Cinnamon-Swirl Coffee Scrub

Introduction: Cinnamon-Swirl Coffee Scrub

If you're ever looking for a quick gift, then I’ve got the perfect one for you to turn to. Cinnamon-Swirl Coffee Scrub! Everyone loves homemade gifts and with the success of last year’s Candy Cane Sugar Scrub, I decided to gift another bath-time goody this past Christmas. This scrub is wonderful for hostesses, secretaries, bosses, assistants at your doctor’s office, teachers, neighbors and as shower favors. The recipe even doubles like a charm! Perfect, right?

Gather the following ingredients:

2 cups coffee grounds, unbrewed
1/2 cup Turbinado sugar
6 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2-3 drops cinnamon fragrance oil
2 (0.5 ltr) glass containers with lid

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together. Using a spatula, transfer mix into the container and secure lid. Tie a ribbon and a tag on to the jar with these instructions: “Scoop a teaspoon or two of the scrub on your hands and gently massage in circular motions onto your skin. Leave on for 3 to 4 minutes before thoroughly rinsing. The scrub will tighten a bit on your skin.”

    Thanks! I'm going to try this. Why can't you use grounds that you have already made coffee from? I'm assuming it would still be gritty and acidic.


    Please be sure to use a skin safe fragrance oil. Not any old fragrance oil will do, and those that are skin safe will provide a "load" amount that is safe for use in various applications. :)
