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.
- 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
- 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.
- Mix the rest of the ingredients together – add cinnamon to desired quantity (I used about a tablespoon).
- 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!
