Homemade beauty recipes are always a fun idea on a rainy day. Not to mention, they also save you a few dollars on products you might already be using 🙂
This pumpkin and cinnamon body scrub will get you in a holiday mood with it’s yummy scent and smooth feel on your skin. If you want to share, make a couple extra batches and give them to family and friends. Fancy up the scrub in a clean mason jar, by adding a bow or printing out a pretty label.
Homemade pumpkin and cinnamon body scrub recipe
- 1/2 of 1 can of pumpkin puree
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 cup of sifted brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
Mix all ingredients together until blended well. Once done scoop scrub into a clean mason jar for storage. Toss a pinch of sea salt on top for a nice look.
Use this scrub twice a week to exfoliate your skin. The pumpkin scent is great for this time of year, and it actually helps control acne-prone skin. The sugar is what helps with exfoliation, and the coconut adds much needed moisture for baby-soft skin. Be sure to keep the scrub refrigerated so it lasts 3-4 weeks, or toss it out once you start noticing its spoiling.
*As with all homemade recipes, be sure to pre-test the product on a patch on your skin to avoid any skin allergies.
