This recipe is sure to be a hit.

I love it so much I want to keep it all for myself! But, I’ll share.

I love coffee for a million reasons (the smell, the taste, the energy) but a great one that you may not be aware of is its ability to erase kitchen odors. You know the odors I’m talking about- you chop up an onion, wash your hands and hours later the smell is still lingering! Ew.

This scrub mixes the odor eliminating power of coffee with dead sea salts and espresso for exfoliation, and nourishing oils that will leave your hands feeling amazing.

I won’t lie, it’s pretty wonderful 🙂

Make some for yourself and see what all the fuss is about.

For this recipe you’ll need:

Mini Heremes Jars

Start by blending the dry components of the recipe. This will ensure that the espresso powder is evenly distributed throughout the mixture before the oils are added.

Add in all of the oils and stir well. Be sure to scoop from the bottom and the sides to make sure all of the dry ingredients get mixed into the oils.

Add in the essential oil. You can adjust this amount (more or less) if you’d like. I found that a teaspoon yielded the exact scent I was looking for- obvious coffee fragrance, but not overpowering. Stir again mixing the oil all the way through the scrub mixture.

The finished product will look like this. Isn’t it gorgeous?! Soft brown with dark specks of espresso powder dotted throughout. I just love it!

Carefully scoop the salt scrub mixture into lidded containers. Be sure you choose a container that seals tightly so that the oil doesn’t leak out if the jar gets bumped over.

To use, massage into damp hands, rinse off with warm water and towel dry skin. I always dab my skin dry (so that I’m not wiping the oils off) and then massage the remaining oil into the skin. It leaves my hands SO soft!

Try it for yourself and enjoy!

    1. Hi Lisa! Very good question. Using recycled used coffee grounds would make working with this recipe a bit tedious and you are right it would affect the life span of the scrub negatively.

      Happy creating!
