Body Scrub: Coffee Crush

IMG_8010

My wonderful girlfriend is in charge of today’s post and has something to share!

You don’t have to spend loads on beauty products! The very best products can be made with just a few natural ingredients. Have you looked at one of your bottles or tubes lately and seen how they are trying to fit in as many natural ingredients as possible with all the essential oils and what not? Well, why not just use those natural ingredients and leave out all the chemicals? That’s what we are gonna do today! And on top of that, we’re reusing. It doesn’t get more politically correct than that.

Not only is this a great exfoliant, it is also a great morning pick-me-up and the best way to recycle your coffee grounds! Brighten your Monday whilst brightening your skin and leave it smelling b-e-a-utiful! – Rhianwen Charlton

After having your cup of coffee this morning, save your coffee grounds instead of throwing them out. You can use the leftovers from a coffee pad, from a coffee filter, your shot of espresso or whatever else you may be using.

  • 2 deciliter coffee grounds
  • 3 tablespoons coarse salt
  • 3 tablespoons raw cane sugar
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin coconut or olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint oil

The Directions
