Easy DIY Coffee Lovers Sugar Body Scrub is a super simple recipe to make for yourself or for gifts for all your coffee-loving friends.
I have always loved the smell of freshly brewed coffee. It’s one of my favorite scents in the world.
Not only does coffee smell great, but the grounds are loaded with antioxidants, helps protect against the sun’s rays, and enhance circulation.

Here’s the DIY Coffee Lovers Sugar Scrub Recipe:
This recipe makes approximately two cups of sugar scrub. Pick jars with lids that will fit two cups of scrub easily.
Make sure you don’t go overboard in the amount of coffee grounds you use. (Other recipes use way more coffee grounds, and more significant amounts tend to clog drains. That defeats the purpose of saving money-making our own products, don’t you think?)
