Cinnamon Nutmeg Body Scrub
Dare I say it… but I might like this cinnamon nutmeg body scrub more than the face mask that inspired it.
I mostly use my trusty lemon and lavender sugar scrub, but sometimes I just want some different smells, ya know? This body scrub is great because it smells really sweet and is good for getting rid of body acne and blotchy skin. I don’t even know why anyone buys their own body scrub when recipes like this exist. Oh yeah, because they are suckers for good marketing like me. DON’T BE THAT PERSON. This shit is way better than anything you’ll find in a boutique at the rich people mall.
All I mixed together was about 1/4 cup white granulated sugar with a tablespoon of sea salt, 2 tablespoons of nutmeg, and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon. Then I poured in some grapeseed oil (my favorite) until it was moist and fluffy. Two of my favorite things. You can add more or less oil depending on your personal preference, and if you don’t like grapeseed oil (WRONG ANSWER) you can also swap it for coconut, olive, or something else.
I was worried it would make me look like I messed up an application of self-tanner, but it didn’t leave any color on my skin. I would still recommend following up with a soapy scrub-down (Dr. Bronner’s soap is my favorite) to make sure you didn’t leave any cinnamon skid marks down your back. That made me laugh. Cinnamon skid marks.
This body scrub is great to make and give out as a gift, just make sure the recipient doesn’t try to add eggs to it and make a batch of gluten-free brownies. Not that it wouldn’t work…
