DIY Coffee Scrub

Hey everybody! Sorry it’s been so long. I’ve just been super busy! Last weekend I was in my cousin’s wedding.(Which, by the way was SO beautiful !) Unfortunately, the next day I woke up and was feeling pretty under the weather. Stuffed up nose, sore throat, the whole sheebang. But, today I am feeling exponentially better… And my baby is napping! Yay!

So enough of the small talk, lets get down to it. A few months ago I was prowling insta when I found that Kristin Cavallari, most famous for the hit Tv show The Hills, had posted a coffee scrub recipe from her new book Balancing in Heels. I loved it because a. It was all natural b. There are less than 5 ingredients c. SUPER EASY

Ingridients

1/4 cup finely ground coffee beans

2 Tbls Cocoa powder

3 Tbls Almond Milk or Coconut Oil

(Keep adding the almond milk or coconut oil if you need more)

You mix all of the ingredients together and

THATS IT!!

** We didn’t have any cocoa powder so I used hot chocolate instead. Same thing, right?

Once I had mixed everything together I put it in one of Kennedy’s old, cleaned baby food containers. The recipe does make a very small amount, but I found that I could get a couple of uses out of the recipe. I will warn you, It does get a little messy while you’re using it. At first I was really nervous because it looked like a pig whole had been  rolling in the mud had been in my shower! The cleanup wasn’t terrible though, one quick rinse, and it was all down the drain. Plus, it left my skin feeling super smooth!

This would make such a cute gift for some one. I cut out a piece of square fabric that I had left over from another project, and placed it on top of the jar. Then I took a small piece of twine and wrapped it in a bow. SO. STINKIN. CUTE!

    I make this all of the time! I love it.

    I make one with rose petals and brown sugar too! (A good way to reuse all of those flowers Kenny should be getting you).
