I love this coffee body scrub! The coffee aroma wakes me up in the A.M. and my skin feels great too!
2 cups of coffee grounds
1/2 cup sea salt
2/3 tablespoon of massage oil (Any plain, cheap massage oil will do). I used Almond body oil.
Thanks Danielle for sharing this with us!
Coffee body scrub has originally gained fame as a cellulite natural remedy. There is a supposed connection between caffeine and cellulite in that caffeine is able to pull out the fluid that is found between fat cells. By doing so, it decreases the appearance of the dimpled skin leaving it even and smooth.
This is only one variation of the coffee scrub recipe. You can add olive oil to it, egg or only egg white, crack open a Vitamin E pill, or even add oatmeal, sea salt and brown sugar.
Add a few drops of eucalyptus or peppermint oil for that extra energy boost in the morning. Possibilities are endless with this recipe and you can find the one that fits you the best.
