We’ve read that incorporating coffee into your every day beauty routine can have amazing benefits, due to its exfoliating and anti-inflammatory properties, it promises to temporarily reduce cellulite, improve circulation, reduce eye puffiness, and smooth skin. Seems like a no-brainer! We’ve found a great way to create a delicious smelling body scrub with your used coffee pods! Just follow the how-to below.

What You’ll Need:

  • A container or old jar
  • A sharp knife
  • 15-20 used coffee pods
  • 1/4 a cup of brown or granulated sugar (your choice)
  • 1 vanilla pod (optional)
  • Baby oil

How To:

  • Carefully open your used coffee pods with a sharp knife.
  • Empty the contents of your coffee pods into your chosen container and mix until it becomes moist.
  • Add your chosen sugar and mix.
  • Add your vanilla pod (optional).
  • Mix all the ingredients until they create a fusion of all three.
  • If your mixture is too dry add a dash of baby oil.
  • Enjoy in the bath or shower!

We love making this with our Gourmesso coffee capsules, a great way to recycle unused coffee that would otherwise go to waste!
