Love the Skin You’re In: Sugar and Coffee Scrubs

20150221_175401 (1)These two SIMPLE scrubs are a great gift for Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day or just when you need to give yourself a little love. Stop paying a premium for expensive scrubs because you can whip something up in just minutes.  I love both for how smooth my skin feels after and they don’t have any harsh chemicals.

Lemon Sugar Scrub Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Organic Coconut Oil
  • 1 1/2 – 2 1/2 cups Sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp. lemon zest
  • 8-10 drops lemon essential oil

Melt coconut oil for 30 seconds or until it becomes liquid. Add lemon essential oil and lemon zest with the melted coconut oil. Then add sugar and mix until well combined. TIP: Start with 1 1/2 cups of sugar and add more, about 1/2 a cup at a time, until you reach the consistency you enjoy the best. I prefer a coarser scrub so it was about 2 1/2 cups of sugar.

Coffee Sugar Scrub Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons finely-ground coffee (TIP: you can use brewed grounds)
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Stir all ingredients together until combined. Store in a sealed jar for up to 2 months.
