DIY: Coffee Body Scrub

Coffee is a crucial part of my day. I drink a cup a day to help reduce headaches and migraines. Before I introduced coffee into my daily routine, I was getting headaches several times a week. Since coffee, they have been reduced to only a few times a month. If I skip coffee in the morning it almost guaranteed that I will have a headache in the afternoon.

Beyond controlling my headaches coffee has many other health benefits particularly for the skin.

Coffee is a great source of antioxidants. It enhances blood circulation and reduces puffy yes. It’s also a great exfoliater leaving the skin smooth and bright. Which is why I decided to make a homemade coffee body scrub.

Ingredients: 

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp coffee grounds (I used fresh coffee grounds)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

  • Add all ingredients to a bowl, and mix thoroughly. It will take a few minutes.
  • Store in an airtight container.
  • In the shower, use as a scrub then wash off.

 

Here are two other homemade body scrubs that I have tried. Lemon and Coconut Oil Body Scrub & Brown Sugar and Coconut Oil Body Scrub!
