DIY: Fall Starbucks-Inspired Body Scrubs

Happy fall, y'all! It is seriously my favorite season of the year. My birthday is in the fall! I love the weather, leaves, scarves, s'mores around a fire, pumpkins, and of course, those annual fall drinks from Starbucks. Are you a fan? Today I'm sharing some Fall Starbucks-Inspired Body Scrubs. These look good enough to drink, but instead are great exfoliators for your body. Enjoy.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Scrub
1 c sugar
1/2 c pumpkin puree (I used canned, but freshly pureed sugar/baking pumpkins works too)
1/4 c sweet almond oil 
1 tsp nutmeg
 Mix ingredients. Store in an air-tight container. Stir before using.

*For presentation purposes, I used whipped cream and dusted cinnamon and nutmeg on top.

Salted Caramel Mocha
1/2 c Kosher salt
1/2 c brown sugar
1 tsp powdered milk
1/4 c vitamin e oil
2 drops hazelnut toffee essential oil (optional)
2 drops caramel essential oil (optional)
Mix ingredients. Store in an air-tight container. Stir before using.
*For presentation purposes, I used whipped cream, drizzled caramel, and dusted sugar and sea salt on top.

Vanilla Cream Latte
1 tsp powdered milk
1 c sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essential oil
1/2 c melted coconut oil
Mix ingredients. Store in an air-tight container. Stir before using.

*For presentation purposes, I used whipped cream and sprinkled vanilla bean seeds on top.

  • While these are sugar and sugar-salt scrubs, feel free to substitute used coffee grounds for a bit more of an authentic smell. 
  • These store for up to six months in an air-tight container. Contents will need to be stirred before using. 
  • I recommend these scrubs for the body only. 
  • Due to the slippery nature of the oils, use caution exiting the tub/shower. 
  • Please substitute oils or other ingredients for others if allergic. 
  • This post is not affiliated with Starbucks. 
  • I'm doing this again with the winter drinks!

  16. Elle, these scrubs are ingenious! I always love the smell of Starbucks drinks way more than the taste, because I don't like coffee - this is the perfect way to inject a little Starbucks goodness into my life without wasting my money on something I don't enjoy. Thank-you for sharing!
