DIY Pumpkin Spice Solid Sugar Scrubs

Just go ahead and give me all the booties, boots, any and every kind of fall footwear. But after a summer of sandals, my feet are in need of special treatment. So yeah, not only do I want all the boots, but I want all the pumpkin things, too. Basic and guilty as charged. Combine all of that and you've got yourself a diy. While I use these Pumpkin Spice Solid Sugar Scrubs on my feet, they're perfect on the rest of your body or as a gift. Read on to see how to make them:





Need:
  • 1 part carrier oil (whatever oil you'd like to use. Coconut is a fave in blogland)
  • 2 parts soap base (I got mine at Michaels)
  • 3 parts sugar (I used white, but whatever you'd like)
  • Essential oil (I used a body-safe scented oil)
  • Soap colorant (red and yellow)
  • Pumpkin mold (I got mine for around a dollar at Walmart)
  • Glass bowl
  • Spoon for mixing
Do:
  • Melt your soap base (and oil if it is solid). The best method is using a double boiler, but a microwave will work too. Remember, the bowl will be hot, so please take proper precautions.
  • Add in your colorant, scent, sugar, and mix everything.
  • Spoon or pour mixture into mold. Allow to cool before popping out of mold.
FYI:
  • If your mix begins to cool and harden too quickly, add more oil to the mix. If it looks too much like soap, add more sugar.
  • I used about 2 cubes to create around 20 or so of these. These are small molds I got at Walmart.
  • As for the soap and soap colorant, I purchased those at Michaels.
  • The scented oils I use are usually from Nature's Garden. These smell so good, but choose whatever scents you like. I know everyone isn't into pumpkin scents.
  • I used white sugar so I could easily color it, but for a more pumpkin spice feel, I have used raw and brown sugars, and avoided coloring the mix.
  • Since these are small, I use them on my feet, but they are fine to use on the rest of the body (skip the face).
  • Store these in a resealable container.
