With fall comes fresh, crisp days, chilly nights bundled up, and the delicious aromas of my favorite foods cooking, but it also means dry skin that needs a bit more pampering. One of my favorite ways to indulge and moisturize my skin is with a homemade body scrub! You get double the benefits- dead skin is whisked away, and the healthier skin that remains is moisturized and softened with oils and other natural ingredients. Mix in one of my very favorite fall scents- apple pie spice, and you have one decadent and delicious body product for yourself or to give as a gift to friends, family, teachers, neighbors, or anyone else who could use a pick-me-up! All the ingredients are probably already sitting on your pantry shelf, waiting to be mixed up into this Easy Homemade Apple Spice Body Scrub!

Do note that cinnamon can cause allergic skin reactions in some people. If you’ve never applied cinnamon directly to your skin before, you may want to test yourself by rubbing a small amount of the body scrub on the back of your hand first (just in case you do break out). If you do have a reaction to it, feel free to remake your DIY scrub without the cinnamon.
Easy Homemade Apple Spice Body Scrub
2 cups brown sugar
¼-½ cup coconut oil
2 Tbsp. apple pie spice
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. vanilla
optional- 1 tsp. vitamin E
1. Combine all ingredients well in a glass bowl, begin with a ¼ cup of coconut oil and add until you get your desired consistency- it will “melt” a little bit as it breaks down in the jar.
2. If you will not be using up your scrub within 3 -4 weeks I would advise adding vitamin E, this acts as a natural preservative and will keep it good longer. If you are gifting the scrub, definitely add it in.
3. Transfer to a small Mason jar that has a tight fitting lid to store it or to gift it.
4. After wetting your body in the shower, scrub it with a generous amount of body scrub, rinse away thoroughly, and pat dry.
