My God-given sponsor, Tracey Campbell, hosted a 101 class in her home and she was so sweet to offer all of the attendees an opportunity to make the pumpkin spice sugar scrub I featured here earlier in the month, except with REAL pumpkin in it. Hee hee! That took it to a whoooole other level. It is DIVINE! Just add 1-2 Tbsp. of organic canned pumpkin--Try that!
Then I got to thinking... I remember seeing a pumpkin spice latte idea on the Essential Oils Recipes Facebook page. Ahem...Are YOU thinking what I'M thinking?!?
Oh em gee! I twisted on that idea a lil bit too. Instead of adding ground coffee to the scrub, I added a Starbucks Via. (That's their line of instant coffee, and it's yum) Because, really, I don't need any more lil' exfoliaters in there, and cleaning up the grounds after a legit coffee scrub takes a minute or two....I just want to be transported to the lovely 'land of latte' and this totally fits the bill!
Here's what you need for a small 4 oz. jar like in the picture, and simply adjust if you'd like to make more.
1/2 c. Organic Sugar
2 Tbls. Organic Coconut Oil, melted
1 Tbls. Organic canned pumpkin
1 tsp. Organic Shea butter, melted
1/2 tsp. Organic Vanilla
fresh grated organic cinnamon (optional)
1-2 Tbsp instant coffee (Any instant coffee will do!)
And... 1 drop each: Young Living Nutmeg, Clove, Cardamom and Stress Away, and 2 drops of Cinnamon Bark
Just mix in a glass or stainless bowl to your taste and spoon it up! Into... the... jars... :-) YES, OF COURSE I TASTED SOME... YES, IT'S GOOD! Yes, I am still tasing it right now....hee hee
Almost everything we used to make this can be found in our A-store. Finding organic cinnamon and pumpkin should be easy enough on your own. If not--LMK. We're also happy to answer questions. I also wanted to share that Tracey (she is so stinkin' SMART!) uses a couple tiny crock pots to keep her coconut oil and shea butter liquid for our make and takes. Isn't that smart?! I think something like this triple crock pot would be great. (Update-I bought it, I love it!) http://amzn.to/2d1Rz3e
Tracey also uses throwaway plastic table cloths in our work area. That must be part of why shes seems to enjoy our make n' takes as much as we do. :-) If you don't have a canning jar funnel, what are you waiting for?!? No more painfully slow spooning, just dump and smoosh! http://amzn.to/2cAIr7u PS--Today (9/16/16) the larger 8 oz jars are only $8.07 on Amazon. You're welcome. :-)
