Easy Homemade Pumpkin Body Scrub

pumpkin body scrubIf you’re just getting around to carving your pumpkin, be sure to save all of your pumpkin guts (seeds and pulp). Why? Because you can use them to create a delicious, skin-softening body scrub, of course. Here, Janice Cox, author of Natural Beauty at Home, tells us how to whip it up …

Step 1: Process your pumpkin seeds and pulp in a blender or food processor until you have a coarse scrub, says Cox.

Step 2: Mix one cup of the seed blend with one cup of raw sugar and two tablespoons of almond oil.

Step 3: Rub it all over your body while showering and rinse.

Bonus tip: “Freeze any extra pumpkin pulp for use year round,” says Cox.

  1. This is a great idea! I still have some pumpkins that need to be gutted, so I’ll definitely be trying this.
