Make this simple and easy Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Scrub recipe. Smells amazing and leaves your skin smooth and soft. Free recipe and printable label.
You guys know I love me a good sugar scrub. I love to play around with some of the different DoTerra Essential Oils I have and make sugar scrubs that smell delicious but also provide the benefits of the various oils.
I personally love the scent of Cinnamon AND the scent of Vanilla. They remind me of the holidays and winter time. So I decided to make a Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Scrub…and let me tell you…this one smells so good! I think it is now my favorite so far.
HOW TO MAKE SUGAR SCRUB
Isn’t she pretty to look at too? I love the texture of this one. This sugar scrub is a little bit different than my other ones because I added some Raw Cane Sugar. This sugar has a larger granule and I love the feeling and the exfoliation it along with the smaller granules of the white sugar. You will need the following materials to make this scrub recipe.
- Coconut Oil or Almond Oil (Amazon)
- Raw Cane Sugar (Amazon)
- Granulated White Sugar
- Cinnamon Essential Oil
- Cinnamon (optional)
Simply mix all the sugars and the vanilla and the essential oils. Then gradually add the oil base mixing while pouring. Add the oil until you are happy with the texture and consistency of the scrub. I like mine a little on the non-oily side. But it is just a matter of preference really.

I like mine a little on the non-oily side. But it is just a matter of preference really.
HOW TO USE SUGAR SCRUB
To use, simply gather a small amount in your fingertips or with a small spoon. Rub together in your hands and scrub your skin with it. Rinse off with warm water. This will leave your skin feeling so silky soft and smelling like cinnamon and vanilla.

So so cute! Where do you get the cute bottles?!
What kind of coconut oil do you suggest getting!? I can’t wait to make this!!
Carrie Perrins says
This looks really easy and fun!
What a cute idea for a easy Christmas gift.
Such a lovely idea. I’m going to feature this one on my company blog
Giulia Casadio says
I found this blog like 3 minutes ago and I already LOVE IT!
This sugar scrub will be the perfect party favor I’ve been looking for!
How long can it be stored?
Best news ever! :) Hope you continue to follow along and enjoy what you see here! It should last up to 3 months if you use good quality essential oils and store in air tight container!

I can almost smell it form here! Pinned!
Thanks Kristen. For some reason your comments keep getting put in the spam. I will keep pulling them out! xo
I also have trouble finding nice bottles and the coconut oil I used started to condense right after so it looks al white and stuck to the bottom of the jar ,any suggestions ?
Laura Buchanan says
This looks so good. One question: When you use coconut oil, do you melt it first? (that might be a dumb question)
Yes! That is not a dumb question. It will be best to melt it just a bit. Pop it in the microwave for just a few seconds.
Could you use cinnamon extract in place of cinnamon oil?
You can. But it will not last as long. Only a couple of weeks. It also does not have as great of benefits that the oils will give you. but they will work in a pinch.
do you need to use the cinnomin oil or can you substute it with something?
Love yur scrub dude
Made this tonight and gave it a try myself – it is incredible! My skin is so soft! Thanks for the idea!
I am so glad to hear that. Thank you so much for coming back here and sharing that with me! I love to hear from those who are making and using the ideas I am sharing here.
First off, thanks sooooo much for all these scrub recipes….I’m making a few of them for Christmas gifts for friends. My question is, I picked up cinnamon leaf essential oil from our natural store. It doesn’t smell much like cinnamon. Although, I’m going to make a small batch first and see how it smells. Any experience with cinnamon leaf? Thanks!
Never heard of it! I would test it out first too! Good luck. Hope you can find something that works for you!
A word of caution…my skin reacted to the cinnamon oil. I ended up with big red splotches all over my legs and arms with some on my face because I touched my face after scrubbing my extremities. Almost like burns but no pain. I love the combo of coarse and fine sugar wit coconut oil but beware…the cinnamon oil can be hard for your skin. It did not hurt but it itched a bit. I just put lotion on and it went away. I threw my first batch out. You may want to test a small area with the cinnamon oil you plan to use before continuing. And I would not give these away unless you know they will not have a reaction.
I made this scrub today and tried it in the shower, can`t believe how soft my skin is! I used mascabo sugar and skiped the EO, still smells divine!!! thank you so much :)
So happy to hear that. Thanks for coming back here and letting me know. I love to hear from my readers who make something!
Hi there! I’m hoping to make this for baby shower favors and absolutely love the idea! The only problem is everything I’ve read says to avoid the cinnamon essential oil while pregnant, and we have at least 3 pregnant people not including myself and the mom-to-be we are showering attending! Is there any other option for cinnamon scent without using the essential oil? Thanks so much!
You could add some cinnamon in spice form. It would still smell great and would be a lot less “intense” for the pregnant ladies. I think it would still be fantastic!
LOVE all your scrubs! Just pinned. :)
Thank you so much Kristyn! xo
I’m wanting to make a pretty large bath of the scrubs in different smells by I have a question first. I have sensitive skin and as does my mother. Is the refined coconut oil still okay for sensitive skin, or should I splurge for the unrefined, extra-virgin coconut oil?
I would be more concerned about cinnamon being in there as it’s quite the skin irritant (ask how I found out).
Would it be ok to use jojoba oil? My mother in law is allergic to about every nut/seed there is on earth. How would it affect the self life? Thanks!
It should be fine!
Lisa Aguirre says
If i use coconut oil, will it mess up the scrub when it solidifues?
I am making this scrub as a shower favor. I need to make 45-50. Do you have a way to multiply the recipe so as to make larger batches? How much does one recipe make?
Thanks for your help
I downloaded the page of labels for the cinnamon scrub. Do the office stores carry labels to correspond to the scrub labels?
Not able to download your cute sugar scrub labels for the cinnamon scrub. :(
Can you help?
The Idea Room Assistant says
Just emailed it to you. Thanks.
How many jars does this recipe make? What size jars?
Do you melt the coconut oil 1st? All the coconut oils I have used are in a solid form, so just curious if you melt 1st and if so what happens when it resolidifies?
The Idea Room Assistant says
Marion-Yes melt the Coconut Oil. It will harden again once it cools down.
Samantha Izaks says
Made some today. Love it!!!! Tweaked the recipe a bit to suit me & what I had on hand. Used 2 cups of raw sugar, 1/8 cup of coconut oil (not melted), roughly 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract & BIG dashes of ground cinnamon. I used 2cups of the sugar as I started with 1 & it felt a bit to oily even though I only used 1/8cup of oil. My hand feel & smell awesome. Not too overpowering just enough hints of vanilla & cinnamon. Can’t wait to make/try some more xxxxx
The Idea Room Assistant says
Samantha- So happy you loved it!!!
