My sister gave me a recipe for a DIY coffee scrub several years ago, and I love making it to this day! I use it in the shower and not only does it make my skin silky-smooth, but the coffee perks me up and I swear it firms up my behind! With pumpkin season upon us and pumpkin spice coffee so readily available, I had a lightbulb moment and thought to make a pumpkin spice coffee scrub based on my sister's recipe. All I did was replace regular ground coffee with pumpkin spice ground coffee and it came out incredible!
I love everything pumpkin spice, so I usually end up buying pumpkin spice coffee this time of year, despite the fact that I'm not a big fan of flavored coffee (the cute packaging always gets me!). With this recipe, I can use up the pumpkin spice coffee I buy and continue using it all year to make this recipe.
I love how this Pumpkin Spice Coffee Scrub smells and how it moisturizes and exfoliates my skin. Plus, this is such a quick and easy recipe, and you probably already have the ingredients on hand. Check out how to make your own Pumpkin Spice Coffee Scrub below:
Pumpkin Spice Coffee Scrub
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup cane sugar
- 5 tablespoons pumpkin spice ground coffee
- 1/4 cup organic coconut oil, slightly melted (you can also use olive oil if you prefer)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a small bowl, add the brown sugar, cane sugar and pumpkin spice ground coffee and mix together. Then add the slightly melted coconut oil and vanilla extract and stir all together until well-incorporated. Put it in a jar, bottle, or other container and use it on your entire body to exfoliate and moisturize next time you shower.
Note: The coffee may stain your tub or shower, so be sure to thoroughly rinse and wipe down any surfaces after using this scrub.
After you make this scrub, let me know what you thought of it in the comments!
Stay spooky my pumpkins!
