Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub

Today I am sharing my newest…Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub!  I have grown quite fond of sugar scrubs lately.  I have shared a few here in the past…Lemon Sugar Scrub (one of my absolute favorites), Brown Sugar Scrub, and a Peppermint Foot Scrub.

They are so easy to make and can be made with ingredients you already most likely have on hand.  They make your hands and skin so soft and depending on the “flavors” you add, smell amazing!  But I love the combination of fall spices that are in this specific body scrub.  They smell so amazing and the scent lingers on your skin long after you have used the scrub.  So you get wafts of “Fall” all day long! Yum!


Since I am craving all things pumpkin and cinnamon right now I thought it would be great to come up with a Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub…boy does this smell amazing.

You will need the following to make the Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub.

Supply List

Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub-09

Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub

Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub


  • 2 cups Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup White Sugar (or Raw Sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup Almond Oil or Coconut Oil (add more if needed)


  1. In a medium mixing bowl combine the sugars and spices.
  2. Mix together with a wooden spoon.
  3. Slowly pour in the Oil and stir until well blended.
  4. You may add more if your scrub is too dry.
  5. You don't want it to be runny, just a nice damp texture.
  6. Cover in a tight container.
  7. Store in the refrigerator up to 8 weeks.


This scrub can be a great way to pamper yourself during the hussle and bustle of the Holiday season.  Especially after you have been on your feel all day preparing this year’s Thanksgiving Feast.  Or whip up a batch and give it to the hostess of your Thanksgiving Dinner.


*Update–Many of you have asked if there was a printable label available for the Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub.  I am not sure why I didn’t save the original one I made, but I couldn’t find it in my files.  So, I have created a new one to share with you if you are interested.  You can access the free printable label here:

  3. 3

    why does it have to be refrigerated? Sorry if that is a dumb question its just, I’d really like to keep this in my bathroom but I won’t if it will mold. I keep my coconut oil in my bathroom at all times because i used it on my skin and hair.

    I’m making homemade hampers for Xmas this year and your scrubs are perfect. I just made the peppermint one for my sister. It looks so pretty. I’m going to make this one for my mum. Am also wondering about the expiration date and reason for keeping in the fridge.

  15. 15

    Where can I find the template for your labels and what type of labels are they?

  16. 16

    Does this sugar scrub have to be refrigerated? Hoping to give in a christmas gift and that may make it more complicated. Thanks!

    It shouldnt need refrigeration at all. Nothing is perishable. Everything is quite shelf stable. Sugar is also a natural preservative. Just make sure your hands are clean when using it. Better yet use a clean utilsil each time to stir the contents and then put some in your hands :)

      I agree Tara, I don’t see anything in this that would require refrieration.
      If someone is concerned just add a few drops of Cinnamon & Clove to act as a preservative.

    Just found your site.. trying to make some home made gifts and i wondered where do you get the jars (and labels).. they are really cute and the they look the perfect size i did not see that you had responded so i am hoping you may email me or if someone else sees this that they may point me in the right direction :)

  19. 21

    I mentioned this fabulous sugar scrub on my Capturing Inspirations blog :) Thank you for sharing such a fun recipe to try for the fall season!

  20. 24

    Hi, it’s me again! Do you have the labels for this? My sister is obsessed with Pumpkin Spice and I know she’d love this!

    Thanks so much! :)

  21. 25

    This is great! Where can I find the label? Thanks!

  22. 26

    How much does this make?

  23. 27

    I made this last night and it made my hands feel heavenly! I used coconut oil and the smell of coconut was more prevalent than the spices, so to fix that I just added a bit more of the spices. I can’t wait to give it as gifts. Thanks so much for this wonderful idea.
