I just made the easiest body scrub (also so inexpensive) and it feels wonderful. Use it in the morning to wake-up and moisturize in the shower.
2 cups of coffee grounds (fresh or used grounds – I used fresh and ground for drip coffee)
3/4 cup of raw sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 TBSP of cinnamon
2 TBSPs of sea salt
3/4 cup of oil (I mixed 1/2 cup of olive oil and 1/4 cup of castor oil)
1 TBSP of Jojoba Oil
1 TBSP of vanilla
2 TBSPs of honey
The smell is so delicious but the effect on the skin is heaven – dead skin is sloughed off and left felt feeling soft. I used it on my face and it certainly exfoliated (gentle upwards circular rubbing motions) making my skin look very clean and winter proof. I am addicted. I mixed all the ingredients together and placed the contents in a recycled glass jar. There are plenty of variations you could create with this mixture. Try adding different spices for different smells or less oil. If you don’t like coffee you can just use raw sugar and sea salt. Plenty of options. Have fun and let me know what you create.
