I am in love with coffee and the gorgeous smell that emanates from this scrumptious little bean. Both my mom and I are guilty of finishing many cups of coffee together while she visits. It always brings me to a happy spot when I think of us both sitting together sipping coffee in my home. With Mother's Day fast approaching, I wanted to find an easy DIY project with a decadent end result that could conjure this same feeling for my mother.
In my search, I noticed sugar scrubs are ever popular. They are useful, the recipes are often very simple and I discovered incorporating an ingredient like coffee is very easy. And really, what woman doesn't want to be pampered?
This Coffee Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub consists of just 3-ingredients and smells almost good enough to eat. Plus, if you want super soft skin, Barlean's Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is the perfect choice. For many, coconut oil has become a great alternative to highly processed cooking oils, but it is also a fantastic moisturizer! Coconut Oil is quickly absorbed in the skin, which means no oily residue is left behind, and Barlean's Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is additive-free, which makes it a great option for people with sensitive skin and skin allergies.
Check out this super-easy recipe below to make your very own batch of this yummy sugar scrub!
- 1 cup ground coffee
- 1/2 cup of brown or white sugar
- 1/2 cup of melted Barlean's Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
- Mix & store in a sealed container in the fridge. Enjoy!
I plan on making a batch just for the one who gave me life, and maybe even one for myself! I am so grateful to my mother, and I hope she will enjoy the Coffee Coconut Oil Sugar Scrub as much as I do. To my mother and all the mothers of the world - Happy Mother's Day!
