DIY Spa Treatment: Coffee Clove Body Scrub

Does it say something about my lifestyle that in all of these DIYs, the only thing I am apprehensive about is wasting coffee? Luckily, what I came up with is not wasteful at all but instead a delicious body scrub that works as well as it smells. Also, instead of mixing it up in a bowl like I have in the past, I washed out a tub of Kerastase Masquintense. So much environmental responsibility in one post!

For ingredients and instructions,

.

Here's what you'll need:

    3/4 cup coffee beans
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    2 tablespoons vanilla extract
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    1 teaspoon ground cloves

Step 1: Put coffee beans, powdered clove and brown sugar in a coffee grinder.
Step 2: Grind coarsely, put in empty tub or Tupperware container and mix a little more.
Step 3: Add vanilla and oil and mix. Feel free to add more olive oil, but do it slowly, as it's easy to go overboard!

By being able to control the sizes of the particles in the scrub, you decide how rough you want it. The oil really does the trick in terms of keeping your limbs smooth. I shaved after using it, and my legs are super-smooth and soft, so don't be afraid to keep it a little chunky.

I modified the recipe a bit...I used a bit more oil and added 2 tbsp of oatmeal and a tbsp of slivered almonds to the grinder. I also used alba botanicals kukui nut body oil instead of olive oil and pumpkin spice flavored coffee beans to give it an extra good smell...mmmmm.
