Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice

That is the perfect way to describe this recipe....and it's NOT even edible! That's right, I'm this excited about something and it's not food. Shocking I know! One of the most popular recipes on this blog isn't food either....lol. My Sea Salt Hand Scrub has been "Googled" by countless people and I would like to think women around the world have softer hands b/c of me:) This time around, I have the perfect scrub for autumn; and I think it would make a great gift for the holiday season! On a rainy October day I got a message from my friend Erin w/ a link she thought I would enjoy. Oh how right she was. As soon as I read it I couldn't wait to make it, so the minute I got home, I did!! I even shared it w/ my mother-in-law who also loved it! The link I clicked on took me to Under The Table and Dreaming by Stephanie Lynn and if you head over there, she even has some printable labels to use if you decide to make this for gifts! What a great lady!! I actually cut the recipe in half, and it was more than enough for myself and to share. I can't wait to make it for Alex's teacher and family for Christmas gifts. Just one *warning* though: When you use it on your hands, they will smell just like pumpkin pie...and you might just find yourself nibbling on them for an afternoon snack!!

Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub

1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1 TBS pumpkin pie spice (recipe below)
1/2 c. plus 1/2 TBS vegetable oil

Mix sugars and spice together making sure there are no lumps. Add in oil and mix well. Store in airtight container away from direct sunlight.

Pumpkin Pie Spice

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

This makes 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. 3 tsp will give you 1 TBS
