Incorporate this refreshing dose of coffee and coconut into your a.m. shower, and you’ll be less tempted to hit the snooze button each morning!
This four-ingredient DIY uses heavenly smelling coconut oil and ground coffee to give your day some extra pep (which we can all use). Anyone can make it, and you probably already have everything you need on hand.
What You Need:
- 3/4 cup coarsely ground coffee
- 1.5 cups Epsom salt
- 3/4 cup unrefined coconut oil
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract (or couple drops essential oil)
- spoon and jar
Combine your Epsom salt and coffee together. You can play with the ratio if you want a stronger coffee smell, but we find that this mixture is perfect.
Add your unrefined coconut oil to the salt and coffee mixture, and stir. Unrefined coconut oil has a stronger, more coconut-y (AKA more delicious) scent than refined coconut oil, which is why we recommend it.
Finally, add a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and stir well. You could substitute vanilla essential oil if you want.
House your coconut and coffee body scrub in a sealed jar and store either in the fridge or the bathroom. We recommend using it within a couple months, but it can keep for up to six.
