DIY Vanilla Coffee Scrub

I've been wanting to share this DIY Scrub with you for so long! It is a wonderfully aromatic, skin softening scrub.

It is really easy to make and the ingredients were already in my pantry.

Most recipes I found used already used coffee grounds, I rarely make coffee at home.

This recipe uses dry coffee grounds.

Coffee has a tightening and stimulating affect on skin and it is often used in anti-aging products.

Coconut Oil nourishes the skin .

Brown Sugar naturally exfoliates the skin.

Sea Salt for texture.

Vanilla - it smells so good.

Here is what you need:

  • ½ cup finely ground coffee
  • ½ cup organic brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • ½ teaspoons natural Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • an old container

  1. Place the coffee and sugar in a medium size bowl.
  2. Add the sea salt, vanilla and mix well.
  3. Add the Coconut oil and stir with a fork or the back of a spoon until well mixed and moistened.
  4. Store in an air-tight container and use as desired for soft skin.
  5. Enjoy!

I found this also is especially good on legs for helping with cellulite. I used the product on one leg to see if there were results, this was from using the scrub for 2 weeks.

If you are a paley ( light skin) like me who doesn't tan, it gives a light glow to the skin.

- makes skin super soft
- shower smells amazing and scent lingers on skin
- helps with cellulite
- sun-kissed glow (if you are light skinned)


- it get all over the shower and bathtub.Be prepared to leave the shower going after you get out.

I really enjoyed this Vanilla Coffee Scrub, hope you do too!
