my, oh my, pumpkin pie...sugar scrub!

Sugar scrubs have become my go-to for quick & easy family & friend gifts. With so many fragrances available, the options really seem endless. So today I've been tinkering (and avoiding other work that definitely needs doing!) with "recipes" and this pumpkin pie version seems just right for Thanksgiving.

So, if you're looking for a hostess gift to take along to Mom's or Grandma's next week, you may want to give her a jar of Pumpkin Pie Sugar Scrub. It's ready in a jiffy, but don't tell anyone...they'll think it took you
all afternoon! (On second thought, go ahead and tell...it would be fun for the girls to make several batches
while the boys are watching football!)

Pumpkin Pie Sugar Scrub

1/2 c. white sugar
1 c. brown sugar, packed
2 T. pumpkin pie spice
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 c. plus 1/2 T. sunflower oil*

Whisk together sugars, pie spice, and cinnamon. Add oil; stir to blend. Spoon into jars for gift giving. Makes about 2 cups.

*You can certainly use any oil you have on hand; however, I like sunflower oil because it doesn't have the strong aroma that so many other oils have.

I hope you enjoy this...I'm off to tinker with a candy cane scrub next. After all, the holidays will be here soon!
I'm also linking up to Verde Farm for their Farm Friend Friday...drop in for a visit, it's always lots of fun!


  1. What a great idea--using the pie spice--I'm going to have to try this.

  2. That's a great idea for a gift. I've never tried a sugar scrub, but it might be interesting.

    1. I hope you'll give it a try...terrific for keeping skin soft. I use it on my hands after outside chores (I don't always wear my gloves!)


Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!
