If you know me, you know I love coffee! The taste, the smell, the everything! I have tried and loved coffee scrubs in the past, but find they can sometimes be pricey. My sister makes tons of her own beauty products – she inspired me to give this a whirl! And I was shocked and thrilled to find it SO simple!
Just a few ingredients and you have a body or facial scrub that will wake you up and leave your skin feeling smooth and nourished!
You can use fresh ground coffee OR even the leftover grounds from your morning cup! Allow the used grounds to dry out completely before using. I left mine on paper towel on the counter for 48 hours. *Note: the coffee smell is much stronger with fresh grounds!
1/2 cup ground coffee
1/2 cup coarse cane sugar
4-6 tbs oil of your choice. (I used 1/2 Olive and 1/2 Jojoba)
10-12 drop essential oil of your choice (I used Lavender*)
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Store in an air tight container.
- Use on damp skin 1-2 times per week.
*Lavender Oil is an antibacterial. I have acne prone skin so love to use this oil for that reason!
