DIY Peppermint Coffee Sugar Scrub
- 1 ½ cups brewed coffee grounds
- ½ cup coconut sugar (I use this brand)
- 3 tablespoons fractionated coconut oil (I use this brand)
- 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil (I use this brand)
- 12 drops peppermint essential oil (get it here)
- (2) half pint mason jars (get them here)
- Spread the coffee grounds onto layers of paper towels and allow to dry completely (approximately 24 hours).
- Combine the coffee grounds and the coconut sugar in a medium bowl, and mix to combine.
- Add the fractionated coconut, vitamin E oil, and essential oils and mix well.
- Divide the mixture evenly between the two jars.
- This is for use in the shower. Use approximately 1 to 2 tablespoons of the scrub at a time. Rub thoroughly over the skin in a circular motion, then rinse completely.
