This scrub has ground coffee in it that is also said to tighten skin and shrink fat cells thus reducing the appearance of cellulite! What a bonus! Not only does Pumpkin Spice Latte Sugar Scrub smell heavenly, it also moisturizes and can reduce the appearance of cellulite.

We do love our homemade scrubs and healthy skin care recipes. If you love them too take a look at homemade natural shimmering Lip balm, Healing Hand scrub and Homemade Healing Ointment for more great ideas.

Of course I couldn’t wait to try it, right after I made it I hopped in the shower and vigorously rubbed it on my legs before I shaved them. I must say if it wasn’t 9:00 at night I would have run to Starbucks right then and there and bought myself a pumpkin spice latte!

DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte Sugar Scrub

Oh my heavens! Glorious yummy coffee scents mixed with pumpkin and cinnamon filled my entire bathroom.  When I finished exfoliating and shaving my legs, they were so smooth and soft!

Let’s Talk About Coconut Oil:

Coconut oil is a huge subject. This amazing oil has so many uses as a food and for skin care and it is wonderfully good for you. Today I’ll keep the focus on skin care. Using coconut oil  in any body scrub leaves your skin exfoliated by the scrub ingredient, in this case, coffee grounds and WONDERFULLY moisturized by the coconut oil! I have been using coconut oil for almost two years now; as a make-up remover, moisturizer and  food. It’s a very healthy fat for your body, inside and out!

  • Coconut oil soaks right into your skin, leaving it moisturized, but not sticky or oily feeling. My skin LOVES the feeling and results of using this oil!
  • Coconut oil will NOT go rancid. You can leave is sitting on you counter for a year and it will be fine.
  • Coconut oil has antibiotic properties. It may be for this reason I can use it so successfully on my skin. I have used many moisturizers in the past, all non comedogenic products because I always break out. Coconut oil is so far, the only product I can use as a moisturizer that won’t give me acne!

For more research on Coconut oil I have links for you at the post bottom.

Hello, I am very excited to try this recipe, but I am very curious why it is stated that it is only good for three weeks? If I give it for as a gift I was hoping that it would last for several months, thank you! Nancy

Hi Nancy! The storage time will depend on what type of container you are planning to use. If you want it to last for months, I would make sure you have it in an airtight container. I hope that helps! Thank you for your comment!

I LOVE sugar scrubs! They really make your skin feel so silky smooth. Coffee is supposed to be really good with helping circulation on the skin and therefore helping stretch marks. Thanks for sharing the recipe on the Homestead Blog Hop!! Pinning!
