What You Need:
- 3/4 cup coarsely ground coffee
- 1.5 cups Epsom salt
- 3/4 cup unrefined coconut oil
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract (or couple drops essential oil)
- spoon and jar
Combine your Epsom salt and coffee together. You can play with the ratio if you want a stronger coffee smell, but we find that this mixture is perfect.
Add your unrefined coconut oil to the salt and coffee mixture, and stir. Unrefined coconut oil has a stronger, more coconut-y (AKA more delicious) scent than refined coconut oil, which is why we recommend it.
Finally, add a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and stir well. You could substitute vanilla essential oil if you want.
House your coconut and coffee body scrub in a sealed jar and store either in the fridge or the bathroom. We recommend using it within a couple months, but it can keep for up to six.
