Remember that wonderful pumpkin face mask I wrote about in October? Well, meet its mate, my pumpkin pie body scrub! It's made with actual pumpkin--in this case, powdered pumpkin I purchased from amazon.com--which means it has the same complexion nourishing ingredients like magnesium, iron, and a host of vitamins that bring back your natural glow during these colder months. The touch of pumpkin pie spices bring anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial qualities of your scrub.
It's also a great easy-to-make holiday gift for your loved ones in need of a little extra self-care this upcoming holiday season. What better way to indulge in a little TLC than to enjoy the exfoliating effects of this scrub that perfumes your bathroom with the smell of pumpkin pie?
1 cup sugar (or Epsom salts)
1/2 cup powdered pumpkin
3/4 cup coconut oil or olive oil
1/4 cup pumpkin spice (or cinnamon)
Mix all dry ingredients together first and then slowly add in oil until fully combined. Store in a mason jar. Enjoy!
