DIY Beauty Series - #3 - DIY Coffee Scrub


Part 3 of my DIY Beauty Series today's recipe is for a amazing body scrub!

DIY Coffee Body Scrub


  • 1 cup Ground Coffee
  • 1/3 cup(approx) Carrier Oil - I like Organic Coconut oil, but you could use Sweet Almond Oil or Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Salt Flakes
  • 8 drops of Pure Essential Oil - today I am using Peppermint Oil, but you can use any you like


Place Coffee, Salt and Essential Oil in a bowl and mix. Slowly pour in the oil, stirring continuously until it reaches the consistency of wet sand.

Place scrub in a glass jar to keep it nice and fresh. Because it is a fresh product, you should aim to use it up within 3 months. 

To Use

Moisten skin, grab a small handful of the scrub and work in circular motions all over the body. You can even use it on your face, but make sure to be extra gentle when scrubbing your face! You can leave the scrub to dry for 5-10 minutes, or rinse off straight away. You will be left with beautifully soft & mositurised skin. 

Use 2-3 times a week or as needed!
