Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Scrub

Inexpensive and Easy DIY Copycat! 

Chances are if you have heard of Bath & Body Works, you have heard of their signature scent Warm Vanilla Sugar. They offer a body lotion, shower gel, spray and more.  The scent is known for it's cozy feel and how it reminds people of the holidays. I always purchase their holiday gift set, but was really hoping they would start making a sugar scrub. I couldn't find one, so I just decided to make it.

The recipe took a few tries to get it to smell like the store scent, but we got it!

Here is how to make it :

Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Scrub

Makes 1 pint mason jar


2 cups light brown sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 vanilla bean, scraped

1 tablespoon almond oil (you can use coconut oil, but it has a scent and hindered our vanilla smell)

What to do

This recipe is super simple and can be whipped up literally in 5 minutes.  However, to get more vanilla scent I suggest mixing the scraped vanilla bean into the sugar and letting it sit over night.  Then continuing to make the scrub.

Mix all ingredients in a bowl.  If something happens and you accidentally pour too much oil or vanilla, just add a little more sugar to even it out.  Sugar scrub should be thick and grainy, not runny.

Store in a pint jar for up to 2 months.  Or separate into small jelly jars and give as a gift!
