Coffee Sugar Scrub DIY

If you know me, then you know I love coffee. I love everything to do with coffee. The smell, the taste, the action of drinking it. It’s pure heaven….Mmm…coffee…

Pardon me, I was having a moment. So yeah, I love coffee! Over the holidays, I was surfing Pinterest (as many do) for some pinspiration and discovered several recipes for DIY coffee sugar scrub. “Hey! I can make that!” I said to myself. Because I talk to myself. It’s cool, I’m not crazy…Anywho, I thought I would share how I did it!

Here’s what you need:

  • 3 parts used coffee grounds (upcycling, baby!)
  • 2 parts sugar (you can use white, brown, whatever floats your boat)
  • 1 parts oil (I prefer coconut, but you can use whichever)
  • Any add-ins/flavors. I’ve done vanilla and pumpkin spice in the past. For this batch, I used dark chocolate cocoa powder. Smelled amaze-balls, y’all.

Here’s what you do:

Step 1: Mix 3 parts (cups, tablespoons, random spoonful) coffee grounds, 2 parts sugar, and 1 part oil in a medium bowl. Add any mix-ins, like vanilla or chocolate for scent.

Step 2: Stir.

Step 3: Test it out on your hands to make sure the proportions are right for you.

Step 4: Transfer to container of your choice! I’m a mason jar kind of girl, personally.

Step 5: Enjoy your newly exfoliated and nourished skin!
