Upcycled Coffee Grounds: DIY Coffee Scrub

Upcycled Coffee Grounds: DIY Coffee Scrub

Scrub-a-dub-dub, smell like coffee while in your tub!

Who doesn’t love freshly exfoliated skin? Or maybe you’re just bored and want an excuse to smell like coffee all day long? Either way, here’s our simple recipe for a DIY homemade coffee scrub using your leftover grounds and all natural ingredients:

What You’ll Need:
– 1/2 cup Used Just Coffee Co-op organic coffee grounds
– 1/2 cup Sea salt (or organic cane sugar)
– 1/4 to 1/2 cup Organic coconut oil (unrefined preferred)
– Jar with tight lid

Directions:
– Melt the coconut oil and allow to cool to room temp, but not solidify
– Mix in the coffee grounds and salt
– Store in a sealed jar

How To Use:
– Scoop a small handful of mix and while in the shower scrub in circular motion
– Rinse in warm water
[Avoid using on face as the grounds may be too abrasive for sensitive skin]

Claimed Benefits of Coffee:
– Coffee is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties – which is all great for your skin
– Caffeine in coffee can help draw excess moisture from the skin, making the surface of skin feel smooth and firm
– Ground coffee is a great exfoliant. Massaging your skin with a coffee scrub helps slough off dead skin cells – nobody wants dead skin cells hanging around

Go ahead, get your scrub on.
