I don’t know about you, but it can be tough getting out of bed in the morning. Often during my morning showers, I am half asleep. This coffee sugar scrub recipe will transform your shower, energizing you, and making your skin look great!
What I Love About This Recipe
There are lots of sugar scrub benefits to enjoy. This homemade exfoliating body scrub helps slough off dead skin to reveal beautiful new skin underneath. Besides making your skin look great, you’ll love the smell of this scrub. The citrus + coffee smell will wake you up and promote positive feelings to get you ready for your day.
What’s in the Coffee Sugar Scrub Recipe?
Ground Coffee is used in this recipe for its stimulating and exfoliating properties. Using this scrub in the morning will help wake you up and make your skin look great.
We are also using sugar in the recipe to help exfoliate your skin. I used granulated sugar, but you can use any kind of sugar. But, keep in mind the smaller the grain of sugar the gentler the exfoliation on your skin.
Mandarin Essential Oil
Mandarin Essential Oil adds a citrus aroma to the scrub. It’s also antibacterial and energizing.* It’s also been shown to help improve the appearance of cellulite.*
Small Sealable Container
You’ll need to store this homemade bath scrub in a small sealable container. Keeping it sealed will help keep moisture out of this recipe to help it last longer. Using a spoon instead of your fingers to get the scrub out of the container will help with that as well.
Things to Remember When Using This Recipe
Don’t skip fractionated coconut oil or coconut oil in this recipe, it dilutes the essential oil to make it safe for your skin.
Be sure to be gentle while exfoliating your skin.
Mandarin Essential Oil can make you more likely to get sunburned, so avoid spending time in direct sunlight after using this recipe.
Never ingest any essential oil, even if it’s generally regarded as safe. For more information on why we don’t ingest essential oils, check out this blog post.
