Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub

Today we’re sharing a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub.  This sugar scrub is the perfect way to welcome fall with everything we love about pumpkin and it’s spice.  This scrub is the perfect thing to make to pamper yourself but also can make a great gift.

With the holiday season coming up, we’re hoping to bring you several recipes and ideas for DIY gifts.  This sugar scrub is easy to make and requires very little ingredients.  You can even make this scrub just a little bit more Christmasy by adding some extra cinnamon and cloves.  That would just really set the Christmas mood and have an amazing smell.

If gifting, package your sugar scrub up in a cute little jar.  You can use a small mason jar or a jar with a hinged lid.  You can also make a little tag or label to dress up your jar.  Give this scrub away by itself or in combination with other bath items.  You can even make a cute little pampering or relaxation gift where you include other items with this scrub such as candles, chocolate or wine.

  3. Create a tag or sticker to affix to the jar if gifting. 

So get creative and either come up with your own ideas of different combinations or different types of scrubs you can make. These are really inexpensive gift ideas because you can make a large recipe up and split it up into several smaller containers or jars.  This will save you both time and money as you can make multiple gifts at once.

This is the first DIY gift idea that we’re sharing on our blog.  We plan to have a series of different gift ideas during the months of October and November.  That way you will be set up with great handmade gift ideas you can inexpensively make in an effort to help make your holidays happy and less stressful.  Gift ideas that don’t require much time or energy to make are one of the ways to reduce holiday stress.

We’d love to hear what you think about this recipe.  We’d also love to hear if you have your own pumpkin recipes that you enjoy.  Let us know in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by and visiting Sunup to Sundown!  We’ll be back soon with another recipe or update regarding our garden or our journey to becoming more self-reliant.
