Your NEW Invigorating Morning Shower

Good Thursday Morning!!!! I found this fabulous body scrub sitting in my email inbox!! I am using my coffee grounds from this morning to make it! ENJOY! :>

body and soul

Try this fabulous morning wake-up scrub made with coffee and natural scents! Used in high-end spas around the globe - why not add it to your regimen!!

This recipe is created with coffee and peppermint -- known in aromatherapy for its mentally stimulating, energizing properties. Along with raw sugar and olive oil to exfoliate and moisturize.

This recipie makes enough for 2-3 applications:

Tools and Materials:

1/4 cup olive oil

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 cup pure turbinado sugar

15 drops peppermint essential oil (Mentha piperita)

1/2 cup used coffee grounds from a freshly brewed pot

Wake-Up Scrub How-To:

1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl; using a fork, thoroughly blend. Transfer the scrub to a wide mouthed jar, and store in a cool place until ready to use. The scrub will keep for one to two weeks, longer if refrigerated.
2. While showering, apply handfuls of the coffee scrub to wet skin in circular motions, starting at the feet and working up. The scrub contains oil, so it's best to do this over a rubber mat to avoid slipping. Pay particular attention to rough spots such as heels, ankles, knees, and elbows.
3. After scrubbing, cleanse skin as usual using a mild natural soap or body wash. Pat skin dry with a fluffy towel, and follow with lotion to seal in the moisture.
