For all my coffee lovers out there, I have a special sugar scrub just for you. All you will need is some sugar, coconut oil, coffee grounds, and almond essential oil.
Coffee is full of awesome benefits for your body and soul. It is said to fight cellulite, stretch marks, and depression, and also to improve circulation. Even if all that turned out to be just wishful thinking, it exfoliates your skin and it smells down-right delicious. The measurements and directions for this heavenly sugar scrub are below.
1/4 cup dry coffee grounds
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup pure cane sugar
3-4 drops of almond essential oil
Mix softened coconut oil with coffee grounds and sugar in a mixing bowl. Room temperature coconut oil will work fine, but if it’s too firm, you can stick it into the microwave for 15 seconds to soften it up. Add 3 drops of almond essential oil. Mix well and it’s ready to use!
These measurements are approximate based on the texture you wish to achieve. I always end up adding a tad bit more sugar or coffee grounds because I prefer a coarse scrub.
Always use caution when showering or bathing with any kind of oil (such as the coconut oil used in this recipe).
