Loved this, I double the spices to make the smell stronger and used grapeseed oil (just what I had) and it felt amazing on the skin. Thanks!!
Thanks Peta! Enjoy. :)

I recommend using this gingerbread scrub at least once a week for best results. Scrubbing in the shower tends to be the best for easy clean-up. You can use this on wet or dry skin.

Cannot wait to give this a go..Thank you so much for the recipe!! Can I substitute macadamia oil instead of almond oil..?
Hi Cate yes that should be fine.
Cate Douglas says
Thank you.. Made it with olive oil just in case.. but will do the next lot with macadamia! Thanks heaps for the recipe!! xx
I want to make this for a few people for Christmas. Can you please clarify the quantity that this recipe makes. Thanks.
Hi Sally, Approx 2½ cups.
I can’t find the almond oil. Where do I buy this or can I use something else?
Hi Billie, you can get almond oil from health food stores or soap making shops online. Or you can use olive oil or avocado oil instead. Enjoy! :)
This smells amazing, can't wait to use it. Not sure it will last long enough to make it under the Christmas tree!
I agree Elizabeth!
It was so quick and easy to make and was so well received by all the Childcare stuff. Takes for such a great recipe that makes me look like I'm clever, but it is all your hard work that makes me look clever.
Meant staff not stuff, maybe had one too many wine.
:D All good Diana
So glad it all went over well Diana :D
