I modified TLC's 90s classic. Hope you like the fall-inspired remix.
Anyhoos...I had planned to make this yesterday as a nice Hump Day pamper yourself treat, but that didn't work out. No matter. It works just as well on a Thursday. Or any day. Pamper yourself!
I found the inspiration recipe through an ehow article and cut the quantities to account for the size of the adorable jar I found at AC Moore.
It came together in a snap and smells good enough to eat (which, technically, you could because everything in there is edible!)
Apple Pie Sugar Body Scrub
1/2 cup + 3 Tablespoons white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3-1/2 cup coconut or olive oil (I used coconut oil)
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons apple pie spice
1. Combine sugars and spices in bowl.
2. Stir in oil.
3. Transfer to jar.
OMG. How easy is that? Delightfully easy. The original recipe notes that you can use whatever combination of sugar as you want based on the color you want your scrub to be. Please note that the spices are dark, so there's only so light this can be when all is said and done. As you can see, mine is brown.
Slather this on your hands or rough patches of skin and breathe deep to enjoy the heavenly scent before rinsing away. Mmm.
In addition to the scrub, my younger daughter and I made a batch of Gruesome Green Toes. Since I featured them last year, I didn't photograph them again. If you haven't tried them yet, I suggest you do so because they are one of the number one requested Halloween recipes I make, year after year. And they're so simple to make.
Treats for everyone in the house today! How sweet!
