Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub

Wanna smell like pumpkin spice and have ya skin feel nice? We got you! We made an exfoliating but nourishing pumpkin spice body scrub! This scrub includes sunflower oil, jojoba oil, brown sugar, honey, and Nature’s Flavors Organic Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Powder. All of the ingredients that we used for this scrub have amazing benefits for your skin. Here’s a quick breakdown of them:

Sunflower Oil Is;

  • non-comedogenic! This means it will moisturize your skin without clogging your pores.
  • rich in Vitamin E! Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps protect your skin against free radicals.
  • amazing at protecting your skin’s natural barrier. Sunflower oil contains an element named Linoleic acid which can help your skin retain moisture and protect it against germs and bacteria.

Jojoba Oil Is;

  • a natural humectant! This means it helps your skin retain moisture by creating a protective barrier.
  • a sebum controller. Jojoba oil is similar to the sebum produced by your body naturally. It sends a signal to your hair and sweat follicles letting them know that no more sebum is needed
  • also non-comedogenic. No clogged pores here!

Brown Sugar Is;

  • the perfect exfoliator. Brown sugar helps molecules deeply penetrate the skin which loosens bonds of skin cells. This promotes new cell growth reveling healthier skin.
  • a natural humectant. It keeps your skin beautiful and moisturized!
  • very moisturizing! Even though brown sugar removes dead skin cells, its properties keep your skin hydrated and supple.

Honey Is;

  • anti-microbial. It helps your skin fight against infections.
  • great at fading scars! Since honey is rich in antioxidants, it helps repair and nourish damaged skin.
  • extremely hydrating! Making it the perfect addition to any body scrub!

The Process

For this sugar scrub you’ll need, a medium mixing bowl, measuring cups, measuring spoons, a spatula, and a container to store your scrub in. As we mentioned earlier, we used brown sugar (2 cups), sunflower oil (½ cup), jojoba oil (½ cup), honey (1 tablespoon), and our Organic Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Powder (½ teaspoon).
