A homemade body scrub that comes together in minutes – it smells amazing and makes a great DIY present!
But even though this DIY coffee body scrub is not something I would keep in the pantry, it’s definitely something I would buy. Plus all the ingredients come from my pantry, so I figure it counts as part of the homemade challenge.
I first made this at Christmas for our mums. It smelt and looked SO good that I had to make a jar for myself. I also made little labels for the jars to add to the cute factor. I can’t help it!
I found the recipe here and just adjusted it slightly. I used coconut oil instead of olive oil and added a little vanilla extract because it smells good!
It seriously takes 5 minutes, you can put it in any jar and it is a FABULOUS body scrub. It does leave coffee grounds all through the bottom of your shower, but it’s a small price to pay for a delicious smelling & totally invigorating time!
If you’re making this as a gift I would strongly suggest doubling the recipe and keeping a jar for yourself…I promise, you won’t be able to part with this!
- 1/2 cup ground coffee (I used plunger grind right out of the packet)
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 TBSP melted coconut oil
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Measure all ingredients into a bowl. Mix together until incorporated. Spoon into a jar and use ALLLL over your body for an invigorating body scrub!
