Learn how to DIY this homemade truffle buff recipe for an exfoliating in the shower body butter scrub that leaves your skin extraordinarily soft!

This truffle buff recipe was created by Nadia Mansour, the former owner of a successful small business called, Ouish®, for which she created high end and all natural skincare products. Since then, however, Nadia has decided to take a break from the small business world and share her homemade skincare recipes instead on her new Facebook blog, The Nadia Effect. The Nadia Effect includes not only skincare recipes, but also DIY videos for making your own natural skincare products and even dessert recipes for baking up treats like her Hazelnut Mocha Cookies. I absolutely LOVE her page and my hope is that you’ll become a fan of hers  as well.

You’ll find Nadia’s truffle buff recipe below. It is, of course, re-printed with her permission.

Homemade Truffle Buff Recipe

© Nadia Mansour

Ingredients:

15 oz. kokum butter
15 oz. shea butter
3 oz. rice, ground
3 oz. almonds, ground
3 oz. adzuki beans, ground
.78 oz. (2%) skin safe fragrance, of choice

Instructions:

You’ll need a digital scale to weigh all of your ingredients.

Begin by weighing out the kokum and shea butter. Combine in a double boiler and melt the butters over low heat.

Once the butters have melted, remove from heat and pour into a clean bowl. Set aside.

Next, weigh out the dry ingredients separately.

Using a food processor grind the rice, almonds and adzuki  beans, one at a time, to a medium/fine texture. Don’t over process these ingredients as they will act as your exfoliants.

Weigh out the fragrance oil you’ve chosen to use for this truffle buff recipe. (Need fragrance oil suggestions? One of the best selling fragrance oils Nadia used in her products was the Chicks Dig It Fragrance Oil from Just Scent.)

Now add the ground dry ingredients and fragrance oil to the melted butter mixture. Stir the mixture thoroughly to combine then place in your refrigerator.

Every 5-10 minutes, take the bowl out of the fridge and give it a stir. Then pop the mixture back into the fridge and repeat the process. Be patient.

Keep repeating this process until the mixture starts to look opaque and most of the exfoliants start to suspend in the mixture. Once you get to that stage, work quickly and immediately pour the truffle buff  mixture into the cavities of a silicone mold of your choosing. (I recommend placing the mold on a cutting board before your fill them so they are easier to transport.)

Don’t worry if you waited too long to pour your truffle buff into the molds. If you realize it’s gone past the stage where it starts to turn opaque and the mixture has hardened, simply it into the microwave and melt it slightly. Re-mix and try again.

Once you’ve poured the melted truffle buff mixture into your mold, place the mold into your refrigerator until your bars have hardened.

Once hardened, simply remove your truffle buffs from the mold. Decorate the tops if desired. You can use regular dark chocolate to add an icing drizzle or even dark cocoa butter wafers.

Wrap your truffle buff bars in foodservice film and label as desired for gifting or until use.

Side Notes:

Nadia does not recommend adding colorants to her truffle buff recipe. Her experience has shown that they do not color the mixture well and are likely to leave color on your skin when used.

In addition, as this truffle buff recipe does not contain a preservative, it is essential that you follow proper storage guidelines. When the bar is not in use, keep it out of the shower and away from steam on an elevated plate, such as a soap dish, that will allow air to flow above and below the product. It needs to be kept dry between uses. However, if you’d like to use a preservative, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for the preservative you choose. Even with a preservative, however, it is highly recommend that you still follow the previously mentioned storage guidelines.

How to Use:

Use your truffle buff in the shower with warm-hot water running on your skin by massaging the truffle buff bar over your body in circular motions. The warm-hot water, along with your body temperature, will help to melt the truffle buff bar as you use it. Once completed, gently wash off any residue and pat skin dry with a towel to reveal your softest ever skin.

This Lush inspired massage bar recipe is so easy to make and only requires a few simple ingredients. Inspired by Lush's Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar, this massage bar recipe is made using a base of shea and cocoa butters, massaging organic Adzuki beans and a combination of cinnamon and peppermint essential oils for a warm, tingly sensation that helps to ease and soothe sore muscles.

