YIELDS

Four 4oz Jars

We are adding some Bella Tica Organic Coffee grounds for exfoliation and coffee butter for really nice extra moisture.

The scrub can be used with fresh or used coffee grounds. When utilizing used coffee grounds, make sure they are completely dry to avoid bacterial growth. Products that contains water needs a preservative to prevent mold. While this scrub is only made with oil and potassium cocoate, the recipe does contain Optiphen because it may come in contact with water in the shower. It can be omitted if you prefer.

Coffee Oil Butter

Coffee oil is definitely the star in this scrub. Extracted directly from roasted coffee beans produces a thick texture & dark color. The combination of the coffee oil, coffee butter, and coffee grounds gives the recipe a fabulous coffee smell. Adding a touch of Espresso Fragrance Oil gives the scrub some sweeter notes. If you’re using Bella Tica organic quality, fresh coffee grounds, you probably don’t need to use any fragrance oil at all.

This scrub is quite “dry,” still it leaves behind a light oily-feel on the skin. The coffee oil is quite dark, but the scrub doesn’t leave any color on the skin, due to the potassium cocoate used in this recipe. You could also use a liquid soap base if you prefer.
