Coffee Buzz Foot Scrub

coffee foot scrub

A fully caffeinated foot scrub that gives dry skin the boot.

Beyond its obvious energy boosting benefits, coffee has a host of other healing benefits. Did you know that coffee grinds can help alleviate¬†callused feet? It’s true! This coffee foot scrub recipe teams up ground coffee with sea salt and corn meal for a trio of exfoliants that attack dead, dry skin. The menthol in the peppermint oil has antiseptic and anti-fungal properties while the mingling aromas¬†give your spirits a buzz.

Here’s what you need:

  • 4 tablespoons ground coffee
  • 3 tablespoons coarse sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons corn meal
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 drops of peppermint oil

Here’s what you do:

Mix all the ingredients together into a paste. Massage the scrub onto feet paying close attention to heels and callused spots. Let the paste sit for 10 minutes while enjoying a cup of java and then rinse off with warm water. Finish with your favorite coffee-themed nail polish like Coffee Break from Orly.
