Skincare: Homemade Coffee Scrub Recipe

Why spend endless amounts of money on coffee scrubs that aren’t tailored to your skin type and condition? There are many scrubs on the market which promise to erase all signs of cellulite, stretch marks and uneven skin tone – but how often does this actually work? Make your own personalised scrub at home with ingredients straight from the pantry, and avoid these unnecessary purchases.


2 cups coffee grounds

1 cup coconut oil

15 drops of essential oil


  1. Start with the 2 cups of coffee grounds, ensuring that all excess liquid has been removed from the mixture. You can choose to squeeze the liquid out with your hands, or even use a nut bag for a quicker solution.
  2. Add 1 cup of coconut oil which will create a smooth paste when used on the skin. Be sure to mix well before adding 15 drops of essential oil.
  3. Feel free to choose any kind of oil that you prefer – lavender, sweet orange and lemon grass are all popular choices which work well on even sensitive skin. These scents will also overpower the coffee smell if you just aren’t it’s biggest fan.
  4. After you have stirred in the essential oils, pour the mixture into ice-cube trays or muffin trays, then refrigerate. This allows the entire mixture to set, and will feel fresh every time you need to use it!
