Ohhh yesssss. Coffee! Who doesn’t love coffee? And if you are not a coffee drinker, then how about the smell? The yummy aroma of fresh, hot, coffee. I wonder if this is what Heaven smells like?
Ok I must go make myself a cup now.
Phew! Much better! It is hard for me to talk about it and not actually be living in the moment. Ok, back on track…
I have heard of coffee scrubs before, scrolling through my Instagram newsfeed, I would see pictures of someones hands covered in coffee grounds and I would think “What in the world!” Well, I have done some research (if you know me, this is nothing new as I am in what I like to call, the Queen of Research!). In my happy hunting I have discovered that coffee grounds actually can burn the fat on your skin, replenishing the cells and stimulating fresh cells to form causing fresh, tighter, younger looking skin! And if you are anything like me, I would LOVE to have fresh tighter skin. My mind was brewing. I had to do something with coffee grounds. It was then I realized I wanted to make a Cellulite Coffee Scrub. I scoured the internet and come to find out, others were already doing it so I decided it was my turn!
A light went on in my head. I had to provide gift favors for a baby shower for a bunch of women, and which woman would complain about receiving a Cellulite Coffee Scrub? wahoo! So here is what I did…..
I started with 2 cups, pure-refined-organic-cold pressed coconut oil. I melted that in the microwave into a liquid form. I then measured out 2 cups brown sugar, 1 cup white sugar and aprox 1 cup fresh, coffee grounds. I mixed it all together and added 3 tablespoons of Vit E oil. Depending on how you like your consistency, is when you know to either add more sugar or more oil! I like my scrubs a little courser, which is the reasoning behind using more Brown Sugar, than White.
It was beginning to smell ahhhhhhmazing! But then wait for itttttttt…. Heres what topped off the icing to the cake! I added 4 drops of Young Living Essential Oil Cinnamon Bark. Oh. My. Gosh. It was like I could just sit there and inhale it all day long. Yummy.
I then used wide mouth mason jars to fill with the scrub. Then labeled them with my cute chalkboard labels, tied a burlap string around it and wrote on the tags! I felt it was the perfect gift favors!
I then packaged them in pretty bags and included my business card, some info on YL oils and took them to the baby shower!
Well, I was right! They were a complete hit! The ladies loved them, and I loved making them and giving them! Over all it was a win-win situation.
