It is finally getting cooler here in Southern California. I go to bed and wake up with a chill in the air. I was so over the heat, but give me some time and then I’m sure I’ll be complaining about the cold. The best part of the holiday season is the food, the festivity, and the scents. Cranberries, apple pie, cinnamon, turkey… yum! You can also get some of that holiday feel in your home by using Febreze Holiday Scents.
Last month I was all about gearing up for fall with the #FebrezeFall scents – this month it’s time to try out the #FebrezeHoliday scents. Apple Tart, Vanilla Latte, and Frosted Pine will absolutely set the mood for the holiday season.
Of course, the holidays mean gift giving, and I love giving homemade gifts. They save money, for sure, but they also tell the receiver that I spent time and effort creating something special for them. This year I’m trying my hand at making a coffee scrub. It combines my two favorite things: coffee and pampering.
This are the supplies you’ll need to get going:
Small jars with airtight lids
1/2 cup ground coffee
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 tbs nutmeg
1/2 tbs cinnamon
3 – 4 drops of vanilla extract
The beauty of this scrub recipe is the simplicity – simply combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and then use a fork to mix in the oil and vanilla. Transfer to the jars.
I doubled the recipe and it fit into 4 small jars with some left over for me. Make sure the mixture is moist, but not wet. You can add in a little more oil if needed.
This is so simple and takes just a few minutes to put together. Think about teachers or neighbors gifts for the holidays. For an extra treat, combine some homemade scrub with Febreze Holiday Scents into a gift basket. Fun, festive, and practical.
