I just love good smelling bath and body products! I’m the type of person, that when I go into one of those “bath and body” stores, that I have to smell and try out every tester!
As a mom of little ones, as I’m sure many can relate, I look forward to my time alone when I can finally take a long shower or a long relaxing bath. Anything that smells good and helps me to relax a little, including bath bombs, sugar scrubs, scented body wash, body butters, and lotion, you name it!
Several years ago, I started making a few of my own bath and body products. I was surprised how easy some products can be made, some using items already around the house!
I decided to make this Gingerbread Body Scrub to give out to a few people this Christmas, and it turned out sooo good!
This recipe made enough for two 8 oz mason jars and 2 4 oz baby food jars. I had saved several baby food jars from when my daughter was on baby food about a year ago. I just knew they would come in handy for something at some point! If you don’t have baby food jars, you can also just use another 8 oz mason jar. I thought the baby food sized jars made cute little stocking stuffer like gifts, perfect for friends or the neighbor.
The scrub turned out so good; I had to keep one for myself! It gently exfoliates, and the coconut and jojoba oil left my skin feeling baby soft, not to mention it smells ahhh…mazing, just like Gingerbread!

I used regular printer paper for the labels because that’s what I had on hand. I think they still turned out pretty good, but they may turn out even better with sticker paper, like Avery Shipping Labels.
