This weekend I had a slight freak out when I was looking through my traffic sources and noticed a crazy spike in views on these pumpkin spice latte ice cubes. Turns out, Women's Health Magazine's site found them somehow and shared them in this post. AH!!!! I was SO excited, because DUH! I was immediately filled with the inspiration bug and I decided I had to do more pumpkin things because I really haven't given them enough of a spotlight on here. Today I bring you my current beauty favorite, a brown sugar and pumpkin coffee body scrub. It smells incredible, leaves my skin super soft and moisturized, and it's so inexpensive to make!
To make your own brown sugar & pumpkin coffee body scrub you will need:
-1/2 cup of ground pumpkin coffee (my favorite is the bag shown below. I buy it every year at Marshall's for $4.99 and it's delicious!)
-1/4 cup of brown sugar
-1/4 cup of sea salt
-1/4 cup of coconut oil
Start off by brewing yourself a nice cup of coffee. Light a candle, enjoy all the great things about Fall. Be real happy.
Next, combine your coffee grounds, salt and brown sugar in a bowl. Slowly stir in your coconut oil until everything is well mixed.
Pour it in a jar and enjoy it next time you're in the shower. I just use my hand to rub it in, focusing on my legs and any dry patches. Ta-da! All things pumpkin, all of the time!
Have you made a body scrub at home before? What are some of your favorite ingredients to use?
