Pumpkin Spice Latte Sugar Scrub

The celebration of all things pumpkin spice continues with a creamy and luxurious Pumpkin Spice Latte Sugar Scrub. Made with a combination of skin-loving coffee butter and Foaming Bath Whip, this scrub moisturizes skin without a greasy feeling. Finely ground walnut shells and sugar gently remove dead skin, and the combination of Pumpkin Spice and Turkish Mocha Fragrance Oil leaves a light, spicy scent.

If you are looking for more ways to use coffee butter, the Whipped Coffee Butter Tutorial creates a fluffy and intensely moisturizing body butter. If you prefer a lighter moisturizer, the Coffee Butter Foot Creme features a delicious blend of Dark Rich Chocolate Fragrance Oil and Peppermint Essential Oil.

What You’ll Need:
8 oz. Foaming Bath Whip
1 oz. Coffee Butter
2 oz. Sugar
.2 oz Walnut Shells
3 ml Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil
1 ml Turkish Mocha Fragrance Oil
8 oz. Glass Bail Jar

A note about preservatives: Because the Foaming Bath Whip already contains a preservative, an additional preservative was not used in this recipe. If you would like to add a preservative, a .5% usage rate is recommended so as to not over preserve the product.

In a large mixing bowl, add the Foaming Bath Whip and coffee butter. Use a hand mixer to beat together. Coffee butter not only adds a delicious coffee scent, its smooth texture gives weight and moisture to the scrub.

TWO: Once thoroughly combined, add the granulated sugar and walnut shells. Turn on the mixer, and blend until the exfoliants are thoroughly incorporated. Walnut shells are finely ground, and give gentle exfoliation. The combination of granulated sugar and walnut shells create a medium exfoliator perfect for removing dead skin from the body, hands, legs and feet. Removing dead skin cells is crucial for moisturizer absorption!
THREE: Add the Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil, and the Turkish Mocha Fragrance Oil. Turn the beater on low, and mix until combined.
FOUR: Spoon the mixture into the glass bail jar, and enjoy!

Do you have a favorite fall treat? I’m looking forward to pairing my pumpkin spice latte with a pumpkin muffin or scone =)

    Hi, Kelsey! I am making the face scrub and face mask. I want to add sparkle to them – a golden sparkle, but I’m not sure what type of glitter is safe to use and easy to remove. I would even settle for gold specks, so long as they wash away with the mask and scrub. Do you have any suggestions of what I can add for this? I’ve also been looking into gold sugar, however, I feel the liquid mask will cause the color to separate from the sugar. Thanks in advance!

  2. Alicia says

    I would really love to try this recipe out! Unfortunately, I have an allergy to an ingredient in the foaming bath whip called propylene glycol. There are numerous recipes that call for foaming bath whip :( Do you have any suggestions as to how/if I could make my own? I would really appreciate any help you could give!

    Love this! I substituted the walnut shells for coffee grinds and used Butter Cream & Snickerdoodle BB fragrance. I really want to eat it!! I love the cellulite smoothing properties of coffee and with both coffee butter and coffee grinds I think it should be great! Next time I think I will leave out fragrance and see how that works…just coffee…mmmm….or get that Turkish Mocha Fragrance Oil from BB!

    Wonderful recipe. I loved working with the bath whip, took me about fifteen minutes time all together and came out great. I did not have the mocha scent, so I did a substitution of a dash of french vanilla and a hint of burnt sugar. That bath whip base is awesome to work with.

    So I just made this for Christmas gifts and I’m noticing mine aren’t as dark looking as your pictures. It smells great and definitely has texture but the coloration is significantly lighter.

    Do you think I’ve done something differently or wrong?

      Hi Henley!

      Did you change anything in the recipe? If not, it’s probably just batch variation! Because coffee butter is a natural ingredient, it can change color based on the soil, weather conditions, etc. Your coffee butter may be slightly lighter. You can also add some more walnut shells for some additional scrubbiness and color. :)

        Thanks for your response. No I didn’t change a single thing in the recipe, although I was a little confused when it came to some things. But I have a scale I bought through you guys so everything was measured out right.

        • Kelsey says

          Hi Henley!

          It sounds like it may just be a little batch variation in the coffee butter. That scrub should be just fine to use!

          Also, if you have any questions about the tutorial, I’d be more than happy to help you. :)

    Hi. I just recently made a batch of this body scrub and everyone loved it. I was wondering how I could make this a bit more moisturizing? If I add more of the coffee butter do I decrease the amount of foam whip used or leave it the same? Your suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks again for sharing this recipe!

    • Kelsey says

      Hi Lori!

      You can definitely add some more coffee butter to this recipe for added moisturization. We didn’t test this recipe with more coffee butter, so you may need to play around with the levels a bit. I would recommend starting out with 2 oz. of coffee butter and 7 oz. of Foaming Bath Whip. If you want it a little more buttery, you can add more coffee butter. :)

    I noticed there is no preservative in this recipe, i never know when to use one. I was told that any body product that will be exposed to water should have a preservative. Can you explain when i should use one? Thanks

  8. Sly says

    I know, I know, I know….Dumb question…BUT:

    How do you use this? Is it considered a scrub and after scrubbing your feet and/or whole body, do you then wash yourself with soap? Or is the foaming bath whip soapy enough and you just rinse off? Or will the sugar leave you sticky?


    • Kelsey says

      Hi Sly!

      Don’t worry, it’s not a dumb question at all!

      Some scrubs can leave a greasy feeling, so you may want to wash off with soap afterward. However, this scrub is very light, fluffy and cleansing. That means you can just apply and then rinse off.

      Also, I’ve used this scrub a lot and haven’t noticed any stickiness. :)

    I’d love to make this but wonder how the fats in the mix will affect the household plumbing when washing down the drain? I’m always careful to wait several days before washing soaping pots and utensils for the same reason. Does anyone have feedback from a plumber about this?

    • Kelsey says

      Hi Leslie!

      The Foaming Bath Whip in this scrub makes it incredibly light and fluffy, rather than oily or greasy. Also, the sugar and walnut shells are very fine.

      We have a jar here at the office and haven’t had any problems with plumbing issues. The trick is to use nice hot water to wash it down the sink. :)

    I can’t wait to try this one but never made these before. If I want to make several jars can I just double or triple the recipe or is recommended to just mix one jars worth at a time? Thanks!

  11. Sunny Gardner says

    I would like to make it from scratch, because I don’t have either product, foaming bath whip or coffee butter. If I use Shea butter, could I mix it with cocoanut oil, and what is foaming bath whip, and do you have a more “home-made” alternative? Thanks!

    • Kelsey says

      Hi Aline!

      How long it takes to whip your Foaming Bath Whip depends on several factors, including temperature, humidity etc. It may take a little longer than 10 minutes to get the fluffy texture you’d like. :)

  12. Lori says

    This recipe looks amazing! I want to try it for my sister’s birthday as her favorite fall drink is the PSL :-) Does this recipe fill 1 8oz jar? Wasn’t sure since sometimes when you whip ingredients you end up with more. Thanks!

    • Kelsey says

      Hi Anjelica!

      You can use a different butter for this! Each butter will have a different texture, so you may want to make a small test batch to see what you think of the finished product. :)

    • Kelsey says

      Hi Katie!

      Because we measured in ounces, I can’t tell you exactly how many teaspoons this would be. I would recommend adding two teaspoons and whipping it together. If you want it a little scrubbier, you can add more. :)