DIY Coffee Scrub Benefits

So what are the benefits of a DIY coffee scrub? Coffee scrubs are often touted as being able to tackle cellulite and stretch marks. However, this easy DIY coffee scrub offers many other additional natural skin care benefits – especially for aging or maturing skin. Follow of some of the coffee scrub benefits you’ll experience through daily use.

  • Exfoliates skin to remove dead skin cells.
  • Smooths skin so it looks & feels more youthful.
  • Brightens dull skin to give it a healthy looking glow.
  • Fights the visible signs of aging.
  • Helps to prevent acne.
  • Reduces the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks.
  • Targets and fights inflammation that can make skin look puffy.

That all sounds pretty great, right? It really is. I love the difference adding a coffee scrub recipe to my daily beauty regimen has made. Plus they are so easy to whip together. However, unlike many of the DIY coffee scrub recipes you see on the internet, mine is different. I formulate my coffee scrub recipe without coconut oil – and for a very important reason.

Learn about coffee scrub benefits plus how to make the BEST DIY coffee scrub recipe for cellulite, stretch marks and anti-aging skin care. This DIY coffee scrub recipe without coconut oil a super easy beauty hack to get glowing skin and reduce puffiness caused by inflammation.

Why make a DIY coffee scrub without coconut oil?

As coconut oil has a fairly high comedogenic rating of 4 – meaning it can clog pores and cause acne when used – I chose to create a DIY coffee scrub recipe without coconut oil. In lieu of coconut oil I used sweet almond oil. Sweet almond oil has a comedogenic rating of 2, which is moderately low, and contains essential fatty acids as well as vitamins A and E. So not only will it not cause acne, it’s also an effective emollient for moisturizing skin. Plus, sweet almond oil is quickly and easily absorbed by the skin.

Benefits of sweet orange oil in a DIY coffee scrub.

In addition to swapping out the coconut oil in my DIY coffee scrub recipe, I also chose to use blood orange essential oil. I chose this natural essential oil for several reasons. Not only does sweet orange essential oil offer uplifting aromatherapeutic benefits, it also has anti-inflammatory skin care properties. And it has been proven effective at preventing acne and other dermatitis related issues. It can also aid in clearing up existing acne breakouts and further promote healing. So skin looks healthy and feels amazing.

However, it is important keep in mind that any citrus essential oil, including blood orange essential oil, can increase photosensitivity. So when using this DIY coffee scrub, you will need to take proper precautions against sun exposure. And, as with any essential oil, you should consult a physician before use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Additional ingredients in my DIY coffee scrub.

I have also included a few optional ingredients in my DIY coffee body scrub recipe. The fragrance oil is, of course, optional. It does smell wonderful and summery blended with the blood orange essential oil. However, you can choose to omit it entirely. Or simply use an alternate fragrance oil that blends nicely with orange. I also added extra caffeine to my scrub for its purported anti-aging benefits (though research is mixed) along with its anti-inflammatory properties and naturally occurring antioxidants. The caffeine also further aids in reducing inflammation which in turn can help with puffy skin. In addition, I also added a bit of steam distilled coffee oil to give my DIY coffee scrub recipe more of an underlying coffee scent.

Activated Charcoal Detox Mask Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

2.5 oz. kaolin (white cosmetic) clay
.15 oz. sea salt, fine ground
.1 oz. pink Himalayan (mineral) salt or Celtic sea (mineral blend) salt, fine ground
.1 oz. hardwood activated charcoal powder
.05 oz. calendula flower powder

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out all the ingredients and combine in a glass bowl. Mix well to combine.

Pour the activated charcoal detox mask into one 8 oz. jar. I specifically used a clear plastic 8 oz. low profile jar and a 200 mL cosmetic style jar from Infinity Jars for this project. (My activated charcoal detox mask recipe fills one 8 oz. container. To fill additional jars, double the recipe as needed.) Alternately, you can fill two 4 oz. jars with this recipe. I also like the 4 oz. glass salve jars for this recipe.

To use your activated charcoal detox mask, simply combine 1 Tablespoon of the mask with 1/2 Tablespoon of water in your hand to form a paste. Then massage the mask onto your skin in a circular motion. Rinse the mask off with warm water once it has dried.

Alternately, rather than mixing your mask with water, you can also mix your mask with aloe vera juice, plain Greek yogurt or rosehip seed oil to suit your skin’s individual needs.

