  1. Melt your coconut oil so it’s liquid enough to mix.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together all of the sugars and the coconut oil. Mix well to combine.
  3. Add in the vanilla and the spices and continue to mix well.
  4. Once all the ingredients are well incorporated, scoop the scrub into a jar or jars and seal with a lid.
  5. Label the jar or jars so it’s not mistaken for something edible.
