Cinnamon-Swirl Coffee Scrub

Christmas is three days away and I’m still scrambling to get everything together and wrapped in time. Does it sound familiar? Are you still looking for a quick gift? Well, I’ve got the perfect one. Cinnamon-Swirl Coffee Scrub! Everyone loves homemade gifts and with the success of last year’s Candy Cane Sugar Scrub, I decided to gift another bath-time goody this Christmas. This scrub is wonderful for hostesses, secretaries, bosses, assistants at your doctor’s office, teachers, neighbors and shower favors. The recipe even doubles like a charm! Perfect, right?

Cinnamon-Swirl Coffee Scrub 2

Cinnamon-Swirl Coffee Scrub

2 c coffee grounds, unbrewed
1/2 c Turbinado sugar
6 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2-3 drops cinnamon fragrance oil
2 (0.5 ltr) glass containers with lid

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together. Using a spatula, transfer mix into the container and secure lid. Tie a ribbon and a tag on to the jar with these instructions: “Scoop a teaspoon or two of the scrub on your hands and gently massage in circular motions onto your skin. Leave on for 3 to 4 minutes before thoroughly rinsing. The scrub will tighten a bit on your skin.”

This might sound really dumb but are the coffee grounds suppose to unbrewed? Thanks!

Not dumb at all! But, yes, the grounds should not be brewed. 🙂

What a great idea! Sounds like the perfect gift if I was on the receiving end 😛

Great idea for gifts. Too late for me this year, but next year for sure.

What is the shelf life of this product?

Sorry to say that I don’t know, Declan. I always use it fairly quickly and there’s never any left! 🙂
