Cinnamon Vanilla Bean Homemade Body 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 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 scrub is easy and only needs a couple of ingredients. It will give your skin a good exfoliating scrub and leave your it feeling smooth thanks to the oil. Let’s make it! 🙂
Homemade Body Scrub
What You Need:
- 1/2 cup Raw Sugar (regular 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 ingredients together well and place 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.
Enjoy on your skin and hopefully it will not only invigorate your skin, but lift your winter cabin fever mood as well. 🙂
Have you used a homemade body scrub before? What kind of oil do you add to yours?
