DIY Pumpkin Pie Sugar Scrub Recipe

Last week my son was complaining because he thought his feet were ugly.  He’s 14 and has reached that awkward phase of adolescence where he’s self conscious of every single part of his body.  In an effort to improve his foot image and have a little mother/son bonding time I suggested a pedicure.  He tried to convince me that feet really did not NEED regular maintenance.  I assured him that everyone should be putting a little effort into their feet now and then even if they weren’t going around sporting hot pink polish and toenail art. Hopefully one day his future wife will thank me for this advice.  We used up the last of my lemon and rosemary salt scrub so today I decided to make a new sugar scrub highlighting a few fall scents so we can do it again next week.

Pumpkin is incredibly good for the skin.  It’s high in antioxidants and beta carotene and is only lightly acidic.  This sugar scrub uses a combination of olive oil and vitamin E to add moisture back to the skin and brown sugar to remove dead skin cells.  If you use it on your face just scrub gently…feet you can be a little rougher with.  It also uses pumpkin pie spice but you can use a combination of  cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cloves if you don’t have it on hand.  Personally I like a little bit more cloves than you usually find in pumpkin pie spice so I added an extra sprinkle of that to my sugar scrub.

Now the only downside to this sugar scrub is that it makes you incredibly hungry!  I recommend not actually having any pumpkin pie in the house when you do this or you will end up eating the entire thing.  Seriously..I used it on my hands and I keep smelling myself.  I need to go find pie.  Like, right now!

  1. This looks great! How long do you think a product like this lasts? Would it need to be refrigerated? Thanks in advance.
    • I have found that the sugar scrubs have such a high sugar concentration that things dont grow well in them. I keep mine at room temperature and try to use within a month or so. keep the lid on and dont put in direct sunlight or someplace really warm.
  2. This sounds wonderful! I am looking forward to trying it very soon. Thanks for sharing it.
  3. This sounds amazing, Diane! I can just imagine how good this is for your skin! I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday, Kathy
  4. Oh this is amazing! I love sugar scrub! I want to try this recipe! http://familyfocusblog.com
  5. Love this! I used to buy a pumpkin pie scrub from Bath & Body Works, but they no longer make it. It was one of my favorite scrubs because it smells so yummy and makes your skin soft. Definitely trying this DIY one.
