5 Minute French Vanilla Cappuccino Sugar Scrub

I have recently fallen in love with creating DIY salt and sugar scrubs with ingredients from the dollar store. They are quick and easy to make, but I was REALLY sold as soon as I used one of these scrubs in the shower. Now I can’t take a shower without using one of my custom scrubs, and I smell DELICIOUS!
