That Time When I Hated Coffee…

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I love a good cup of hot coffee in my hands to warm up my soul here in damp Seattle. But there was a time when I couldn’t stand the smell of coffee. This was problematic because, while working in sales, I picked up coffee for clients ALL. THE. TIME.

I not only knew the baristas at the 5 closest Starbucks, I knew their life stories, challenges in school or with their kids, and even developed a friendship with one barista because we both had a love for snowboarding.

But now (A.K. – after kids), I have a cup or two every morning. And because I love to make my own DIY sugar scrub recipes at the drop of a hat, I just combined the two activities and hit perfection!

How to Make a Coffee Scrub

Yield: 2 cups scrub

Coffee Sugar Scrub

DIY Coffee Sugar Scrub

This coffee sugar scrub is so easy and simple to do prepare for yourself or as a gift for that coffee-loving friend.

Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup finely ground coffee
  • 1 cup sugar (raw or granulated)
  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (or almond oil)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or another scent which goes well with coffee)*

Instructions

  1. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave, if needed. You want it just melted – not too hot. If it gets too hot to touch, let it cool before adding the sugar, otherwise, it will melt. Speaking from experience…
  2. Stir in the sugar, coffee, and remaining ingredients until everything is well incorporated. You’ll know it’s done when it’s no longer granular and there are no dry parts.
  3. Divide the coffee sugar scrub into jars.

Notes

  • If this is a gift, tell the recipient that this will store best for about 3 months and to keep it dry. It’s best to get a scoop before the shower so no water gets into the jar.
  • To use, apply the coffee scrub to wet skin and move in a circular motion. Rinse off and take care that the oils might make the tub or shower slippery. Use within 2 weeks because there is no preservative.
