DIY Coffee scrubs re-purposing Cameron’s Coffee Grounds

Being the health and beauty nut that I am, I love experimenting and trying new products. But sometimes I just get that itch to make something myself, something unique and different that you can’t buy at a store.

So today I will be sharing 2 DIY coffee scrub recipes that I made using Cameron’s Coffee. Coffee scrubs are insanely popular and available basically anywhere, but I have some ingredients up my sleeve that make these scrubs a little different and maybe better than store bought ones. One benefit of these scrubs is that I know exactly what I put into them and exactly for what reasons. So why not only enjoy the smooth taste of your morning coffee and then re-purpose the grounds to achieve smooth skin?

The first scrub is what I like to call Buh Bye stretch marks. Let’s be honest we all have them! So why not make them less visible? You ready? Here is what you’ll need:

1 cup fresh dry or used coffee grounds (I use the grounds from my French Press, it’s always cool to be able to re-purpose, right?)

1/3 cup coconut oil

Essential oils (only use what you like, I had some peppermint around, so I’ll  be using that!)

Banjaras Skincare powder (aka Turmeric powder – available on Amazon, helps reduce appearance of any sort of marks on your skin)

Any type of jar or container (I just said goodbye to my kombucha scoby, so I have a whole bunch of Mason jars laying around. Might as well use them up for something!)

Calendula oil (It’s an amazing moisturizer on it’s own, but helps add that extra oomph to the exfoliant!)

Argan oil (same kind of idea as above)

You want to mix all of your ingredients in a jar and apply! This scrub can be applied on both dry and wet skin, but I do recommend applying it first thing in the shower, as the turmeric powder will leave a yellow  tint on your hands.

The second scrub is a  multipurpose one, it can be used on scalp, face, lips, or body.

The only ingredient that makes it especially good for the scalp and the hair is coconut milk! You heard me! I just learned that trick from Bergdorf Goodman hair stylist, Lucy Garcia Planck.

For this scrub you will need:

½ cup of coffee

1/3 cup coconut oil

¼ cup castor oil

¼ cup brown sugar

Jasmine oil

¼ cup coconut milk

Feel free to play around with ingredients! I can’t wait to see what coffee scrub combos you will come up with! And share some ways how you repurpose used coffee grounds!