Side Notes:

For more sensitive skin, reduce the amount of salt to no more than .2 oz. total. Additionally, if you have calendula petals, you can simply run them through a coffee grinder to create a powder.

Additionally, while clariSEA’s Deep Pore Detox Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Mask contains bamboo activated charcoal powder, I chose to use hardwood activated charcoal powder from Rocky Mountain Essentials. It’s both made and packaged in the USA and works well for detoxification and use as an ingredient in high end cosmetic products.

Free Printable Labels.

You can download the free printable activated charcoal mask labels for this recipe here. For the clear plastic low profile jar, I printed my labels onto a full size clear gloss inkjet label sheet. For the beautiful, deep ultraviolet (these jars appear black) light proof jar, I printed my labels onto a full size white label sheet. I acquired both types of my label sheets from WorldLabel who sells quality labels in bulk at reasonable prices.

Blue-Green Algae Body Scrub Recipe with Coconut Oil

Follow me: Pinterest / Instagram / Facebook / Twitter / Email

This natural blue-green algae body scrub recipe with coconut oil contains blue-green algae rich in vitamins & minerals, lipids, active enzymes, and amino & nucleic and fatty acids and combines it with the moisturizing power of coconut oil also prized for its high vitamin E content and essential fatty acids.

This natural blue-green algae body scrub recipe with coconut oil contains blue-green algae and coconut oil, ingredients both prized for their antioxidant properties. Blue-green algae, or spirulina powder, is naturally rich in vitamins & minerals, lipids, active enzymes, amino, nucleic, and fatty acids. While coconut oil is prized for its high vitamin E content, essential fatty acids and moisturizing properties.

I used walnut hull powder as the exfoliant for this blue-green algae body scrub recipe which is rich in vitamin C and zinc. Black walnut hull powder also contains essential fatty acids which are believed to benefit dry skin and increase stimulation. However, you are not limited to using walnut hull powder as your exfoliant. You can also substitute sugar, sea salt or apricot kernel meal in this blue-green algae body scrub recipe for the walnut powder.

In addition to coconut oil, I also used one of my favorite dry oils in this body scrub recipe – hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil is rich in essential omega fatty acids and proteins which really help make this scrub leave skin feeling truly remarkable without feeling greasy or oily.

Blue-Green Algae Body Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

2.5 oz. refined coconut oil
1.5 oz. hemp seed oil
.25 oz. xanthan gum powder
1.5 oz. walnut hull powder
.2 oz. spirulina powder
2 ml + 8 drops essential oil of choice, optional

Instructions:

I use xanthan gum powder (available in most grocery stores) in this blue-green algae body scrub recipe to help thicken up the scrub so it’s not overly thin due to the addition of the hemp seed oil. You can substitute the xanthan gum with arrowroot powder or another gum powder if you like. Alternately, you could omit the xanthan gum powder all together and instead add about .15 oz. of cocoa butter or .25 oz. shea butter to this blue-green algae body scrub recipe to achieve a stiffer consistency. (However, you may have to play with substitutions a bit though based on the product you’re using and your climate to get the desired consistency. Also keep in mind ingredient changes like swapping the gum powder for butters may cause the scrub to take an extra day or so to fully thicken.)

To make this homemade body scrub recipe you’ll begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the coconut oil. Place in a glass Pyrex measuring cup (or you can use a double boiler) and heat in the microwave until melted.

Weigh out the hemp seed oil and the xanthan gum powder and stir into the melted coconut oil. Heat at reduced power, mixing occasionally for several minutes. Don’t let the mixture boil.

Remove from heat. Then weigh out the walnut hull powder and spirulina powder and stir into the oil and xantham gum mixture.

Using a graduated transfer pipette measure out your essential oil and stir into the blue-green algae body scrub. (Using an essential oil is optional, however, the spirulina powder will make this body scrub smell very sea-like it you don’t add an essential oil to mask the natural scent of the blue-green algae. Alternately you can use your favorite ocean scented fragrance oil.)

Allow the blue-green algae body scrub to set up – you can speed this up by placing the body scrub in the fridge – then remix the scrub to reincorporate any ingredients that may have settled during the time the scrub was solidifying. Spoon the final product into a 6 oz. glass jar of your choice.

To use simply apply in a circular motion to wet skin as desired then rinse clean and pat dry!
