Good Morning friends…I have a great way to wake up your face this morning and it is with a wonderful Coffee and Brown Sugar Scrub for your face and body. So add some extra coffee to that shopping list…you won’t only be drinking this fabulous brew in the morning!
This is probably the easiest thing you will ever make! Really. You can have a high end face scrub for pennies on the dollar in 5 minutes! All you will need is:
6 tablespoons of your favorite coffee
6 tablespoons of brown sugar (I use Trader Joe’s Organic Brown Sugar) it is unprocessed and Vegan
6 tablespoons of olive oil
3-4 tablespoons of coconut oil (if you do not have coconut oil…no problem using all olive oil
If you like a little aroma to your scrubs here’s a great tip…use a flavored coffee. I used a Fall Blend for this batch and it has a hint of pumpkin spice!
Take your coffee grounds and your brown sugar and place them both in your food processor and process on grind for a minute or two until they are finely ground. You want the finest grind you can get for your face scrub. When making a body scrub you can have a more course grind. The face is a delicate area so take the time for this step…if you have a coffee grinder you can use that also.
Once you have the coffee and sugar ready…just place in a bowl and gradually add your oil or oils gradually …mixing each time you add more oil. The end result should be a nice smooth thick muddy scrub and that is it! Place your new Coffee and Brown Sugar Scrub in a mason jar…add a label and you are good to go! Use a small dollop on your face each morning. I find it helpful to wet your face first and then use the scrub…gentle circular motions over the entire face and then rinse. Your face will feel refreshed and look like it is ready to face the day with a smile!
Coffee and Brown Sugar Scrub makes a great gift for family and friends! Make a whole big batch up …label them and use the little gift tags and tie them on! You will get an early start on those special little gifts. Yes…we have the labels ready and waiting for you in a selection of colors!
Hope you give this a try! I know you will love it and love how easy it is to make. Like I said…this Coffee and Brown Sugar Scrub makes a GREAT GIFT for any time of year…but how great would it be for the Holidays…a great stocking stuffer for sure and also a fabulous gift anyone on your list! Now I think I will go have another cup of java and then Wake Up My Face!!!
