Delight in a delectable shower experience with these scrumptious DIY Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub Cubes. They will make your shower smell like a delicious fall bake shop!
Happy Wednesday, friends! I was originally going to hold onto this project a little longer but fall posts have been dominating my traffic since the start of August so I guess you’re ready for some fall content, which of course will always involve some Pumpkin Spice, am I right?!
I originally created this project last year for the Darice blog and it was quite a hit with the friends that I gifted them to, so I wanted to share them with you here as well. Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub Cubes are quick and easy to make and they transform your shower into a delicious fall bake shop… my only tip is you might want to have a yummy pumpkin spice treat of some sort ready to go when you get out of the shower because trust me, you will want one! 😉
DIY Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub Cubes

- Darice Soap Base
- ¾ cup Granulated Sugar
- 1/3 cup Fractionated Coconut Oil or Vitamin E Oil
- 1 drop Clove Essential Oil
- 1 drop Nutmeg Essential Oil
- 2 drops Cinnamon Essential Oil
- 1 tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice (optional)
- ½ bottle Orange Soap Dye
- Silicone Soap Mold
- Airtight Glass Jar
- Printable label (optional)
Combine sugar and pumpkin pie spice. The essential oils are what give most of the scent of the sugar scrub cubes but the pumpkin pie spice gives them a more authentic pumpkin spice look.
Cut up a 2 lb. block of soap base into 8 equal pieces and place into a microwave safe bowl.
Add coconut oil, essential oils and soap dye into another bowl mix well. Microwave soap base for 30 – 40 seconds or until melted, stirring every 10 seconds. Pour oil mixture into soap base and mix well. Have your molds close at hand and add sugar into soap/oil mixture. Combine QUICKLY and immediately pour into molds. The mixture hardens very quickly so if it hardens before it has all been poured into the molds, you can spoon it into the molds and press down with the back of a spoon to compact the cube together.
Allow to set for at least 1 hour. Turn mold upside down over a sheet of wax or parchment paper and gently press on the bottom of the mold to release the sugar scrub cubes.
For best longevity, keep the sugar scrub cubes sealed in an airtight container (outside of the shower is best to avoid extra moisture) and pop one out for a delectable pumpkin spice shower experience!
These DIY pumpkin spice sugar scrub cubes make a great gift too… put them in a jar with a pretty label (you can download my free my printable label here) and you have a perfect hostess, holiday or birthday gift.
Enjoy friends, and thank you for stopping by!
