Energising Peppermint Body Scrub

This is a scrub that I make regularly (I especially love gifting it to friends and family!). It is perfect to use in your morning shower as an invigorating pick-me up.

The peppermint oil is an incredibly energising scent and will instantly wake you up and prepare you for your day. The sugar crystals help to give your skin a beautiful, gentle exfoliation, and the coffee grounds are filled with antioxidants and can help reduce the appearance of cellulite. The coconut oil leaves your skin feeling so soft and hydrated, you will step our of the shower loving your body and ready to embrace the day.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup coarse coffee grounds

  • 1 cup raw organic sugar

  • 1/2 cup organic coconut oil

  • 6-10 drops of peppermint essential oil

Method:

  • If you are in a cooler climate and your coconut oil is solidified, gently melt it on a low heat in a saucepan.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the oil, sugar and coffee grounds.

  • Add your peppermint oil drops. Start with fewer drops and then add more if desired.

  • Store in a glass jar at room temperature

Depending on the quality of your oil you may need to use more. A high grade pure essential oil like doTERRA will require less drops and have higher therapeutic benefits.

You can easily substitute the coconut oil for almond oil or olive oil if you would prefer!
