It has been so cold these past few days in the valley that all I wanna do is just lay in bed when the alarm goes off. I need to go shopping for some sweaters and winter coats; my clothes are made for temps in the 70’s not 40’s. I should be happy it’s not snowing but I have no clue what that’s like! Since we are in the month of December, I thought I would have made a scrub with mint in it. I just have not been in the mood for mint at all. This year I have been in love with spices. Ginger and cinnamon have been in my top two. Gingersnap cookie scrub reminds me of ginger snaps and the scent is amazing. I even wanted to bake some ginger snaps after using this scrub. Most of my scrubs I like to give away but I am going to hold on to this one because it smells too good to pass up.
Ginger Snap Cookie Scrub Recipe:
2 cups sugar
1.5 cups oil (I used olive)
1 tbsp. cinnamon
½ tbsp. ginger
¼ cup molasses
Recipe Directions: In a bowl add sugar and spices; mix until all the spices are mixed in with the sugar. Slowly add molasses and oil to the mixture. You want to mix until the mixture becomes thick; if you don’t like a thick mixture add more oil. Place in airtight container and give away as gifts or keep for yourself.
