A ZERO-WASTE Hack for Smooth Skin

If you are like me you throw used coffee grounds away every single day. Some people put them in their garden but what to do with them in the winter?

Create a homemade coffee scrub!

This is as easy as 1, 2, FREE! This scrub is easily customizable and makes for a great gift (stocking stuffer?).


  • Coffee Grounds

  • Oil of Choice, I prefer Coconut

  • Essential Oils - optional

  • Raw Honey - optional

  1. Lay wet grounds on a sheet tray, and allow them to dry in the sun, or pop them in the oven after you cook something and its still hot. Make sure they are completely dry, so mold cannot grow.

  2. Melt 1-2tbsp of oil, and 1tsp of raw honey.

  3. Combine the melted mixture with the grounds and add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. (I personally prefer to keep mine scentless.)

  4. Store in an airtight container, and use as a body + hand scrub.

Make sure to protect your drain so it doesn't clog, and be careful of a slippery shower!

I use this scrub along with my dry brush to keep my KP at bay, and to hydrate my skin in winter. If I don't exfoliate... the moisturizer doesn't absorb!
