Make your own Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Scrub, the perfect recipe to warm up and refresh your hands in the cold winter months.
Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Scrub
About this time of year, my skin starts getting quite bad. A combination of the dry air and the bitter wind giving my skin grief every time I walk out the door has created some very dry and irritated skin. I have a couple of different scrub recipes that I love, like this Homemade Hand Scrub and this Sea Salt Body Scrub, but this year I wanted to make something a bit different with some yummy scents!

This little vanilla body scrub is easy and only needs a couple of ingredients. It will give your skin a good exfoliating scrub and leave it feeling smooth thanks to the oil. Let’s make it! 🙂
Homemade Body Scrub Recipe
What You Need:
- 1/2 cup Raw Sugar (regular sugar or brown sugar will work if you don’t have any raw)
- 1/2 teaspoon Vitamin E Oil (Where to Buy)
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract *See Note Below
- 1/8 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
- 1/8 cup Avocado Oil (Where to Buy)
In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients. Use Vanilla Extract if you can find it without alcohol in it (alcohol can be drying to the skin), there is a version extracted in water. If you cannot find that kind of vanilla extract, you can use a bit of vanilla bean. Just split open the bean and pull out the seeds inside. Add one bean’s paste per recipe made.
Mix all of the ingredients together well and place them in a jar or container. Use as needed, scrub gently into dry skin and rinse off with a damp washcloth. You can follow up with a good Homemade Lotion too if needed.
This cinnamon vanilla bean scrub makes a great gift too! Give it on its own or pair it with this Homemade Vanilla Lip Balm.
Enjoy this cinnamon body scrub on your skin and hopefully, it will not only invigorate your skin but lift your winter cabin fever mood as well. 🙂
