Fall fun, DIY pumpkin sugar scrub!

Hello all!  I know I don’t often post on a Saturday, but considering Houston is under flood warnings due to tropical storm Patricia.  

 Plus I am actually not working today (yay!!), so I have some free time.  To avoid cleaning my office I worked more on my sugar scrub that I started the other night.


  • 16 oz organic refined coconut oil
  • 4-5 cups pure cane sugar
  • 1 TBS vitamin E oil
  • 2 TBS pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 TBS cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Whip coconut oil (I used my kitchen aid stand mixer)
  2. Add in sugar, 1 cup at a time, fully whip.  (If you don’t like the consistency you can add more sugar or more oil- For a more gritty scrub, add more sugar. If you like a softer scrub use less sugar or more oil).
  3. Add in spices and vanilla
  4. Make sure all the ingredients are fully mixed together.
  5. Store in a glass or BPA free plastic container.  I am a huge fan of Mason jars!

This is perfect for hands, face and really all over the body.  And don’t worry if you eat it because it is all natural!
It makes great gifts, especially with the holidays coming up!


Let me know if you make it and what you think!  Be warned, you will smell delicious! 😉

Have a happy and healthy weekend!

    I must try this!!! I love pumpkin (ugh that makes me fall into that “Basic white girl” stigma I keep seeing everywhere, right?! BAHAHA). I also love a good scrub but honestly some just seem so harsh. I love the ingredients being things I have on hand! Thanks for sharing! xoxo, crystal

      It’s all good! I love pumpkin year round but it’s hard to find until this time of year.
      I now what you mean about harsh scrubs! Exactly why I started making my own!
      Let me know what you think 🙂

    You know, I might be the only white girl alive who doesn’t go CRAZY over Pumpkin Spiced anything! Fall is about apples & caramel and cinnamon for me! BUT! My boyfriend is a sucker for anything pumpkin, and I don’t think anyone would mind having their significant other like them more! 😉

      You are not alone! I have a few friends who are not into pumpkin much! I don’t like actual pumpkin spice things for the most part. This scrub reminds me of a pie baking! You can always just add the cinnamon to the scrub and it will work awesome 🙂

    Ooooh this scrub sounds like it would be perfect for fall! I looooove all things pumpkin at the moment 🙂 And I hope you avoided flooding over the weekend. It sounded pretty frightening over your way!
