If you’re looking for a great coffee body scrub, you certainly can’t go wrong with one of the high-quality options from Callyssee Cosmetics. Give their Buffing Beans Coffee Scrub a go. But if you ever want to switch it up a little—or are simply feeling crafty— we’ll teach you how to make your own home made coffee body scrub!
Here are some things to keep in mind as you set about making your own home made coffee body scrub:
#1 Choose High-Quality Coffee
You might think that any old coffee will work for your coffee scrub, but for the best results, it’s a good idea to choose some high-quality organic beans. Also, I’d suggest starting with whole beans and grinding them yourself. That way, you have more control over the consistency and texture of the ground that will make up your scrub.
#2 Add in Some Sugar
Just as in your morning cup of coffee, sugar and coffee just go great together. The finer grains of sugar pair nicely with the coffee grounds to offer two different textures of exfoliators together in one scrub.
#3 Pick a Nourishing Binder
When it comes to the liquid that holds it all together, coconut oil is an excellent choice. It is one of the most nourishing, moisturizing oils around, so it complements the exfoliating agents of the scrub quite nicely.
#4 Make It Smell Great
Really all that’s left is to choose some ingredients that complement the lovely aroma of the coffee and give it an overall pleasing scent as you apply it to your body. Cinnamon is a popular choice, as is vanilla, cocoa and other sweeter aromas that pair well with coffee.
#5 Mix It All Together
Now just mix equal parts of the sugar and coffee together, add about half as much oil, a few dashes of the aroma of your choice, and your scrub is ready!
