Coffee scrubs. An aromatic way to give your body some well-deserved TLC, made from things you probably have laying around in your cupboards. …..Do people still use the word cupboard?? idk.
The star of this post is my younger, more creative sister…she found a rough recipe for a coffee scrub & made it her own. It’s a bit messy, but definitely worth the extra few minutes (if that) of clean up!
Here is what you’ll need:
- as much coffee as you want/have
- a teaspoon of vanilla
- 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil
- a container for your scrub
Transfer the coffee to your container of choice. Then pour in the coconut oil/vanilla mixture.
Stir the scrub until all of the coffee looks wet. If you didn’t use enough oil, bows the time to add however much more you need. (We decided to add a capful of olive oil because it was easier than melting more coconut oil..)
I’d say the best place to use this is the shower, once or twice a week when you feel like starting fresh. It will get all over the shower walls but a few splashes of water will make everything clean again. My dad (who’s a plumber) doesn’t get mad when my sister & I use this scrub so it must be ok for the drain….if it wasn’t we would definitely hear about its clogging effects..
This coffee scrub will leave your skin soft & smooth. You can even skip the step of putting on lotion because the coconut oil will take care of that for you!
So wake up & scrub with coffee!!! I hope you & your skin enjoy this caffeinated exfoliating mix!
~peace & all good~
