DIY Pumpkin Spice Sugar Lip Scrub + Free Printable
Welcome back Marianela from Love Vividly with a much needed beauty DIY for dryness!
Hi guys! I don’t know about you, but my lips have been crazy dry with this weather change. One minute it’s 80 degrees out, then the next it’s down to 40. I’m finding myself constantly applying chapstick to keep them at peace and not drying up.
If you’re finding your lips doing the same thing, look no further! This lip scrub will help remove all the dry skin and replenish them with beautiful new moisturized lips.
Here’s the recipe!
Ingredients and Supplies Needed:
* I was able to fill 2 of the jars with this recipe below. Please keep in mind this may vary depending on the size of the jar you chose. The rule of thumb for this recipe is to always have a 1 to 1 ratio for the sugar and coconut oil.
- Jars (I purchased these jars from Michaels)
- ½ cup Sugar *
- ½ cup Coconut Oil *
- ¼ teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice seasoning
- Pumpkin Spice Sugar Lip Scrub Printable (Note: label is 1.5 in X 1.5 in.)
Step 1: Pour sugar, coconut oil, and pumpkin pie spice seasoning into a bowl. Mix well.
Step 2: Place sugar lip scrub into jar.
Step 3: Cut out label and place onto jar.
Step 4: Your sugar lip scrub is ready for use, or ready to be gifted to someone special this holiday season!
After I mixed this scrub together, it smelled absolutely amazing and reminded me of everything pumpkin spice! Yum!! Not only does it smell good, but it also leaves your lips feeling smooth and rejuvenated! #winning

How do you use this, do you put it on and then rinse it off?
Holly Wadedonna Hopkins
Hi Donna! Yes, you put it on your lips and lightly rub it to exfoliate, then rinse it off
Which type of sugar is best to use please?
Holly WadeJessica Smith
Hi Jessica! This example uses standard white granulated sugar (but you can also mix with a little brown sugar)
Hi! Does this need to be refrigerated? Will the oil go rancid?
Holly WadeCarole Knudsen
Hi Carole! No, you can store the sugar scrub at room temperature as long as it’s in an airtight container. It should last approximately 6 months.
What should the final consistency be? Mine seems oily
Holly WadeHaley Konor
Hi Haley! The consistency should be like an oiled sugar. If you have oil that is not sticking with sugar, you can either drain it or add more of the dry ingredients to balance it out.
Tried this out, came out great! Used your idea of mixing cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. I didn’t add the nutmeg though-still came out fine! 🙂
Yay! So happy to hear it worked out for you!!
Would I be able to make it with Cinnamon instead of Pumpkin Pie Spice Seasoning?
Holly WadeCrystal Jewel
Hi Crystal! You could use a mixture of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves to create your own pumpkin spice mix. Cinnamon alone would work too but may not achieve the exact same scent.
Is there any other Spice I could use if I don’t have any Pumpkin Pie Spice Seasoning in stock?

Hi! You could use a mixture of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves to create your own pumpkin spice mix
how much of each spice should I mix together?
Hi Miriam, here’s a great example of how to make your own pumpkin pie spice: https://www.bettycrocker.com/how-to/tipslibrary/baking-tips/how-to-make-pumpkin-pie-spice
How long is this good for, do you know?
I think sugar scrubs will be good for about 6 months
I’m sorry , so I heat the oil first before adding to the mix?
Nope, no need to heat the oil! You simply need the coconut oil to be warm enough to be liquid.
Yum!!!!! What a great idea. I actually haven’t used much coconut oil lately, so I have a lot of it in the pantry. This looks like a great way to use it!
Coconut oil is magical! Let me know if you try out the recipe 🙂
