Homemade Pumpkin Sugar Scrub Bars

These homemade pumpkin sugar scrub bars are so easy to make, and you may even have a few of the ingredients in your kitchen already!

Yes, I did say the kitchen! Olive oil helps to keep skin soft; pure cane sugar is an exfoliant; and pumpkin pie spice – well, that’s to make this sugar scrub small autumnal!

Sugar scrubs are a wonderful exfoliant and using them helps to remove dead skin cells from your face, lips, and body. I like to use them once or twice a week and it’s amazing how different my skin feels after using a sugar scrub!

Materials & Tools Used in This Craft

How Do I Make Pumpkin Pie Spice?

If you can’t source ready-made pumpkin pie spice, it is so easy to make yourself using spices you may already have in your pantry.

Stir the following spices together and store your homemade pumpkin pie spice in an airtight jar in a cool, dry place. Use as required in recipes. You can adjust the levels of spices to your own personal preferences if you like.

What are the benefits of sugar scrub?

Sugar makes an amazing abrasive ingredient in scrubs. It’s a natural humectant, so it retains moisture and ensures skin is kept hydrated, making it ideal for delicate and sensitive skin, especially because it melts away upon contact with water. Sugar is also known to be a pure, natural source of Glycolic Acid, also known as an AHA, which helps to break down dead, flaky skin and help support cell turnover.Nourished Life
