Leftover pumpkin is the perfect ingredient to make your skin glow.
The Travertine Spa Collection offers this recipe for an Organic Brown Sugar Holiday Exfoliating Scrub:
Please use very fresh and organic products when possible. This should be made within minutes of mixing.
- 1 cup blended pumpkin
- 1 cup brown Sugar
- 1/2 c Epsom Salt
- 1/4 c jojoba oil (can substitute sweet almond oil)
- 3 dashes of Nutmeg
- 2 drops Clove Essential Oil
Stir all ingredients together in a earthenware or plastic bowl (not metal). Use in bath or as a fragrant soak in the shower. The pumpkin enzymes can help to removed dead skin cells. The brown sugar is a gentle and yummy way to exfoliate while receiving the energizing benefits of clove essential oil. Be careful as oils can cause surfaces to become slippery.
Sounds like a great way to use up some leftover pumpkin for a chemical free approach to spa-like skin care!
