I love coffee. I love coconut oil. And I love sugar (not gonna lie). Put them all together, and what do you get? MAGIC. Coco Cafe Sugar Scrub Magic. This amazing face and body scrub smells fantastic and will leave your skin feeling super soft. The caffeine also rejuvenates tired skin and makes you look awake and fresh! Get creative with adding essential oils or spices to add scent.
Coffee Sugar Scrub
- 1 Cup Ground Organic Coffee
- 1 Cup Organic Sugar or Salt –
- 1/2 Cup Organic Coconut Oil – Spectrum, Nutiva, Trader Joes
- 1/2 Tablespoon Cinnamon (optional)
- 1 Tablespoon Vanilla (optional)
- Mixing Bowl
- Measuring cups & spoons
- Pot of hot water or double boiler
- Empty container for finished product
Make sure your coffee is finely ground. You can run it through a grinder or food processor twice to make the grinds very fine. Melt coconut oil and allow it to cool slightly but not solidify. Mix in the sugar and coffee, then add any optional ingredients you like. One of my recent favorites is adding organic cocoa and peppermint extract or essential oil for a peppermint mocha scrub!
Once all ingredients are mixed, transfer to an airtight container or mason jar. Use 1-2 times a week (or everyday if you like). The coffee and sugar will exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin and the coconut oil will leave your skin silky soft and ultra moisturized.
