:
Winter wreaking havoc on your skin? Don’t despair! Our gingerbread brown sugar scrub is the perfect solution to combat dryness and restore your skin’s natural softness. This scrub is my winter skincare go to because it effectively removes dead skin cells, deeply hydrates, and leaves my skin glowing with a warm and inviting gingerbread scent.
Try it for yourself! Scoop out about a tablespoon at a time and massage on any rough or dry area of skin. Rinse after you have gently scrubbed (no soap needed) and then pat dry. It works great on your hands. Or rub in a circular motion onto your bare legs before you hop in the shower. Use as needed on your rough spots. I like to use it 2-3 times per week.
If you have sensitive skin, you may wish to test a small amount for your first use. Gently rub a small amount of the DIY scrub on a less visible area of skin. Rinse off with warm water and wait a few hours to make sure you have no skin irritation before you use it on a larger portion of your skin.
