Homemade Caffeinated Body Scrub! Cellulite Reducer!!!

Hi everyone!! I am so excited to share my new body scrub recipe with you. Last year for Christmas I made peppermint sugar body scrub for all the wonderful women in my life. After that I fell in love with experimenting with different body scrubs. There are so many reasons why homemade body scrub is the bomb but these to facts alone should make YOU try it!!!!

1. It's ALL natural and you know what goes into it (AND I'll bet your butt you already have most of the ingredients in your kitchen, RIGHT NOW) 
2. It is so CHEAP.
I am a coffee lover. I could go on for two days about the 54986454 reasons why I love it but for now I want to touch on the benefits for your skin. We are all either nearing or in Bikini Season and lots of us are working out and eating cleaner. One extra pep in your step could be adding a Peppermint Mocha Body Scrub to your morning routine. This body scrub contains coffee which not only gives your skin a natural glow but also helps tighten skin. The combination of those reduce the appearance of cellulite. I have been using it in the morning post workout. It literally wakes my skin up and I am left with brighter "glowing" skin. Not to mention how AMAZING it makes your shower smell. Now do you understand why I am so excited to share this!!! ( Also if you want to know more AMAZING benefits from caffeine on your skin, please click HERE
I already had all the ingredients in my kitchen and I just so happened to have a case of mason jars waiting to be filled. It took me about 30 minutes to complete this project. This girl loves a FREE PRINTABLE!!! I printed those labels out on card-stock and hot glued them on! Then tied a pretty white bow on it! This is an awesome gift to give away! 


In a large bowl mix all dry ingredients:
1 cup Sea Salt
2 cups of coffee grounds
3 cups of Brown Sugar
3 cups Sugar 

In another bowl mix the oils:
40 drops of Peppermint Essential Oils 
1 cup of  Baby oil

Mix the dry ingredients with the oil thoroughly. Add more oil depending on your preference. I hope that everyone gives this a try! Enjoy and bring on the Bikinis!!!! 


  1. your pic you have olive oil but you don't mention it in the it used as a substitute for baby oil? And where do you get the peppermint oil from?

    1. I thought I was going to use it but ended up just using the baby oil!!! You get the peppermint essential oil from any health store. Essential oils are awesome and there is so many different kinds!!! Thanks for commenting. I'm sorry about the confusion !

  2. Oh ok...was just making sure because I've seen some recipes online that call for the olive oil. Anyway, yours is the first one I'm gonna try. I hope it works! :)
    So the peppermint oil comes from a health food store?? Like whole foods or something like that or like a GNC? Just asking because I truly hate shopping! Lol

    Thanks so much for writing me back. I'll let you know if the scrub helps my legs...pray! ;)


Let's chit chat!
