COFFEE BODY SCRUB
Recipe courtesy of SpaIndex.com: Guide to Spas

INGREDIENTS:
2 cups of coarsely ground coffee beans*
1/2 cup raw sugar or sea salt
2-3 tablespoons massage oil

DIRECTIONS:

Mix all ingredients together. Take a hot shower to moisten your skin and open your pores. Using wide, circular motions, rub the coffee exfoliant onto your skin with strong, even pressure. Shower off, pat skin dry, and apply a thin layer of your favorite body lotion.  
*We’ve tried this with used coffee grounds from our coffee maker and it worked just fine. After all, you’re after the exfoliating effect and the fact you’ve used the grounds to brew coffee doesn’t lessen this effect.  It also makes them a tad softer.  Consider it a new form of composting and recycling!
