Fall has finally come around here. We seemed to have entirely skipped fall and went right to winter for a while, but the snow has melted and it’s (somewhat) #sweaterweather around here. I’m finally feeling the autumnal bliss that is currently all over Instagram. In the spirit of fall and all things pumpkin, I’ve whipped up a yummy Vanilla Pumpkin Spice Body Polish for you. Perfect for whisking away the dry skin that has already set in and giving you all your fall cravings in one place.
What you need:

glass mason jar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil melted
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon spice (optional)
2-4 drops Young Living Clove essential oil*
2-4 drops Young Living Christmas Spirit essential oil*
2-4 drops Young Living Orange essential oil*

1. Melt coconut oil in saucepan.
2. Mix dry ingredients.
3. Stir in coconut oil, vanilla extract, essential oils.
4. Store in glass jar.
5. Use as needed and rinse well after use. (Take caution. May be slippery.)

*Clove and Christmas Spirit may be considered “hot oils,” meaning there can be some skin sensitivity with the essential oil. Perform a patch test on your skin with the body polish. Add more coconut oil if sensitivity occurs. Additionally, orange essential oil may cause skin sensitivity to UV light. Use caution and apply to covered areas.

For compliance reasons, I chose Young Living Christmas Spirit essential oil because it has cinnamon in it. If you want more of a cinnamon smell, check your US virtual office, or add cinnamon spice.

This is seriously the yummiest body polish ever. The brown sugar is a thicker and coarser grain and will provide more of an exfoliation. For a deeper polish, switch to raw cane sugar. If you want to get even more autumnal, add some cooled, steeped chai tea to the mix.

Steam distilled from dried clove buds in Madasgascar, clove is an important ingredient in Young Living’s ThievesĀ® oil blend. Clove oil has a sweet, spicy fragrance that is stimulating and revitalizing.

Christmas Spirit is a sweet, spicy blend of orange, cinnamon, and spruce essential oils that tap into the happiness, joy, and security associated with the holiday season. With Christmas Spirit on hand, simply open a bottle and start diffusing!

For aromatic use. Diffuse or sprinkle on logs in the fireplace, on Christmas trees, on cedar chips for dresser drawers, or on potpourri. Use all year round.

Cold pressed from the fresh fruit peel of oranges grown in the United States, orange’s sweet, citrus fragrance induces relaxation and encourages positive emotions.
