Wake up with a Coffee Scrub!


Mix up your morning routine with this coffee scrub.  
It's refreshing and invigorating.

Coffee Scrub Recipe

1/2 pint Mason or other jar
1/2 cup coconut or other vegetable oil
1/2 cup used and/or fresh coffee grounds
A few drops of your favorite essential oil


In a 1/2 pint jar, I mix together 1/2 cup of coconut oil (melted) and 1/2 cup of used coffee grounds.  I add a few drops of Whisper or Peppermint Essential oil.  As it cools it will harden back up, so you can press it into muffin tins and save them for use another time.  I just leave the jar in the shower.  


When you are ready to use it, just scoop out a little bit and scrub in circular motions from the tips of your toes and fingers toward your torso.  Work on one limb at a time too, using about a tablespoon per leg.  Then do your arms and don't forget to scrub the backs of your arms and those hard to reach places.  The shower will rinse away the grounds as you go so there's no need to worry about the drain.   

Its, just that easy.  So, what are you waiting for.
