You’ll love celebrating the changing seasons by diffusing our limited-time Pumpkin Pie Fall Blend, and we’re making our own Pumpkin Pie body butter, inspired by our new fall scent! The sky’s the limit for some amazing autumn body butters – let your imagination run wild!
Pumpkin Pie Body Butter
What you’ll need:
- 1/2 cup Shea Butter (unrefined)
- 1/4 cup Mango Butter
- 1/4 cup Jojoba Carrier Oil
- 1 tsp ground Cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground Nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp ground Clove
- 1.5 tsp Arrowroot powder
- 9 drops Peru Balsam
- 7 drops Copaiba Oleoresin
- 7 drops Orange Sweet
- 6 drops Cardamon
What you’ll do:
Warm a pan of water on the stove. Add butters, Jojoba, and ground spices to a medium glass bowl. Place over simmering water and heat until melted. Remove from heat and place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes until it begins to firm on the edges. Whip with a hand mixer until frothy. Return to refrigerator until solid, for about 30 minutes. Whip again, adding essential oils and arrowroot powder. Store butter in an airtight container.

Can you replace the Shea butter with additional mango butter? My Shea butter is quite old and it seems when I buy for new projects, so much goes to waste.
Alice, you can absolutely use more Mango instead. There will be a bit of a change in the overall consistency, but if reducing waste is what you’re after, then increasing mango sounds like a great idea. While I haven’t tried this recipe without shea, I’m sure it will still be very moisturizing and lovely. If you decide to give this a try, we would love to hear how it turns out!
I made this last night. It smells great and is very moisturizing. I was happy to find a recipe without coconut oil which I find dries my skin.
My daughter is a Pumpkin Pie fanatic. I need to make this for her!
I am a pumpkin pie fanatic and this sounds Divine, cant wait till I have all the oils to make it.
Can you add this to the downloads so I can print it?
Michelle, I sent you an email so you can print that 🙂
I need to make this!
This sounds amazing!
This sounds wonderful. I might need to get a few more things and try it out.
This sounds absolutely “delicious”! Off to buy Cardamom so I can whip up a batch!
OH MY!!! This sounds amazing!!! Definitely going to have to give this a try!!!
This sounds so delish! I can’t wait to try it
This sounds yummy! I’m thinking it would make great little Christmas gifts!
This sounds amazing! Can I use this while pregnant?
The Cardamom EO is not pregnancy safe in this recipe
This sounds like it would smell delicious!
I am so happy to see this recipe…with NO coconut oil (I see it in so many, but coconut oil dries my skin out)! I can’t wait to try this!
Ordering cardamom now. That’s all I am missing. Thanks PT.
Can’t wait to get the fall set so I can make this!
I can’t wait to try this!!
Sounds like it smells amazing! So excited to try this.
Great for the Fall!
Can’t wait to try this to start off fall!
I just ordered Peru Balsam and I have all of the other oils, so I will definitely be making this! I’m thinking you could also diffuse the essential oil blend (adjusting drops as needed for the size of the diffuser)?
Liz, the essential oils could definitely be diffused (without the ground up spices). We recommend 2-3 drops of EO for every 100 ml of water you diffuser holds 🙂
I love pumpkin! I want to try this. I need purchase a bunch of oils first!
So excited to try this!
This sounds amazing! I love anything pumpkiny
This sounds amazing. Will definitely try this one.
I’m adding the Pumpkin Pie blend to my cart right now! This body butter looks amazing.
This sounds amazing! Although I’m not sure I personally want to smell like a pumpkin pie! Haha! It might just make me hungry all day! Love it though!
Sign me up! I’m so ready for pumpkin season
This sounds delightful. Looking forward to trying it! I love that you use real spices in this recipe.
Thank you for this! Gonna try it 🙂
I think fall is my favorite time of year just for the flavors and aromas! This body butter sounds amazing I cant wait to try it. I was already planning to make a lotion/ butter with some of your pumpkin pie synergy from the fall collection. Will try it with this body butter base.
How long would this last before it expires?
Ellen, this recipe would last a year if stored properly in a cool dark place.
I can’t wait to try this. Perfect for the fall season!
This body butter sounds heavenly! Fall is in the air and I can’t wait to try out this recipe.
This looks amazing! Great recipe! Thanks for sharing!
I am so excited about using this. This makes fall so much more pumpkin like!
This sounds amazing. What purpose does the Arrowroot serve, and is there any suitable substitution? I have everything else on hand!
Vicky, the arrowroot serves as a thickener to the recipe. You could substitute that with corn starch 🙂
This sounds absolutely amazing! Need to order a pumpkin pie blend to test it out!
This sounds amazing, I can’t wait to try making it! I already have the Pumpkin Pie blend and it smells just like Punpkin Pie!
I bet this smells awesome. I’ve always wanted to try Pumpkin Pie but wasn’t sure I would find many uses for it aside from diffusion. What percentage dilution would this end up being? Just in case I would like to adjust the number of drops.
Kara, it does smell awesome! This recipe is a very low dilutuion, less than 1%
This recipe uses more actual spices than essential oils. This recipe is NOT using the pumpkin pie oil blend…just fyi.
This looks like a great recipe! And any oil could be used to customize the base. I wonder if there is a substitute for mango butter.
You could either use more Shea Butter, or you could use Cocoa Butter as an alternative. This may change the consistency of the butter a little bit
I’ve been curious, what is the purpose of the arrrowroot in lotion recipes?
Celeste, the arrowroot is used to help thicken the body butter. Corn starch would be an alternative
I don’t have Mango butter. Is it okay to substitute cocoa butter?
Edith, you could certainly substitute with cocoa butter, or even use more shea butter for the mango butter portion, but it may change the consistency of the butter.
This sounds great! I’m curious: what is the purpose of the arrowroot powder?
The arrowroot powder thickens the recipe. It’s similar to how corn starch would be used
I was under the impression pumpkin pie wasn’t to be used topically?
Faith, you are correct. The actual pre-made Pumpkin Pie blend that we have, is not to be used topically. However, this recipe calls for a few spices (ground cinnamon, nutmeg and clovebud) rather than the oils, so it is safe to be applied topically if following the recipe.
Where does it say that the Pumpkin Pie blend shouldn’t be used topically. Is that just neat or even when diluted with body butters or soaps?
It’s actually not labeled as “no topical application” and that is something I will bring forward to be updated. The Pumpkin Pie blend is not to be used topically, even if diluted with something else.
What does the arrowroot powder do in this? I’m guessing it kind of “stabilizes” the mixture?
Bethany, the arrowroot powder is used as a thickener, and can be substituted with corn starch.
It can help decrease the oilyness of a body butter
This sounds so yummy!! Of course I only have 2 out of the five ingredients… I’ll have to improvise 🙂
The pumpkin pie Body Butter sounds amazing I can’t wait to order my pumpkin pie synergy!
