All coffee addicts raise a hand.
I am afraid this post is not on coffee per se, but instead on how you may reuse those coffee grounds rather than throwing them straight down the bin.
Personally, I love these lists like “38 ways to use coconut oil” etc. This is a combination of two such lists – a way to use coconut oil and coffee grounds to make…
A coffee-coconut body scrub!
Mmm, I made this the other day and as the coffee lover I am thought it was a heavenly way to shower.
The recipe is super basic, one simply needs:
- 2 parts coffee grounds
- 1 part coconut oil
And then you just blend the two together using a spoon. (For my fellow Swedes: it feels a little like making chokladbollar!)
You could opt the coconut oil with olive oil = a looser scrub, that is also easier to blend.
Make sure to wash all the coffee grounds off your body after use, but leave the coconut oil be – it works as a moisturizer.
(If this was a TV-shop infomercial I’d be like “The coffee scrub TM – saving you time AND money! ;)”)
Oh and PS: Do not use the scrub too late at night if you are caffeine-sensitive or there might not be too much sleep that night.
