5 Minute DIY Body Scrub

In Beauty, Style by Tina BowlingLeave a Comment

Every woman needs a good body scrub and you can actually make one at home in less than 5 minutes!  Why spend a fortune when you can whip up a more natural body scrub with just a few items from your pantry? As a coffee fanatic, I love this easy DIY recipe for a caffeinated body scrub!

1 cup brown or white sugar
5 tbsp coffee grounds
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (you can also use almond oil or baby oil)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp peppermint extract


Mix the sugar and coffee, then slowly add the oil to coat.  You can adjust this recipe to your liking depending on how thick or thin you like your scrub.  Add in your extracts and feel free to get creative using whatever extracts smell good to you!  Why not try using flavored coffee for a different fragrance?  I have blueberry coffee that would probably make a great body scrub.

This DIY coffee scrub will not only smell delicious, it can aid in decreasing cellulite.  Using this in your shower twice a week could make your thighs actually look tighter.  Now you can rock those skinny jeans with even MORE confidence than before!

Have you ever made your own body scrub?  What’s your favorite recipe?
