Top of the morning coffee scrub

May 23, 2010

Do you have trouble waking up in the morning? I know I do.
Try this body scrub – the smell alone will give you a caffeine kick to wake you right up!

  • 3 tbs of ground coffee
  • 3 tbs coconut oil
  • 1 tbs castor oil
  • 1-3 tsp orange peel

Mix everything together. If the coconut oil is too solid, try heating it in a water bath or the microwave.
Apply all over your body, except for the face – the coffee beans are too coarse for delicate areas like the face.

You can use any coffee beans for this – even used coffee if you want to save money. For the luxury version, grind the coffee beans fresh.
The simplest thing would be to use only coffee as a scrub – some people just take the coffee in its filter and use the coffee straight from there. But I love the combination of the coffee with the orange and coconut – two smells that I normally don’t care much for 🙂
