DIY Coconut Coffee Body Scrub
This crazy simple recipe requires only two ingredients: coffee grounds and coconut oil. Just scoop the grounds out of your coffee maker after your morning cup and mix with coconut oil. You can do your own thing, like I did, or follow this “recipe” from Pure Ella. She also gives a lot more information about this scrub and what makes it work. :)
1/4 cup coffee grounds
1/2-1 cup coconut oil
Melt the coconut oil to help with the mixing process, and stir occasionally as it cools so the grounds don’t settle to the bottom. Store in a jar, and use a scoop to remove your scrub to keep things sanitary (does anyone else hate that word??).
To use, scoop out some product and scrub in circular motions. Give extra attention to dry or cellulite-prone areas. Rinse well.
Be sure to use generous amounts or to use this scrub frequently… since it doesn’t contain any kind of preservatives, it can quickly transform itself into it’s own science experiment (if ya know what I mean). Just a tip.
What do you think? Will you try it out? What is your favorite body scrub??
