Homemade Organic Coffee Scrub

My sister gifted me this jar filled with this homemade coffee scrub which she actually made herself. I was so impressed she made the effort and I love the jar as opposed to the standard paper bag. If you haven’t already heard- Coconut and Coffee are extremely beneficial to the skin due to the high amount of antioxidants. People have even claimed that coffee reduces cellulite, I personally have no idea if this is actually true, but what I do know, is that this coffee scrub is extremely effective when it comes to exfoliating dead skin cells and rejuvenating the skin.

Because of the vanilla, this coffee scrub smells heavenly and my skin feels so good afterwards. Be sure to try it out before applying self tanner, the coffee will exfoliate your skin more effectively then a normal scrub, so it gives you the perfect base for a gorgeous even looking tan!

How do you like your coffee? 😛

Homemade Coffee Scrub


  • 1 Cup Ground Coffee
  • 1 Cup Sugar or Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla (optional)



1. Melt coconut oil and allow it to cool but not solidify.

2. Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container or mason jar.

3. Use 1-2 times a week (or everyday if you like).

4. The coffee and sugar will exfoliate your skin and the coconut oil will leave your skin soft and moisturized.

If you love this scrub as much as I do, make sure you give this post a share so your friends can try it too!
