The cold weather is here and who doesn’t want to warm up with something hot like peppermint mocha or a pumpkin latte.
Well I don’t have a recipe for the drinks but I do have a recipe for a pumpkin latte body scrub.
Turning this holiday drink into a body scrub was the best idea every, not mine of course, but I do need to share this brilliant idea.
The accumulation of dead skin cells makes your skin look dull, scrubs help remove these cells to reveal youthful skin. With the dead cells removed, your skin also absorbs moisture better.
I was told the secret to using this scrub is to do with your skin dry or slightly damp, but not wet. The scrub has two sugars that help exfoliate and the olive and coconut add moisture. The result is velvety, smooth skin that feels amazing.
Pumpkin Body Scrub
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
½ a cup of Coconut Oil
2 teaspoons Extra virgin olive oil
5 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
½ teaspoon coffee extract
Start by mixing the sugars together. Next heat the coconut oil slightly (does not need to be liquid) and add to the sugars. The mixture will lump together so break up the clumps with a fork. In a separate bowl combine extra virgin olive oil, pumpkin spice and coffee extract and stir until completely combined. Combine the two mixtures and again it will clump. Use a fork to break up the clumps. Store mixture in an air tight container. It will keep for up to 6 weeks.
