Coffee Sugar Scrub
This is a simple recipe that makes a perfect gift or can be used to treat yourself. Coffee acts as an antioxidant for your skin. When combined with the sugar and coconut oil, this will gently exfoliate your skin while washing away toxins and impurities. You can use it on your face, hands, and body. Try to store it in a cool place as the scrub goes on better when the coconut oil is solid.
½ cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons ground coffee *
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon peppermint oil
1 airtight jar
*Used or fresh coffee grounds, whatever you prefer.
Combine all ingredients in jar and stir well.
Oil may separate so make sure to stir it as needed for each use.
Take a small amount and rub it on skin in a circular motion. Rinse off well. Then wipe skin dry with a cotton ball or dry cloth.
