A deliciously perfect blend of apple and cinnamon to keep you warm this winter season – smells just like apple cinnamon oatmeal! 🍎
1/2 cup granulated sugar
Heaping spoonful brown sugar
Coconut oil (amount determines consistency)
Two bags Celestial Cinnamon Apple Spice herbal tea
1 tsp almond extract
1/2-1 tsp imitation* caramel extract (1 capful)
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
Mix granulated sugar, brown sugar and coconut oil together in a bowl. Do NOT add too much coconut oil to balance out the amount of cinnamon, tea, and (possibly) oatmeal you’ll add later! Once you have your desired consistency, cut open the two bags of tea and pour them in. I used the Celestial Tea in the ingredient list, but you can use a different cinnamon apple spice tea if you’d like. Mix well. Add the almond extract, imitation caramel extract, and ground cinnamon. For the imitation caramel extract, I have a small bottle in my kitchen and just added a capful. The capful came out to be the equivalent of approximately one teaspoon. Mix until the extracts and cinnamon are even throughout the scrub. At this point, your mixture should be the beautiful, earthy brown color in the pictures. If you’d like to add oatmeal to your scrub, add it now. I didn’t add oatmeal to my recipe, but I will the next time I make it! After you have added the oatmeal, test the consistency and add more coconut oil if needed. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy by rubbing onto your skin in the shower and rinsing. Not for use on sensitive areas.

Disclaimer: As with every scrub, stop usage if your skin shows signs of irritation. If signs of irritation persist, contact your doctor. Redness (even a very bright red) is to be expected with sugar scrubs, as they are crafted with materials abrasive enough to remove a significant amount of dead skin. Our sugar scrubs are not tested by the FDA. If you have any questions or comments about our ingredients and whether or not you should use them, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Watkins Imitation Caramel Extract. I chose an imitation extract because a) it was the only caramel extract in my kitchen, and b) it will have a longer-lasting scent/flavor. You may use a natural caramel extract if desired (this may change the color of the scrub). Ingredients: propylene glycol, artificial flavor (contains alcohol), water, caramel color. Contains sulfites.
**Oatmeal is a natural ingredient that is easy on and can help soothe sensitive skin, sunburn, eczema, poison ivy, and other things that need special care. It normalizes the skin’s pH, which in turn reduces itchiness. Oatmeal also promotes hydration and protection from cracking, which are often issues in the cold weather.
