What better use for stale coffee grounds than to recycle in into something new. This recipe is for an invigorating facial scrub using coffee grounds, sugar, and oil. Natural and inexpensive!

Step 1: BoM

1/2 cup coffee grounds

1 cup coconut sugar (raw Turbino sugar works as well)

1/8-1/4 cup coconut oil

Essential oils -optional

This recipe can be easily increased to meet your needs. Store in an airtight container and use within 2-3 weeks.

Step 2: Mix

Mix all of the ingredients together, making sure to incorporate the oil well. Add more coconut oil if necessary.

Step 3: Fin!

Transfer your mixture to an airtight container or begin using right away. Use by scooping some of the mixture with a damp hand and applying to your dampened face. Rotate your fingers in small circles for maximum exfoliation.
