Coffee and Coconut Sugar Body Scrub

This morning’s coffee grounds are now the star ingredient in tonight’s body scrub.
To me, a good body scrub is a beauty necessity…it’s a must, and considering how easy it is to DIY your own version, there’s really no excuse not to always have a good body scrub on hand. This one features coconut sugar, coconut oil, and coffee grounds…simple.

After your morning coffee, spread your used coffee grounds evenly on a plate to let them dry out. I placed mine next to my kitchen window so that the sun can help me out a bit. Revisit the coffee grounds 4-6 hours later and they should be dry.

Coconut Sugar and Coffee Body Scrub
Makes enough for 1 use

1/4 cup of coffee grounds, dried
1/3 cup of coconut sugar
1 ½ tbsp. of melted coconut oil (I like a grainy body scrub, but if you like a more liquidy scrub, add 1/4 cup of coconut oil)

Mix the coffee grounds with the coconut sugar and melted coconut oil. Place the mixture in a container until ready for use.
