DIY Beauty - Sweet Coffee Body Scrub

Beautiful Basics originally started as a page dedicated to simple DIY beauty and even though the blog changed a bit somewhere along the way I still love and appreciate a good kitchen cabinet beauty recipe. If you’re a fan of body scrubs and the full-bodied scent of coffee then look no further than this super easy to make at home scrub.

What you’ll need:
¼ cup of coffee grounds - fresh or used will work fine
1 cup of sugar
2/3 cup of your favorite skin friendly oil - I used sweet almond but you can use whatever you like most!
10-15 drops of peppermint essential oil – peppermint is my favorite essential oil and the scent is perfect for perking up tired skin
A few drops of vanilla extract – this adds a sweet and delicious scent (this part is optional)

Combine all of the ingredients and mix well to make sure everything is blended together. Store in a jar and use in the shower or tub. This scrub is exfoliating but also hydrating.

Be aware that using oils in products in the shower or bathtub can leave behind a slick film, so be sure to be careful after using. It might even be a good idea to clean your shower after using, that’s what I always do!
