Paleo Pumpkin Spice Cookies with Chai Icing

Southern California is finally beginning to feel like fall. We even had a good thunderstorm this weekend - It was perfect! Needless to say, I spent most of the weekend in my favorite leggings, lit all the pumpkin candles and baked these pumpkin spice cookies complete with chai icing.

Grain-free pumpkin spice cookies filled with AIP friendly spices and drizzled with chai icing. You read that right...paleo "icing" is a thing. Of course I had to step it up even further with chai. Give me all the chai!!

DIY Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Scrub

Lately I have been on a mission to eliminate as many toxins from my daily life as possible. After doing a little research I was appalled to find out the long list of toxic ingredients lurking in so many of my daily beauty products. From makeup to face wash, moisturizer, body wash, shampoo, nail polish...even toothpaste! I was blown away.

I love a good DIY, so I decided to make my own Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Scrub.

This scrub smells AMAZING and is perfect for the fall season! The scent will have you thinking of all things fall and pumpkin spice.

It's made with only a few ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry and is so simple to make. Coconut and almond oil sooth dry dull skin, organic cane sugar exfoliates, cinnamon and vanilla provide a warm scent, and a touch of apple cider vinegar brings your skins pH levels back into balance while preventing mold and mildew in the scrub.
