This homemade body scrub smells just like fall. I hop back and forth between calling it Cinnamon-Spice body scrub and Holiday Spice body scrub!
If you have a well-stocked spice cabinet, you can whip up this sweetly spiced body scrub in a matter of minutes.
I love the ratio of spices in this recipe, but to tell you the truth, if you don't have all the spices, substitute 1-2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice for a similar scent.
Since this scrub contains cinnamon it's important to note that it may not be suitable for those with sensitive skin or for pregnant women.
This makes a delightful hostess gift or make it as a treat for yourself.
