    • Pumpkin Pie Sugar Scrub

      Pumpkin Pie Spice 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??

      Or, if the peels are from organic apples, you can use them to make homemade organic apple cider vinegar, which is incredibly healthy and has a myriad of different uses.
