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.
