Pumpkin spice body scrub

Hey friends!

I'll admit, I've been a bit turned off by the amount of pumpkin spice EVERYTHING this year.  I think we've all been giggling about those hilarious "pumpkin spice has gone too far" jokes and vids.

This one is freakin fantastic.

BUT....... I do still love this festive, seasonal delight.  Hard to beat a great pumpkin bread, or latte, or cheesecake, or..... ok..... so many good things.  This will be my ONLY pumpkin spice post this year, I promise. :) (maybe.)

I tried out Kinsey's pumpkin spice body scrub this past weekend!  I followed the recipe exactly, and, well, mine ended up more like a pumpkin pie body oil mask.  Still, I kind of love it.

1/2 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 cup coconut oil
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp cloves

Melt the oil in a small pan on low.  Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl.  Add the pumpkin to the melted oil.  Slowly incorporate the oil into the dry mix, until you have a dry, sort of scrubby paste.  I just added all of it at once and created more of a dough rather than a dry scrub.  Let cool completely, and use within a few weeks.

Although mine is more of a body oil rather than a scrub, it smells delicious and makes my skin uber-soft!  I kind of love this messy, festive goodness.  Even if I do have to clean out my shower a bit after using it.

Pumpkin spice will eternally make me think of fall, which is why I still love it, but a few tastes and I'm good for the season I think. What about you guys, are you sticking around on the pumpkin spice bandwagon?  Or are you jumping off screaming for mercy?

Have a "pumpkin spice" Wednesday!  heh heh.



  1. I pinned this the other day to try after you mentioned it on Twitter! I haven't gotten to it yet, but I'm glad you tried it first. What do you think would make it more of a scrub than just an oil/mask? Less coconut oil/more brown sugar??

    1. Hey Angi! I think if you used raw sugar and just incorporated the oil/pumpkin mixture slowly until it's the right scrubby consistency that would really help.

  2. Hey it sounds great! I want to try it! I'm adding the ingredients to my grocery list. Hope you have a great day!
