DIY Coffee Scrub Recipe



What You Need

1/4 cup coffee grounds from brewed coffee
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup aloe vera gel

Directions

1.  Melt coconut oil in a glass dish in the microwave.  It melts fast, so use 10 second intervals until melted.
2.  Add aloe vera and coffee grounds and let cool completely.  Stir occasionally.
3.  When set, use the scrub in the shower to gently scrub away dead skin cells and moisturize your skin.

Do not use on your face or on sunburnt skin.  Wait for your skin to heal after a burn to use this.

Coconut oil is an excellent skin moisturizer, and aloe vera is said to have healing properties for dry skin.
