The smell of fall is in the air, and my favorite fall fragrances are apple cider and pumpkin pie! In previous years I’ve shared my 10-minute tutorials for Pumpkin Spice Soap, Apple Pie Soap, and Vanilla Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub, so this year I decided to add a quick & easy Spiced Apple Cider Sugar Scrub to the repertoire! Sugar scrubs are fantastic for keeping skin moisturized and exfoliated, especially as the season’s weather turns colder and drier.

Supplies to Make Spiced Apple Cider Sugar Scrub:

For my sugar scrub, I used a blend of Sugar in the Raw turbinado sugar and dark brown sugar. I wanted my scrub to have a slightly coarser texture from the turbinado sugar, but you can use any type of sugar or combination of sugars that you prefer. The brown sugar lends its aroma to the spiced apple cider fragrance, so I recommend using at least a 50/50 blend of brown and white sugars.

Mix all of the ingredients together, and you’re ready for the smoothest, silkiest, and yummiest smelling skin around!

Note: if your coconut oil is solid (at temperatures below 76 degrees), melt it in the microwave in 15-second increments until it becomes liquid to more easily mix the scrub. It’s perfectly fine if the oil in the scrub solidifies again after the initial mixing – heat from your hands and the shower will melt it again as you use it!

  1. We made some up for a wedding shower , the them of our shower is falling in love . I would like to say it smells so good and made our hands so soft . My cousin Holly almost cried over an esty shipment that had not come in yet . Holly had ordered hand soap to give out to say thanks from our shower to yours .

  2. I was wondering would it be possible to use hot apple cider drink mix to add to sugar scrub, instead of other spices??

    1. I’ve never tried that myself, Jody, so I can’t say with certainty, but if you try it, I’d love to know how it works out for you! 🙂
