Homemade Coffee Scrub

Cinnamon Coffee Scrub

This Coffee Scrub is made using a homemade coffee scrub recipe which can be found in this post as well as free printable tags to give Coffee Scrub as gift.

I love coffee and apparently as well as being a great morning fix it’s great for a homemade scrub. When I first saw this on Sugar and Cloth, I knew I had to make it. I mean you can just smell the coffee and cinnamon as I type, right? Or is it just me?! Anyway, that’s why I decided to keep my coffee grinds and add them into something I will scrub my body with! Again, another great mothers day craft for kids.

Coffee Scrub Recipe

  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • 2 cups of white sugar (I recommend using brown sugar if you want this for your face as it’s less harsh)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 TBS honey
  • 2 TBS coffee grinds

How to Make the Coffee Scrub

  1. Mix the coffee, cinnamon and sugar in a bowl.
  2. Work in the coconut oil with your hands.
  3. Add the honey and stir.
  4. Use a small amount with water when you want to exfoliate.
  5. Feel free to use the free printable tags I created to make a gift out of it for Mothers Day or Teacher Appreciation Gift.

  1. This might be a silly question but do you use fresh coffee grounds or used ones?

    • HAHHA Paula, it’s not silly! I was using it this week and wondered the same. I used used ones but they were dried. I’d recommend that (reusable stuff is always a plus!)
