I have been obsessed with Homemade Body Scrub recipes lately. I decided to whip up a Coffee Sugar scrub recipe of my own this morning. It is so easy and very inexpensive. If you have priced coffee scrubs…WOWZA! This homemade version is super frugal compared to those you will find on the market. Of course, the cost will depend on the price of the products you choose. I would say that my cost was around $2 a jar give or take.
The logic behind coffee scrubs is that they not only exfoliate, but also the caffeine in the coffee helps diminish the appearance of cellulite…hmmm…we shall see about that….not that I have cellulite. You should know I am flawlessly perfect. 🙂 The coconut oil is said to hydrate.
What You Need:
1 Cup of Coffee Grounds (Grinds)
1 Cup of Raw Sugar
1/2 Cup of Coconut Oil
I read a lot of recipes for coffee scrubs and some of them were quite fancy. I looked at all the possible ingredients and decided I really wanted a basic, stripped down recipe. I chose to use sugar, but some recipes called for salt. I also used coconut oil even though you could use olive oil or another oil if you prefer.
Combine ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Then fill your container(s). Easy peasy.
I think the scrub has a great texture. It isn’t too “wet” because of the coconut oil. I am sure the texture would be different if you substituted the oil.
I haven’t used this in the shower yet, but I did use it on my hands. Very nice.
The recipe is enough to fill 2 small jars. Great to sit by your sink.
Remember, that this recipe does contain oil so if you plan on using in the tub or shower you will want to exercise caution. I am sure if you get this on the floor of your tub or shower it will make it extra slick. Also, you may want to use a plastic container if you plan on keeping this in the tub or shower.
