Exfoliating Citrus Coffee Body Scrub

If you long for getting back into your swimsuit, here is an ideal DIY citrus coffee body scrub to make your body skin look smooth and radiant.

You will need:

(i) Coffee ground: 1 cup

(ii) Coconut oil: organic, without additives, melted.

(iii) Lemon essential oil: 1-3 drops

(iv) Orange essential oil: 1-3 drops (v) Coconut sugar: ½ cup


Mix all the ingredients in a glass bowl until everything is well combined.

How to Use it?

(i) Take the body scrub in your palm. Begin from the lower end of your body (towards your feet) and work your way up exfoliating in circular motions until you’ve reached your neck.

(ii) If you want, you can use any of the above scrubs on your face unless your skin is sensitive to any of the ingredients. Let the scrub sit for 10 minutes or longer and then rinse.

(iii) Do it once a week regularly. You will find your skin is improving in softness and may even see the scars getting diminished, if you have any.

(iv) Store the leftover in an airtight container.

Body scrubs made using coffee cab get messy in shower, as the coffee ground will scatter everywhere! So don’t be surprised and be prepared for that.
