DIY pumpkin spice coffee scrub with essential oils for exfoliating skin

Pumpkin Spice Coffee Scrub for Exfoliating Skin

I'm in love with all things related to fall and pumpkin spice. So, I decided to develop a DIY Pumpkin Spice Sugar Coffee Scrub for Exfoliating Skin using essential oils. This skin scrub is so easy to make and it's really fun to use. I love how my skin feels after I use it, plus, I totally love the way it leaves my skin smelling like pumpkin spice coffee. Yum! I love the luxurious feeling my skin has after I use this scrub. I either use it on my hands and arms at the sink, scrub, then rinse it off, or use it in the shower to scrub, then rinse it off. However, I have not used it on my face yet, I'm a bit particular about my face as I have oily skin. I've been using non-toxic skincare products using essential oils for a couple of months and I have really loved the results.

Servings 15 uses


  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree from a can
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 8 drops frankincense essential oil
  • 2 drops clove essential oil
  • 1/4 cup ground coffee
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon and sugar mixture
  • 1 Tablespoons almond oil


  • Melt the coconut oil in a double boiler. If you do not have one, here's a trick: simply use a pot and lid. Put about 1-2 inches of water in the pot and heat it. Invert the pot cover and add the coconut oil to it and leave it there until the boiling water beneath the lid melts the coconut oil to a liquid. Remove from heat. Let the oil cool.
  • Combine the pumpkin puree, coffee grounds, brown sugar, and cinnamon-sugar in a bowl and stir well.
  • Combine all essential oils and almond oil to the coconut oil and stir.
  • Combine all essential oils and almond oil to the coconut oil and stir.
  • Blend the mixture in a small food processor for 45 seconds to a minute.
  • Scoop scrub into a container than can be sealed and store it in the fridge. Pull it out whenever you'd like to use it.
  • Scrub it on your skin and rinse it off.
