This natural homemade body scrub will leave your skin feeling soft and your pocket full of change!
After learning that micro-beads in many commercial scrubs are in fact plastic, and sadly harming the environment, I’d been looking around for a natural deep-exfoliating body scrub and this coffee scrub ticks all the right boxes. Here’s how you make it, with simple kitchen cupboard ingredients…
DIY Coffee Body Scrub
1 cup ground coffee
1/3 cup coarse brown sugar
2 tbsp oil of your choice
A jar for storage
- Put the coffee and brown sugar the jar you’ll be keeping the mixture in, close the lid and shake well.
- Add a tablespoon of an oil of your choice (I had sandalwood laying around, but you can equally use coconut, nut or olive oil) and shake well again.
- Add remaining oil and mix around with a spoon before shaking once more.
When using the scrub in the shower, I’ve found it useful to wash off the granules afterwards and then soap up to remove any remaining oil left on your skin, to keep it soft, clear and smelling wonderful.
