How I found out that this really works!


I originally made this scrub to use in the shower. Once I made it I put it aside and then went out into my garden. After a bit of weed pulling I came in with dirty hands as usual but instead of using the harsh soap I normally use to clean my hands I used this coconut and coffee ground scrub and the results were wonderful.


  • The grittiness of the coffee grounds gets rid of dirt and the coconut oil washes it all away so you’re left with soft and smooth hands.
  • Used repeatedly your hands will be softer and more supple.
  • You can also gently rub this into your cuticles to help keep them tamed.

Coffee Body Scrub Ingredients:


  • Coffee Grounds – approximately 1/4 cup but you can use more if desired.
  • I saved coffee grounds from my morning coffee for a few days placing them in a container and stirring several times a day to encourage drying. It is important that you not place a lid on the coffee grounds while they are drying. We want the grounds to be as dry as possible. As an alternative you can also use fresh grounds and avoid the wait!

Now that you have your ingredients it’s time to go through the final process of putting this all together and my best tips for use.

Add the coffee grounds to the coconut oil and stir well.

Set aside, stirring as it hardens for an even mix of coconut and coffee grounds, and allow to firm up. The length of time it takes to firm up depends on the temperature. If it’s warm (over 70° F) place it in the refrigerator to solidify. If it’s below 70°F it may take several hours for the product to become firm.


Storage


  • It’s easy to scoop out and it stays fresher longer.
  • Store in a cool place or refrigerate.

Next, we’ll talk about shower use and SAFETY!


I make a double batch – one for in the shower and one to keep in the laundry room for after gardening clean up.

  • Rub over entire body {not your face} in a circular motion toward your heart which is best for circulation and your lymphatic system.
  • Pay close attention to elbows and knees.

***If you use this in the shower please be careful and use caution. Coconut Oil is VERY slippery so stand on a bath mat, towel or other NON-SLIPPERY surface while using and rinse your shower/bathtub well after use.
