Let's dive in and check out how to make this coffee and coconut body scrub recipe!
DIY Coffee and Coconut Body Scrub Recipe
- 3/4 cup coarsely ground coffee
- 1 1/2 cups Epsom salts
- 3/4 cup unrefined coconut oil (has a much stronger, yummier scent than refined coconut oil which often times doesn't have much of a smell!)
- 1 tsp favorite essential oil or vanilla extract
- In a medium size bowl, mix all ingredients together.
- You can play around with the coffee/Epsom salt ratio if you'd like a stronger coffee smell!
- Store in an airtight jar or container for up to 6 months. You can also keep it in the fridge (especially in the summer) for a much needed cooling effect.
- Scrub onto wet skin in slow, circular motions 2-3 times a week to slough off dead skin cells and reveal soft, glowing skin!
The scent of the coconut and coffee will awaken all of your senses and it will feel like a really indulgent, expensive scrub! This is also great as a gift as long as you package it in a nice jar!
Note: Do not use this scrub on your face as the Epsom salts are only for the body.
