I have a deep affection for cappuccino and french vanilla is by far my favorite flavor. In fact, it’s really what inspired me to create this French Vanilla Coffee Sugar Scrub. Check out our entire collection of diy body scrub recipes.
Making your own sugar scrub is so simple, that as soon as you do it once, you will most likely keep making it because of how easy it is. Oh, and did I mention cheap? Seriously, it’s one of the least expensive DIY projects that I have ever done. Another bonus of making sugar scrub yourself is that you can add your favorite scents and colors, making something completely custom to you, or something that you plan to gift it to.
When making our diy bath and beauty products, we like to use Rocky Mountain Oils, because they have such a great selection of single oils as well as essential oil blends. We also love this mica powder for any of our projects that require color, and this sweet almond oil anytime a carrier oil is called for in a recipe.
Sugar scrubs are so great for exfoliating your skin, getting rid of those dead skin cells. Exfoliating with a sugar scrub can help create the appearance of smoother, glowing skin. I use a sugar scrub regularly on my skin and it really helps!
French Vanilla Coffee Sugar Scrub
You’ll need just a few ingredients to make your french vanilla sugar scrub. Most, if not all of these ingredients are likely in your house already. You’ll also need a few glass mason jars (I use the 4oz ones) and canning funnel, in addition to a glass bowl, measuring cups and a spoon. This recipe will fill (3) 4 ounce mason jars, and should be used within about 6 months.
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup liquid coconut oil
- 20 drops vanilla essential oil
- 1 tbsp coffee grounds – you can even use coffee grounds that have already been brewed!
Now, just a few simple steps and you will have a delicious smelling, exfoliating sugar scrub to use.
Step 1. Add sugar, coconut oil and essential oil to a bowl. Stir well
Step 2. Add coffee grounds.
Step 2. Stir well to combine.
Step 4. Using a canning funnel, pour into 4 ounce mason jars.
See, it really is that simple to make your own sugar scrub! What other scents would you use?
