Does anyone have any good suggestions for a pumpkin scrub for the fall? Also, what is the best type of oil to use for homemade scrubs and any place to order a large quantity of it. (if not veg or olive)

I have something called "harvest pumpkin scrub:
4 Tbsp. pumpkin puree
1 Tbsp. honey
4 tsp. Cornmeal
2 tsp. aloe vera gel
2 tsp. pineapple, diced
1 tsp. green tea
1/2 tsp. sunflower oil
6 drops frankincense essential oil (optional)
4 drops cinnamon extract (optional)
Steep green tea in boiling water. Set aside to cool. In blender or food processor puree pineapple and place in medium-sized mixing bowl. Add pumpkin, honey and aloe. Mix well. Stir in sunflower oil, green tea and cornmeal. Discard the remaining green tea. Add frankincense and cinnamon. Stir. Apply small amount of pumpkin mask to cheeks, forehead, chin and neck. Massage in circular motions gently buffing skin. Repeat. Apply more product as needed. Leave a thin layer of pumpkin mask on face and neck for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with tepid or cool water and pat dry with soft towel. Follow with appropriate moisturizer. Store remaining mask covered in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Benefits: Pumpkin enzymes dissolve dead skin cells while the cornmeal sweeps them clean. Honey has antimicrobial properties as well as moisturizes and softens. The result is a beautiful glowing complexion. Use this mask as often as you like.
Here's the other one:
Make a pumpkin papaya face mask by mashing pumpkin pulp with fresh papaya, honey and egg whites. This mask contains natural enzymes to remove the top layer of dead skin and moisturizers to maintain a healthy balance. Try to make a habit of using the mask once a week.
