This homemade orange coffee scrub will wake up ALL of your senses and leave your skin feeling silky smooth! I discovered this recipe when I accidentally poured in orange essential oil instead of hazelnut oil, and the result was AMAZING! I don't know why, but the mixture of coffee and orange elicited memories of the best mornings ever, and thus, was the most energizing scrub I've ever used! If you're looking for an awesome morning pick-me-up, this orange coffee scrub will do just that!
Orange Coffee Scrub
- 1 cup used coffee grounds (recycling FTW!)
- 1/2 cup organic, cold pressed coconut oil
- 2 tbsp dried orange powder
- 15 drops orange essential oil
- In a medium size bowl, mix all ingredients together.
- Scoop into a clean jar.
- Add more or less of the orange essential oil to your preference!
Using the Orange Coffee Scrub:
To use the orange coffee scrub, simply rub onto wet skin (while in the shower), in slow circular motions. Concentrate on particularly rough areas such as knees, elbows, and feet. Rinse off and pat dry. Can be used two to three times a week or as needed.
The invigorating scent of coffee mixed with orange will wake up all of your senses, all the while sloughing off dead skin cells and reveling beautifully smooth skin. The coconut oil acts as deep moisturizer, leaving your skin soft and hydrated all week long!
