How To Make Cellulite Body Scrub

Most coffee drinkers just can't seem to get things started in the morning without a cup of java; however, coffee has a number of external uses that are easy to overlook. For example, because of its natural oils and acids as well as its caffeine content, it makes a wonderful remedy against cellulite. If you love coffee, you will love this body scrub.

How To Make Cellulite Body Scrub

Things You'll Need
  • 1/4 cup fresh, whole organic coffee beans
  • Coffee grinder
  • Small mixing bowl
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup sweet almond oil
  • 2 drops of vanilla extract
  • 2 drops vanilla essential oil
  • Sealable container

Use fresh, whole organic coffee beans when making your cellulite body scrub, as it is the best source of antioxidants, acids, oils and caffeine. Grind 1/4 cup of beans finely and tap them into a bowl.

Add 3/4 cups of brown sugar to the coffee grounds and then stir in 1 cup of sweet almond oil. Mix the ingredients until it creates a consistent loose paste and then add 2 drops of vanilla extract and 2 drops of vanilla essential oil.

Mix the ingredients once again. If you would like more scent, feel free to add it now. If the paste seems dry, add a splash more almond oil until it all sticks together in a paste. Transfer your scrub into a sealable container and store in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.

Apply your cellulite body scrub in the shower before bathing. Massage the skin using gentle circular motions and then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Your coffee body scrub is gentle enough to use everyday, and you should see noticeable results in just a week or two.
