I love this idea for using coffee in a sugar scrub recipe. It’s so easy to make only taking 3 ingredients and a few minutes. Makes my skin feel great too. Even though I don’t like coffee this sugar scrub is one I’ll be making over and over again. This is a great one to make to deal with that winter dry skin or use in the summer to smooth out those rough dry spots on the skin. The coffee and sugar make great exfoliators. Plus you can upcycle your old coffee ground into this recipe too.

Author: Shelly


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


  • 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.
