While this is a delicious smelling body scrub that would make an awesome handmade gift for any time of year, Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Not only will any coffee lover be enamored with the smell of this sugar scrub, caffeine is also shown to have great results when applied to your skin. This scrub comes together in just minutes.
- 1 cup coconut oil
- ¾ cup fresh coffee grinds (not used and not instant)
- ¾ cup evaporated cane juice (or other coarse sugar)
- 3-4 droppers (about 3/4 tsp – 1 tsp) full vanilla essential oil in jojoba
Mix all ingredients together until well combined. Use as a body scrub in the shower. It’s that simple!
I found the built in dropper in the vanilla oil to be hard to use to I removed it and use the dropper shown in the below pic. The recipe uses 3-4 droppers full which is 3/4 tsp – 1 tsp.
