If you want your pumpkin body scrub to smell deliciously spicy, try this recipe infused with cinnamon and clove powder. Brown sugar increases its exfoliating power while honey makes it even more moisturizing.


  • Pumpkin puree – (1/2) cup
  • Coffee grounds – 2 tablespoons
  • Organic coconut oil – 2 tablespoons
  • Honey – 2 tablespoons
  • Brown sugar – (1/2) cup
  • Cinnamon – 1 teaspoon (finely ground)
  • Clove – (1/2) teaspoon (finely ground)


Take a large mixing bowl and put the puree of pumpkin in it. Add coffee grounds and brown sugar. Also, pour organic coconut oil and honey into the bowl. Blend everything together by using a hand whisk. Make sure that the brown sugar is melted only partially. Sprinkle finely ground cinnamon and clove over the mixture and give the whole thing a final mix.

Recipe 3:

It is just the perfect way to give your cellulite-busting recipe a serious antioxidant boost. White sugar can replace its brown counterpart efficiently while a touch of spice makes the scrub more interesting.


  • Pumpkin puree – 2 cups
  • Green tea – 1 teabag (can be replaced with 1 teaspoon of tea leaves)
  • Granulated white sugar – 1 cup (the granules should be larger than regular ones)
  • Clove – (1/4) teaspoon (finely powdered)
  • Water – (1/2) cup


Prepare a green tea concoction by brewing the tea leaves in water or submerging the teabag in it. You either use the freshly brewed tea or turn it completely chilled before including in the recipe. Transfer the green tea concoction to a mixing bowl, put pumpkin puree in it, and add granulated white sugar. Mix them well until the sugar granules melt to some extent. Add clove powder to this mixture and blend everything once again.
