Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub
Fall is here! Autumn is my favorite season. I love making my own hand and body scrubs. This week I decided to make a seasonal scrub- Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub.
I love the scent of this one! Making your own sugar scrubs is a great way to save money. Retail scrubs are so expensive. You can make a scrub for pennies on the dollar. Plus YOU control the ingredients. Homemade Sugar Scrubs make terrific gifts too.
I used a mini mason jar for this scrub. You will want to adapt the recipe based on the quantity you wish to make.
What You Need:
1/2 Cup of Brown Sugar (Light or Dark)
1/2 Cup of Raw Sugar or White Sugar
1/4 cup of Grapeseed, Olive or Coconut Oil (more or less to preference)
1-2 Teaspoons of Pumpkin Pie Spice (more or less to preference)
Dash of Vanilla extract (optional)
If you do not have Pumpkin Pie Spice on hand you can use this Pumpkin Pie Spice recipe
Combine ALL Dry ingredients in a bowl (Sugars & Spices) You will just want to smell the scrub to see if you want to add more spice.
You can see that using 2 different sugar provides 2 different textures. Raw sugar has a larger crystal than white sugar. If you don’t have raw sugar you can certainly use white sugar.
Next, add the oil. I used grapseed. You could substitute with coconut oil or olive oil.
Then add a dash of vanilla extract. This is optional. I just find that it adds a subtle warmth to the scent.
Mix the scrub until all ingredients are combined. Feel and smell the scrub to make sure you like the texture and scent.
Finally add to your jar. Add a seasonal ribbon if you want to present the scrub as a gift.

You should address any skin care concerns with a skincare professional. Since this scrub does use spices you will not want to use this scrub if you are allergic or sensitive to any of the ingredients. I always like testing the scrub on a small area of my arm first. I do not use scrubs on my face. Since I am not a skin care professional if you have any questions or concerns about using this scrub you will want to consult a professional prior to use.
