If there’s ever a DIY self-care product that has made me want to stay in the shower all day, this Coffee Coconut Body Scrub is it! Coffee works as an exfoliant and helps to increase blood flow, while coconut oil nourishes and moisturizes.
- 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar (I used this one by Navitas Organics)
- 1/2 cup coffee grounds
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil*
- 1 vanilla bean, scraped
- Stir everything together in a bowl until well combined.
- Transfer to glass jars or other air-tight containers
Note: Coconut oil is comedogenic, which means that if your skin is prone to blackheads and/or acne, it could cause you to break out. Have no fear – you can easily swap the coconut oil in this recipe for almond, jojoba or extra virgin olive oil. It won’t have a coconut scent to it, but you could definitely add coconut extract or an essential oil of your choice that pairs well with coffee.
