Coffee cinnamon body scrub

The longest part of this fantastic, edible body scrub is sourcing all the ingredients – though you might have all of them at home already!

This stuff just smells fantastic and it makes your skin deliciously soft. Coffee is also great for cellulite! I used up all the old beans we had in our back cupboard and loved the smell of vanilla, coffee and coconut wafting over the kitchen.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups coconut oil
  • Dried, ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup coarsely ground coffee beans
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • seeds of  vanilla pod

Method

  1. Microwave the coconut oil until melted (do it gently and slowly), and leave to cool so the sugar won’t melt when you mix it all together.
  2. Mix the rest of the ingredients together – add cinnamon to desired quantity (I used about a tablespoon).
  3. Spoon into sterilised jars.

The stuff is edible – my boyfriend was literally licking it off his hands after we finished.

Thanks to Margie for a fantastic little shoot together. Isn’t she gorgeous!
