I’ve always loved putting together DIY gifts for my family and friends during the holidays. This year, I decided to stay away from edible gifts and do something a little more healthy. This DIY coffee scrub has been one of my favorite things this year. It’s the perfect mix of indulgent and healthy for your skin.
What makes this scrub so perfect is that every ingredient has a special benefit. The coffee acts as a natural detox. The coconut oil acts as a moisturizer, the ground cinnamon acts as a natural antioxidant, and the coconut sugar acts as a gentle exfoliant that contains trace amounts of zinc and iron.
DIY Coffee Scrub
It is so perfect to incorporate into your nighttime routine. The coffee scrub is a great way to remove dead skin cells. I recommend using this in the shower or bath at night. Then applying moisturizer and going to bed in a cozy and fluffy robe. You will wake up the next morning with glowing and renewed skin.
Now of course, with all that being said, this would make the perfect gift for anyone on your list. It’s something the whole family will love. Let’s jump into the recipe shall we.

DIY Coffee Scrub
- 1/2 cup ground coffee
- 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and transfer the scrub to a mason jar with a tight lid.
- If you are gifting this scrub, you can place a small piece of parchment paper over the jar before fighting the lid in order to prevent any leaks.
- Another tip if you are gifting this coffee scrub is to put a tag on the jar with the date it was made and a “use by” date. This scrub will last for up to two months.
