DIY COFFEE SCRUB

I love making my own body scrubs. They're all natural, easy to make and they actually work! They're also really cheap!! This one is perfect to use in the morning to wake up and get you going. The caffeine is great for circulation and preventing cellulite. The peppermint is refreshing and promotes circulation, and the olive oil is very moisturizing and makes the skin so soft!

Warning: This is really messy so be prepared to clean your shower after!

I usually don’t use exact measurements, I use my eye but I suggest only making a few days at a time. If you store it in the refrigerator, it will last longer.

Mix about 4 scoops of coffee grinds,  olive oil (sweet almond oil and coconut oil work too) and a few drops of peppermint oil in a bowl or container.  The peppermint oil is strong, so start with a little and build up If you want more. Mix it together with a spoon and it’s ready to go!

Here's a video so you can see how quick and easy it is to make!
