Good Morning Makers! So have you been looking for a deliciously nourishing homemade body scrub? If so, then my coconut-coffee scrub will leave your skin feeling soft, supple and smelling amazing!
I’m not sure about you, but as soon as the weather starts to turn cooler, something almost instantly happens to my skin….I start to resemble a crocodile….yep I’ve caught a glimpse of my bare legs at work and they are getting dry…. So in an effort to keep that eternal summer suppleness and soft dewy skin I went about creating my own body scrub which not only buffs away the dry patches but also leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and moisturised!
Here’s what you’ll need…. In a bowl, mix together the following ingredients;
- 2 tablespoons ground organic coffee (buy this from health food stores, or you can find the macro brand from woolies)
- 2 tablespoons sugar (either white table sugar, brown sugar or raw sugar if you prefer a courser scrub)
- Enough melted coconut oil to make the mixture into a thick paste!
Note: If you’re not a huge fan of coconut oil, you could use an alternative carrier oil like sweet almond oil or jojoba oil.
Once you’ve combined all the ingredients (at this point if you’re a coffee fan, you’ll be thinking this smells AMAZING!) hop into the shower and wet your hands slightly and begin to scrub your entire body in a circular motion, starting with your feet and ankles and working your way up to your neck.
Be sure to be gentle around sensitive areas, and if you choose to give your face a little exfoliation just go lightly! The action of scrubbing and massaging your body is brilliant for your circulation, your energy levels and helps move some of that stuck energy or juju around the body!
Once you’ve scrubbed your entire body, turn on the shower and wash away all the residue. You’ll emerge from the shower absolutely glowing, feeling invigorated and with skin as soft as a baby! Enjoy my lovelies, a delicious organic, natural alternative to all those yucky chemical filled body scrubs out there!
