Pumpkin Spice Latte Sugar Scrub

Well, since it's officially "red cup" season, it seems about right that I'd get around to posting a tutorial for my favorite autumn exfoliating and smoothing scrub.
This scrub is super easy to make with only 4 ingredients, and my husband drinks so much coffee that this is the perfect way to re-purpose his leftover grounds.

All you need are: 3/4 cup granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons cup coffee grounds (if you're using used grounds, make sure they are mostly dry), 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice, and 1/4 cup coconut oil.
To make the scrub, mix the ingredients together and pour them into a mason jar for storage.

Pin it for later!
 I apply this scrub every night before bed to remove dead skin cells, brighten skin, and moisturize all night.  When you're ready to use it, first take off your jewelry.  Then, (with dry hands) rub about a teaspoon of scrub into your hands, in a circular motion, for 30 seconds.  Finally, rinse your hands with warm water (no soap).
This scrub also makes a fantastic gift or favor for your Thanksgiving dinner!  You can also check out my favorite winter scrub (honey lemon sugar) here, too!
