Organic Sweet Coco Scrub

My brother made all the women in my family some Brown Sugar Scrub one year for Christmas, so this is a little inspired by him. I went organic because that is what I like and I think it differentiates this gift from what you can buy in the store. No chemicals! Yay! I also threw in some ingredients that are known to be beneficial for the skin like oatmeal, coconut oil, and caffeine (from the coffee beans).

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup organic brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup organic coffee beans
  • 1/4 cup organic oatmeal
  • 2/3 cup organic coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. organic vanilla extract
Yields about 8oz.of scrub.

Using a food processor or coffee grinder, grind coffee beans and oatmeal until fine. You don’t want large abrasive pieces on your skin. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until all ingredients are well incorporated.

Transfer to gift container and finish with a bow and label. I put the list of ingredients and directions on the back of my label so everyone knows what they are getting into.

To use, I recommend a small scoop for the body and about a quarter size for just the hands. Gently rub the scrub in circular motions until sugar has dissolved. Rinse well and dry.

I like this scrub because it smells like a sweet latte and it invigorates your skin with the caffeine from the coffee.
