DIY body scrubs are not only so easy to make but just as good if not better than a pricey scrub at any beauty supply! My DIY Cinnamon Coffee Body Scrub smells delicious and they make the cutest gifts.
Think Valentine’s Day, these would make a great gift for your mom, sister or your girlfriends. They will love it!
Today I have an amazing DIY Cinnamon Coffee Body Scrub recipe for you guys. You all know how I love my coffee, well it’s not just for drinking at my house. The mixture of coffee and cinnamon is a great combo, it smells heavenly.
Coffee and coconut oil (my new found love) are rich in antioxidants which are good for your skin.
I have read that when you use coffee on your skin it is supposed to reduce the appearance of cellulite and tighten the skin. Now do not quote me on the cellulite part but the firmer skin I have noticed in my problem areas.
The cinnamon is a good energy booster for me, it leaves me feeling refreshed and charged for the day.
DIY Cinnamon Coffee Body Scrub
- ¼ C. coconut oil
- ¼ C. coffee ground (used or fresh, either work just the same)
- 1 tbs. Ground cinnamon
- ¼ C. sugar
- mason jars
#1. Combine the coffee, cinnamon, sugar and coconut oil, mixing well.
#2. Scoop the mixture into your mason jars and seal.
#3. To use – apply a generous amount of the scrub on wet skin in the tub or shower. Massage in circles and rinse with warm water.
This makes an approximately ¾ cup of scrub and will fill 2 4 oz mason jars or 1 8 oz mason jar.
The DIY Cinnamon Coffee Body Scrub will be good for 6 months. If you see the contents separating, simply stir and use as usual.
