I have been on a pumpkin-inspired DIY roll lately. Last week I shared my favorite homemade pumpkin spice body scrub recipe. And a few days ago I shared my diy pumpkin enzyme face mask recipe.

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.

Since pumpkin is so great for the skin, I thought it would be a great addition to my homemade body butter. I also added some fall-inspired essential oils that give it that pumpkin spice scent.

Not only does this homemade pumpkin spice body butter smell amazing but it also moisturizes very well.
