Homemade Christmas Gifts #8 – Cinnamon Sugar Scrub

Barely over a week until Christmas and that means we need quick but meaningful gift ideas. Earlier this year, I shared some Natural Beauty Recipes and the Cinnamon Sugar Scrub is ideal for a quick but special gift.

Cinnamon Sugar Scrub

What you will need:

  • Glass Jar
  • Ribbon
  • Wooden Scoop (optional)


  • Brown Treacle Sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Olive oil
  • Essential oil of your choice
  • Fresh Rose Petals


  1. Combine ingredients as you feel inspired (the sugar should be slightly moist and not drowning in olive oil, though).
  2. Cut up rose petals and mix them in (leave a few for the top).
  3. Put this body scrub into a nice glass jar and decorate with ribbon and a custom tag. This makes an amazing gift! (on the tag you may wish to add the following directions: To apply, massage into slightly damp skin and rinse.)

This scrub is great for the body but gentle enough to be used on the face as well!
