Cinnamon and Vanilla Sugar Scrub

Sugar scrub feels divine on your skin. The best part for me is that smooth after effect and the intense moisture it injects into the skin. This sugar scrub has a Christmas smell with a strong hit of cinnamon and vanilla to remind you of that special time of year. It makes a fabulous gift for someone you love, an indulgent gift for yourself and, best of all, it is incredibly simple to make.

When you use this on your skin, your skin will truly feel divine. It’s a favourite in our house. Your skin will be so soft, smooth and moisturised with a hint of cinnamon fragrance. It’s just a heavenly treat. You don’t need to use a lot on your skin. You just need to scrub. Just be careful on the shower floor because it has the potential to become a little slippery with all the oils. But I just love this!


  • 1 cup tightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp almond oil
