I’ve been making my own bath products for a while now. My husband and I actually make soap and body products to sell locally. I’m also someone who likes being as frugal as possible. When I make coffee I save the grounds and dry them out to add to soap and body scrubs. I also throw a lot of the grounds in our compost pile too. Since it is getting hot here in Virginia I’ve been making a lot of cold brew coffee concentrate but it’s leaving me with a lot of left over grounds. So I make a few large batches of scrub and keep some for us and give the rest away as gifts. It’s super simple and easy to do.
Here is what I need:
1 cup used, dried coffee grounds- I spread the used grounds on a baking sheet and leave it out on the counter overnight to dry
1/2 cup course dead sea salt
1/4 cup coconut oil- melted
10 drops essential oil- optional I use some sweet orange or cinnamon most often
Just mix all ingredients together and store in airtight jars.
I keep mine for about 1 week in the sealed jars. In warmer weather I keep it in the fridge. Just as a note- I scrub down in the tub then try to collect any large, stray clumps of scrub and toss it in the trash before I turn on the water to rinse off. Also, make sure to wipe out the tub afterwards as the coconut oil can make the tub slippery.
