This is one of my favorite winter skin recipes! If you battle dry skin like, me you will want to make this! It’s so simple and easy and it’s a great addition to your shower routine. To keep your skin baby soft and bright it’s important to exfoliate at least once a week. You can make different versions of this recipe using smaller granule sugar for facial scrub, and working up to large granule sugar as a body or foot scrub.
I actually made the graphic for this recipe for an online FB class my sister and I did last night and as we’re about to do the class I realized that there’s NO ACTUAL PUMPKIN in my pumpkin spice sugar scrub recipe! I guess you could say I pulled a Starbucks!! Anyway, this is such a quick amazing recipe that I wanted to throw it up here on the blog as part of my series and share it with you all! I made this with my girls in like 5 minutes and they LOVED smelling all the oils and mixing the sugar and coconut oil together. Kids love cooking so much… scratch that… they like mixing. Mostly mixing!
Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub
- 3 4oz mason jars
- 1 1/4 cups of Sugar in the Raw® (or any large granule sugar)
- 1/2 cup softened coconut oil
- 2 drops Cinnamon Essential Oil
- 2 drops Clove Essential Oil
- 2 drops Nutmeg Essential Oil
- 2 drops Ginger Essential Oil
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and pour into air tight container. Sugar scrub will stay fresh for approximately 2 months. I like to make smaller batches in the 4oz jars to prevent them from going bad and just give the extras away as gifts!
The beautiful thing about this recipe is that the essential oils can be switched out for any season, making it such a sweet gift any time of year. I think this is a perfect homemade gift for the holiday’s paired with a homemade body butter, or spice flavored lip balm! Another great thing is the price! It is SO affordable to buy these ingredients and then make a ton of batches. Especially if you buy the sugar and coconut oil in bulk at Costco like I did. I’m thinking teacher gifts, girlfriends… anyone really who would enjoy some extra pampering!
Don’t wait until you need a gift to giveaway to make this recipe! Pamper yourself today with an amazing pedicure and the delicious aroma of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and ginger! I have seen plenty of people make this recipe with the actual spices, although I’m not sure on the measurements. But if you haven’t seen the amazing benefits of essential oils for yourself, I would encourage you to poke around the blog and do some research.
Happy fall y’all! How do you take care of your winter skin?
