DIY: 2 ingredient body scrub

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.
IMG_2144Make 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.

  1. Svar: Åhh jag älskar Landet innanför! Det finns fem stycken (Glaspärleresan, Mahognyögat, Kopparnyckeln, Kristallballongen & Fågelhjärtat) och jag läste alla direkt när jag kom till Sverige för det var dom böckerna jag hade hemma som jag orkade läsa. Typ ALLA bibliotek har dem då de klassas som typ ungdomsklassiker eller något sådant har jag för mej. De och Harry Potter. Har du använt Storytel länge? Är det något att rekommendera, liksom är det värt pengarna? Är sugen på att testa men finns ju så många olika tjänster och jag gillar inte att ge ut mitt kontonummer när de inte behöver det eftersom de säger att man får prova gratis i 14 dagar haha… Kram!
