Vanilla and coffee body scrub
What you’ll need: 1 ½ cups granulated sugar, ½ cup coconut oil, 20 drops of vanilla essential oil, one tablespoon of ground coffee.
How to make it: Combine all ingredients but the coffee grounds in a bowl. Coconut oil should be soft but not melted. Add coffee grounds at the end. Blend until thoroughly mixed. Massage onto damp skin. Rinse with warm water.
What it does: The antioxidants in the coffee grounds can help protect the skin from sun damage. Coffee can also boost circulation, which results in healthier looking skin. Coconut oil has moisturizing fatty acids, is antibacterial, and is anti-inflammatory. Sugar is a great exfoliant, removing dead skin cells to reveal new, smooth skin. The vanilla essential oil is also rich in antioxidants, and will leave you smelling great.
