Better than Bath & Body

We are all familiar with Bath and Body Work’s signature Warm Vanilla Sugar scent that most of their products come in.  No matter what you get at that store, there is no going wrong with that one.   Though this is true, nothing can beat real vanilla sugar.  It is pretty difficult to mess up a sugar scrub , but if you cannot seem to get the proportions right, here is a good recipe.

Warm Vanilla Sugar Scrub

1/2 cup melted Coconut Oil

Two tablespoons Olive Oil

1 cup regular sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

Teaspoon of vanilla extract

Optional: vanilla pod seeds


In a big bowl, add all of your ingredients with the exception of the coconut oil.  Make sure to split the first layer of the vanilla pod in half, careful not to completely cut it in half, using a chef’s knife.  Then scrape the seeds using the edge of the knife, out of the pod, and add it to the bowl of sugar.  If it is not melted already, pop the measured out oil into the microwave for 30-60 seconds, or until completely liquid.  Add the oil to the bowl of sugar and mix everything thoroughly with a wooden spoon.  Remember all of the ingredients can be adjusted to your preferences.  If the mixture is too dry, add more oil and vice versa.
