DIY Pumpkin Spice Body Butter

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the changing colors of the leaves, the crisp smell in the air, the cute leggings, and the cozy hoodies. And I really enjoy the season’s popular flavors–including pumpkin!

It is packed with ingredients your skin will love as the weather cools down, and it has the nice scent of pumpkin spice to fit this fun time of year.

I love making my own natural skincare, and this whipped pumpkin spice body butter is one of my favorites. It’s made with all-natural ingredients that will keep your skin silky and smooth.

Many people get dry skin in autumn and winter and a looking for ways to moisturize the skin. It’s hard to find an all-natural, organic body butter, and so expensive! It’s much more affordable (and fun) to make your whipped body butter at home.

Pumpkin is a great addition to skincare DIY recipes because of its amazing skin benefits.

Pumpkin contains enzymes, AHAs, and antioxidants that help to brighten, smooth, and soften the skin. It also contains vitamins A, C, and E and antioxidants. All of which help fight sun damage and wrinkles. 

The DIY pumpkin spice body butter is simple to make and only calls for 4 simple ingredients. It’s light and fluffy!

Homemade whipped pumpkin spice body butter ingredients

This homemade pumpkin spice body butter includes shea butter, pumpkin seed oil, jojoba oil, and pumpkin spice essential oil blend.

Shea Butter

Shea butter is an excellent moisturizer that melts on contact with the skin. This plant-based butter protects the skin against water loss and outside weathering (sun, snow, rain, and wind). Shea butter pampers the skin and is perfect for natural skincare.

Pumpkin Seed Oil

Since it’s pumpkin season, so I thought, why not make body butter with pumpkin seed oil. This oil contains omega fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, which deeply nourish and moisturize the skin.

Jojoba oil

Balancing, softening, soothing. Balances sebum production, so great for oily skin, acne, or dry skin. Anti-inflammatory may be used to treat eczema and psoriasis. Light and well absorbed.

Pumpkin Spice essential oil blend

Inspired by this grateful time of year, I created a pumpkin pie spice essential oil blend to use in some of my fall skincare. The flavor of this blend is pretty much equal to that of the powdered spice version, and it’s a cinch to make.

I decided to stick to the classic pumpkin pie spices for this autumn-inspired body butter with essential oils: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove, and allspice.

Mica (optional)

I mixed a small amount of bronze mica into the whipped body butter recipe to give a subtle color. The mica won’t be visible on your skin.

How to make DIY Pumpkin Spice Whipped Body Butter

1. Whisk together the jojoba oil, pumpkin seed oil, and essential oils. 

2. Melt the shea butter in a double boiler. Stir occasionally to help the melting process, and be careful not to overheat.

3. Transfer the melted shea butter to a clean and cold mixing bowl and chill in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes. The shea butter shouldn’t freeze completely but cool enough to be whipped.

4. Beat the chilled shea butter to fluffy peaks. Still whipping with the mixer, slowly pour small amounts of the oil mixture. (don’t dump it all at once, or you’ll end up with an oily mess).  Optionally, add 1/2 teaspoon bronze mica and whip until well incorporated.

5. Fill the pumpkin spice whipped body butter in airtight storage jars or cosmetic containers.

Notes

*** If you find your body butter isn’t getting fluffy, you need to refrigerate it some more. Once it’s cooled enough, it will whip and stay fluffy.

NOTES:

How to keep your body butter from hardening and staying whipped?

Keep your body in an airtight jar or container in a dry place, away from moisture, sunlight, and heat sources. Store it at room temperature to keep your body butter whipped and soft.

I don’t recommend storing your pumpkin spice body butter in the refrigerator. (it’ll harden fast)

How long does homemade body butter last?

The shelf life of pumpkin spice whipped body butter is six months.
