Author Shelly

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Coffee Ground used grounds are fine
  • 3 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil

Instructions

  • In a medium to large bowl add the sugar and coffee grounds. Stir to combine
  • In a microwave safe bowl, add the coconut oil and microwave at 30-second intervals until it is melted. This can also be done in a pan on the stovetop over medium heat.
  • Once the coconut oil is melted add it to the coffee mixture.
  • Stir well to combine. Making sure all of the sugar and coffee are coated with oil. The mixture will be lumpy, but the sugar shouldn’t be dry.
  • Add to a clean glass jar with a lid to store.
  • To use, while in the shower, scoop some of the sugar scrub into your hand and rub on the skin. Rinse off with water.
  • Use caution when using the sugar scrub in the shower as it can make the tub or shower floor slippery. Making it easier to fall in the shower or tub.

 

Try Using Flavored Coffee

I had some Starbucks caramel coffee on hand so I used it in this recipe. I also used fresh coffee since no one in our house drinks coffee. I know we are weird. I love the smell of coffee but I just can’t handle the taste. Hence, the reason why I love this sugar scrub.

When you use a flavored coffee it can add additional scent to the sugar scrub, other than the coffee and coconut oil. Making for an even better smelling coffee sugar scrub.

Tips for Making the Coffee Sugar Scrub

Mix the coffee ground with the sugar. If you are using used coffee ground let them dry before a little adding them to the sugar.

Add the melted coconut oil and mix until well combined. Make sure the coconut oil is coating both the sugar and the coffee grounds.

I found storing my sugar scrubs in a glass canning jar works well. I like to purchase the plastic lids that fit the canning jar. But if you are using the two piece lids with the canning jars, you can insert a tag to dress them up a bit.
