4. Empty Jar or container to store the scrub in.
1. Measure out the dry ingredients, being the coffee grounds and sugar or salt, and combine them into a bowl.
2. If your coconut oil is solid in the jar, melt the 6 tablespoons in the microwave for a few seconds first. Add the coconut oil to the dry ingredients mixture.
3.Make sure to mix well! Until all ingredients are fully combined.
4. Transfer the contents of the coffee scrub from your bowl to the empty jar or container of your choice. Koffee Kult suggests using one that is waterproof so the contents do not get wet when you bring them into the shower.
5. Before getting into the shower, you can use a shower brush to exfoliate your skin and stimulate blood flow.
6. When in the shower, apply the coffee scrub to the areas on your skin with cellulite. Massage in a circular motion, soft and smoothly.
7. Be wary of the coffee grounds in your shower drain. Make sure you are rinsing your shower with hot water to allow the grounds to flow down your drain without clogging it.
