Ahoy! It's Maritime Melissa here once again with Tuesday's lifestyle post and today I'll be showing you how to make an amazing body scrub with only 4 simple ingredients that you can find in your kitchen cupboard. I've decided to go for a coffee and vanilla scented scrub - you could be adventurous and try out different ingredients though. This scrub will leave your skin feeling incredibly smooth and would make a lovely little gift for a family member or friend! What you will need:
- Ground Coffee - Olive Oil ( you could also use Coconut Oil or Shea Butter) - Brown Sugar - Vanilla Essence
This scrub is super simple to make! Start off by taking 2 cups of the brown sugar and a few table spoons of coffee - you could add less or add more, it's up to your personal preference. Not only will adding coffee make the scrub smell delicious, coffee is also said to help reduce cellulite so it has benefits for you skin too.
Mix them together in the bowl, add the olive oil until you get the right consistency that you want - I added quite a lot so that it has a nice moisturising effect. Add a dash of vanilla essence and then mix it together - I ended up ditching the wooden spoon and used my hands instead as it easier.
All you need to do now is pour it into a jar and you are good to go! I told you it was simple! You could decorate the jar using cute ribbons, lace, buttons etc if you are feeling extra creative.
