DIY Coffee Body Scrub

I absolutely love drinking coffee in the morning so I have decided to make a body scrub using coffee grounds. This is a great way to use leftover coffee grounds instead of just throwing them away. This is a really simple body scrub that only uses two ingredients, olive oil and coffee grounds. The olive oil is very moisturizing and coffee is known for its firming effects when applied to the skin. This scrub is very exfoliating without being overly harsh. It also smells great! All you have to do is mix about half a cup of used coffee coffee grounds with a quarter to half a cup of olive oil.  There's no need for exact measurements so feel free to add as much or as little as you would like of the olive oil and coffee grounds. That's all there is to it! You can also add sugar or salt if you want more exfoliation. I have also heard of using cinnamon, vanilla extract, or peppermint extract to make it smell even more amazing. I love trying out diy beauty ideas so please leave your suggestions below! By the way what is your favorite body scrub recipe?

See you soon, LittleMissFangirly

  1. I would have never thought of reusing coffee grounds... You seem to be very insightful and resourceful what about using different products like Vegemite ? Any other unique ingredients I can use?
