Brown sugar and coffee unite for a jacked-up body experience.
Wooo-doggy! This is one tasty, energizing body scrub! With ground coffee beans to exfoliate dead skin, rich oils like jojoba and almond to moisturize, and hints of orange and cinnamon to invigorate your senses, you’ll love what this does for your skin and your mood. And check this out: caffeine stimulates cellular circulation which is said to help fight cellulite (Bonus!). Opt for organic ingredients if your pocketbook doesn’t mind.
Here’s what you need:
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon freshly ground coffee beans
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped hazelnuts
- 2 teaspoons almond oil
- 2 teaspoons jojoba oil
- 2 teaspoons soy oil (or olive oil)
- 8 drops of orange essential oil
- teensy dash of cinnamon
Here’s what you do:
Dump ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly. In the shower, gently massage the scrub in circular motions all over your body avoiding the neck and face area. Pack remainder into a glass jar and store in the refrigerator. And because we all have different coffee palates, try adding a few drops of fragranced oils like mint, chocolate, vanilla or caramel to your taste.
