Coconut Coffee Scrub

You may be familiar with one of the several popular brands that have been boasting body scrubs with coffee as their star ingredient. You can create an excellent homemade scrub with the same smoothing and toning powers as those fancy-pants ones. It’s so easy, and the ingredients are au natural!

What you’ll need:

  • One clean glass jar (or another container with a lid)
  • Two tablespoons of white sugar (granulated, not powdered. You could also use brown sugar, but it tends to clump more than white sugar.)
  • Two tablespoons of honey
  • One-fourth of a cup of coconut oil
  • One-fourth of a cup of coffee grounds

How to do it:

Step One

Measure out your ingredients using run-of-the-mill kitchen measuring spoons.

Step Two

Mix all of your ingredients together in a bowl. The coconut oil may be a bit chunky, so make sure to blend that in extra well.

Step Three

Look at that! You’ve finished your scrub, and it is now ready for containment. I like to use Mason jars to house my scrubs, but anything will work as long as it is clean and has a lid.

I keep my coconut coffee scrub in the shower—I just turn the faucet off for a couple minutes, scrub some of this stuff around, then rinse!
