Project Description

Made with coffee grounds, coffee butter, and coffee oil, this easy scrub is perfect for any caffeine lover.

This scrub can be used with fresh or used coffee grounds. If you add used coffee grounds, make sure they are completely dry to avoid bacterial growth. Any product that contains water needs a preservative to prevent mold. While this scrub is only made with oil and potassium cocoate, the recipe does contain Optiphen because it may come in contact with water in the shower.

Coffee oil is the star of this scrub. It is extracted directly from roasted coffee beans and has a thick texture and dark color. The combination of the coffee oil, coffee butter, and coffee grounds gives the recipe a nice coffee smell. We added a touch of Espresso Fragrance Oil to add sweeter notes.

This scrub is quite dry, but it leaves behind a light oily feel on the skin. While the coffee oil is quite dark, the scrub doesn’t leave any color on the skin. You an also use a liquid soap base if you prefer.
