    • Pumpkin Pie Sugar Scrub

      Bring the scents of the season into your bath with this aromatic pumpkin pie sugar scrub, a gently exfoliating scrub with a hint of cinnamon, cloves, allspice and zesty ginger to freshen and invigorate the skin.

      • 1 cup of sugar
      • 1/4 cup of pumpkin seed oil (can use olive oil instead)
      • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
      • pinch of nutmeg
      • pinch of cinnamon
      • pinch of ground cloves
      • pinch of ground allspice
      • pinch of ground ginger


      Combine all in a small bowl, mixing well. The pumpkin scrub will be the consistency of a thick paste.

      How to Use a Body Scrub:


      1. Sit on the edge of a tub and moisten the area you wish to scrub.
      2. Place a tablespoon or so of the body scrub in the palm and gently work each area for approximately 1 minute. If you work too quickly you won't properly exfoliate.
      3. Scour gently for just a few minutes.
      4. For baby smooth skin, exfoliate once weekly.
      5. Reminder: Body scrubs should never be used on the face.

        OK, this was my first attempt (and second) at making a home "beauty" product. I left the first batch on my kitchen counter... and sure enough, my teenage grand-daughter ate half of it. She loved it, so I had to hide batch #2 in my bedroom for myself. I used olive oil since it was on hand, and I love the results. Thanks for sharing RowansGarden.

        Definitely am going to try this! Two questions - does it need to be refrigerated and does it expire??

      Re: Repurposing Old Items into New Things!

      There are so many different things we repurpose around here. The one that I like the most is I turned my old changing table into a recycling station. I took it--it has 2 shelves and then the top. I...
