For a vanilla scrub, get rid of the spices. Don't add the vanilla for a plain sugar scrub. If you want to, you can add a few drops of essential oil to a plain sugar scrub.

Although I recommend using coconut oil, if you don't have any you can use grapeseed oil.

You can use just 1 cup brown sugar for a softer scrub, or 1 cup cane sugar for a rougher scrub. I like in between; I think it is a better balance.
