I am a true, passionate, habitual coffee drinker. I mean, I’m pretty sure I’m the very reason they made coffee in the first place. I definitely survive off of at least one if not two coffee cups a day. Once I had my daughter I started drinking it sporadically here and there, then, I had my son. It got bumped to three cups a day real fast. I realized my addiction was on the verge of sending me into AA meetings with all the other coffee addicts so I chilled it down… a bit. My Keurig has quickly become my best friend and the one I can truly rely on to make me coffee each morning. That’s great and all but what do I do now with all of my leftover coffee grounds from pre-Keurig days? You make a coffee scrub, that’s what you do. You definitely can’t just throw coffee away because that would be a complete crying shame folks. So, without further adieu, I give you the recipe…
- 1/4 Olive Oil
- 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
- 3 Tablespoons Coffee Grounds
- 1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- Mix ingredients together
- Distribute into small canisters
- To use, dampen skin and thoroughly scrub onto skin. Rinse and pat dry.
- (Makes approximately 3/4 cup body scrub.)
Your bathroom, actually your whole home will smell fabulous after you use this! You’ll also love all the benefits that come from using the coffee body scrub…
- Act as an exfoliator for dry skin,
- Minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and cellulite
- Can actually help to rid puffy eyes.
Let me know what benefit of the coffee scrub you find most relevant for you! I know I found it helped to soften my hands and great to use on the tush before putting on the bathing suit bottom. Who doesn’t like for that to look it’s best?!
