Pumpkin Spice Coffee Scrub Recipe

Since Halloween is tomorrow, I'm not sure how much longer pumpkins have in the limelight before Christmas flavors take the center stage.  I love the flavors of Christmas, but not much compares to the skin-loving benefits of pumpkin. 

I wanted to make one more pumpkin scrub for my feet and body before we say goodbye to pumpkin for the year, so I made this pumpkin spice coffee scrub recipe with Epsom salts that The Epsom Salt Council recently sent me.

Pumpkin is natural chemical exfoliant, so it's a great addition to a body scrub.  I really like to use pumpkin on my feet because it removes dead skin cells while the fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids exfoliate.  

Pumpkin molecules are small enough to penetrate in to the skin.  The vitamins A and E soften the skin.  The coconut oil also nourishes the skin and softens it. 


For more exfoliating power, I used Epsom salts and ground coffee.  The coffee also add a wonderful aroma for the scrub.

Epsom salts work better than sugar scrubs on rough or dry skin.  That's why I really like this recipe as a foot scrub more than a body scrub, although it can be used on the body.  


Ingredients

Directions


If your coconut oil is hard, you can soften it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds before you make the scrub.  

Mix all ingredients together and stir well.  Gently scrub your hands, legs, arms, or feet in a circular motion.  Rinse well.

Do not use on the face.
