Coconut Coffee Skin Scrub Cubes
Coffee will wake you up, make you smell great, and reduce any puffiness in your face or body. The caffeine in coffee grounds is also a genius way to reduce cellulite. The caffeine absorbs into your skin and dehydrates the fluid in those pesky cellulite areas, so your skin is (temporarily) tighter and firmer! Combine 1/2 cup of coconut oil (microwave briefly to liquify) with 1/2 cup of fresh coffee grounds and then divide the mixture into muffin tins or ice cube trays. Once they have hardened (in fridge or counter) you can pop them out and store in a Ziploc or something. If you’re not using them immediately, keep them in the freezer!

This is really cool. I have a friend who likes making DIY beauty products with different oils, and I think she'd love giving these away as presents too.

This is a great base recipe for all other kinds of scrubs. I'd love to experiment with different oils.

Is there a version of this that uses something besides coconut? My sister is allergic. Maybe a combination of olive oil, or some other oil, and beeswax? I don't want to clog her pores either!
