Pumpkin Pie Sugar Scrub
Hello TCL readers! My name is Chloe Legras, I am the voice of Boxwood Avenue; a lifestyle blog for the creative. I think you all would feel right at home there, and I’d love for you to come visit me! I am completely honored to be contributing some of my ideas to Today’s Creative Life.
I don’t know about you, but fall completely snuck up on me! Today I even had to wear a jacket when I went out to feed the chickens! I live in northern California, in a town with a population of 99. My fiancé works on his family’s cattle ranch, and eventually, he will be the fifth generation to run it. We’ve lived here for about a year, and it’s been quite the adjustment going from city-girl to country-girl
We are getting married this October, and are hoping that a wave of nice weather will grace us on our wedding day. I’ve had such a fun time planning our fall wedding, and have worked hard to include as many DIY projects as I could within our wedding weekend. One of those projects happens to be this pumpkin pie sugar scrub. I am gifting these to my bridesmaids along with a few other goodies!
I don’t think anything says ‘fall’ like the scent of a pumpkin spice candle burning, so what better way to give the gift of autumn than with this easy sugar scrub? I used coconut oil as a base, but any other oil would work great, especially if you don’t love the scent of coconut, which is prevalent in coconut oil.
How to Make Pumpkin Pie Sugar Scrub
- Makes 3, 1/5 liter jars
- 1 cup coconut oil (or olive, grape seed, etc..)
- 2.5 cups coarse sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1-2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tablespoon vitamin e oil (optional – will extend shelf life)
- Step 1: In a large bowl, microwave the coconut oil for about 20 seconds (or until soft).
- Step 2: Mix remaining ingredients into the oil. Stir until thoroughly combined.
- Step 3: Scoop into glass jars, and seal.
This scrub is okay to sit out because it does not contain any water-based ingredients, therefore bacteria doesn’t stand a chance. However, if you add any water-based products into this mixture (orange peel, zest, etc…) the scrub will need to be refrigerated.
