Home Made:Coffee Body Scrub

Coffee Body Scrub

Here is a great pick me up to add to your morning routine! Brew yourself some coffee, have a few sips, and then hop in the shower and re-use your coffee grounds with a home made coffee body scrub! Coffee tightens and rejuvenates the skin, while sugar exfoliates, and olive oil seals in the moisture.

Cup of fresh brewed coffee and preparation vertical


1/4 cup olive oil

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup used coffee grounds

15 drops essential oil (Peppermint might help wake you up! :))


Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Take a warm bath or hot shower to open your pores and hydrate your skin. Tub the coffee mixture into your skin with firm pressure. Shower to rinse, pat dry, and follow with unscented body lotion. Enjoy! 🙂

  1. I use sugar scrubs, I haven’t tried a coffee one! On the list now!

    I love the idea of this! But I have a question. Since the coffee grounds do not dissolve (like sugar or salt), won’t they clog the drain eventually? Also, I have made coffee soap to remove strong odors (like garlic) from your hands, so won’t the coffee remove the fragrance from the scrub? Thanks!
