Homemade Coffee-Coconut Sugar Scrub

Coffee has been used for centuries as a natural cellulite fighting and skin firming ingredient. The caffeine enhances fat metabolism, and when it’s applied topically, it can absorb and remove liquid fat from your skin, which decreases the appearance of cellulite.

Coconut oil is a fantastic natural moisturizing lotion. It is anti-aging, acne fighting and will not clog your pores. Together, the coconut oil, coffee grinds and sugar make an amazing all-natural firming and skin softening scrub. I made my coffee sugar scrub with my own roasted coffee bean grounds, natural cane sugar and solid, organic virgin coconut oil. I have made a few different variations, but this recipe is my go-to favorite.

    • Hi Dani! Stacy made her scrub in September and is still using jars from her first batch. If you store the scrub in an air-tight container it should keep for a long time. Hope that helps!

    • If the coffee Grounds have been used…(?)… and will be added to oil, wouldn’t I have to dry the used Grounds out before adding to coconut butter/oil? Since, water and oil don’t mix it seems if any water was left in Grounds ,?, could it mould possibly?
      I think I’ll use fresh coffee so I don’t have to think too much lol… sounds great! I think a little cocoa stirred in (antioxidants) would smell Yummy also? It would be like playing in the mud! How fun!

      • I have used coffee grounds from my Keurig cups. I just cut open the cup and extract the grounds onto a plate and either let air dry overnight or place in microwave to dry. Works fine for me. I keep a jar on hand just for things like this.

    • Hi Alexandria – Stacy uses her weekly but there is no harm in using it daily, just depends on how sensitive your skin is to all the scrubbing!
