Did you know that some of the essentials you have in your kitchen may serve as amazing beauty products ? Let’s take coffee for example. I am not a coffee drinker, so I will not be preaching wether it’s good or bad for you. The only thing I know in my experience with coffee is it’s amazing for your skin. I use it as a natural exfoliator for my whole body two times a week. I noticed a dramatic change in my skin tone. It Defiantly feels much more smooth.
Most store bought exfoliation products remove skin cells with enzymes or acidic ingredients. Exfoliating with coffee grounds improves circulation, leaving you with smooth, glowing skin.
I love making DIY from ingredients I already have in my kitchen. I save money, time and of course my heath.
I used three amazing essential oils for the skin in this recipe; Geranium, Myrrh and Cinnamon. Read About their benefits for the skin here.

How to make smoothing body coffee scrub
- 2 tablespoon ground coffee
- 1 tablespoon organic sugar
- 3 tablespoons organic coconut oil
- 2 drops myrrh essential oil
- 2 drops geranium essential oil
- 1 drop cinnamon essential oil ( optional )
In a bowl combine all the ingredients together and store in a mason jar. I usually store my DIY products in the fridge to preserve their freshness. I also make small portions.
Note: This scrub is great for the face too. It’s messy in the shower, but it gets you the most smooth and glowing skin.
