I adore sugar scrubs. My pale, Irish skin takes a beating in the cold winter months so sugar scrubs are an essential part of my shower routine.
This gingerbread sugar scrub recipe is super simple and smells amazing!
I tried to come up with my own spice blend like I did for my Vanilla Pumpkin sugar scrub, but I just couldn’t come up with a mixture I loved. Instead, I bit the bullet and ended up buying this gingerbread scent, and I’m so glad I did. It smells amazing and put my spice mixing guessing game to an end.
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 9 drops Gingerbread Premium Fragrance Oil (more or less depending on personal preference)
- 1/2 cup Coconut Oil (I use this brand for cooking and sugar scrubs!)
Gingerbread Sugar Scrub Recipe
The instructions couldn’t be simpler:
- Melt the coconut oil in the microwave or on the stove.
- Add sugars and fragrance oil
- Mix and enjoy!
This super simple recipe is the perfect stocking stuffer or gift for a friend or teacher. Better yet, mix up a few different scents and give a little assortment of scented scrubs.
Of course, a great gift isn’t complete without a cute package so I also whipped up a cute little label. I printed mine on this heavy paper, and will probably laminate them before giving them as gifts just so they stay pretty. Click here to get your own copy.

I bet it smells amazing
It really does! I’m so glad I bought the oil. It smells a lot better than what I was concocting.

Being a newbie, just starting a blog myself, but is it normal to still love fellow bloggers, lol, I make this scrub myself but I’m not as daring as you and never even thought of trying other wonderful scents, now I have to step outside the box and try new things, I had to tell you thank you for sharing this, you inspired me to try different smells and besides your scrub post, I want to say I love to just stop by and see what your sharing, so thank you!
It was bloggers like yourself that inspired me to not just sell my products but to become a blogger to share my experiences and my passion for what I do, thanks Emily! Your awesome!
Thank you, Diana! What a wonderful message. It made my day! I love making these sugar scrubs. They’re so easy, and just a little fragrance can make them feel so special and festive. I’d love to hear about the different scents you try. Please come back and let me know 🙂
How many 4 oz jars will this recipe make? Trying to calculate how much peppermint oil and coconut oil to make enough for the staff at my school.
I’m so sorry, but the truth is I don’t remember. I’ll have to remake it this year and figure that out. That’s a great question.
