Summer is finally here and we’re doing everything in a bikini! So when we came across this toning and tightening coffee scrub made from all natural organic ingredients, we were sold!



The ocean is our first love, but coffee might be a close second. This is a great way to use those old coffee grounds from this morning’s brew that would otherwise end up in the compost bin. (Yes, that’s right you can compost your coffee. Check out this blog post to learn how.)



Let’s talk about all the goodness inside this scrub!


  • Coconut Oil is one of clean beauty’s best kept secrets that will add a ton of moisture and vitamins to your skin.
  • Coffee contains caffeine which tones and tightens the skin.
  • Sea salt adds a little extra exfoliant to scrub away those dead skin cells.
  • Cinnamon has a ton of antioxidants that are great for helping to keep skin clear and hydrated.



This scrub left our skin feeling so soft and visibly tighter, it’s our new summer shower staple! (Like we needed another excuse to have an afternoon coffee…) Cheers!



What you'll need: 3 tbsp. organic sea salt (a little extra exfoliation), 6 tbsp. coconut oil (ultra moisturizing), 1 cup used coffee grounds (improves blood circulation and reduces the appearance of cellulite), 1 tsp. cinnamon (rich in antioxidants for clearer skin and helps to hydrate).



Step 1: Combine all ingredients into a medium bowl. *Pro Tip: add in the coconut oil little by little to get the scrub consistency you're looking for.



Step 2: Mix together.



Step 3: Scoop into a waterproof sealable jar. 






How to use: In the shower, apply your scrub to areas that you'd like toned/ exfoliated (we recommend the booty area and legs). Massage the scrub onto skin in a circular motion before rinsing. Repeat everyday for best results.
