When it comes to winding down for the evening, self-care in the form of at-home spa time is one of the best things you can do for your mental health .

Commercial Coffee Scrubs vs Homemade Scrub Benefits
In the last ten years, face and body scrubs have become very popular beauty products. Many women think you have to buy expensive brands like ‘Frank Body Scrub’ to get the benefits. However, it’s really easy to make them at home, and by adding a few key ingredients, you can make them even better for your health than commercial brands.
It’s easy to make a batch once a week and keep it in the fridge for when you need a self-care treat at the end of a busy day. Instead of reaching for ice cream, grab this delicious scrub for some true self-love.
This is our most loved recipe direct from the Bali Spa at Goddess Retreats.
Coconut coffee scrub ingredients:
2 Tablespoons of ground coffee

Coconut Coffee Scrub Method:

– Soften the coconut oil in the microwave or at room temperature if you don’t live in a cold place.
-Mix all the ingredients together and put them in a bottle that can be used in the shower. Depending on how you like it, you can add more coffee or more oil.
– Use it in the shower and scrub the parts of your body that need exfoliating in a circular motion.
– Wash and dry yourself with a towel.
You will notice how smooth, healthy and moisturized your skin feels immediately.
The Health Benefits of Coconut Coffee Scrub
You can use a coffee scrub in the morning or in the evening to get rid of dull, dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. This makes your skin brighter and makes you feel more awake and refreshed. Cellulite can also be less noticeable with coffee grounds because they make the skin plumper. Scrubbing your body is enough to improve circulation because it gets the blood moving through your veins.
Coffee’s antioxidant properties can help combat fine lines and wrinkles and help repair sun damage. Whether it’s sun spots, freckles, or hyperpigmentation, a coffee scrub can help new cell turnover and rid your skin of those unwanted spots.
The antioxidants in coffee can help fight fine lines and wrinkles and fix damage from the sun. If you have sun spots, freckles, or hyperpigmentation, a coffee scrub can help your skin make new cells and get rid of those spots.
While the oils moisturise (so you don’t have to do it afterward—that how’s for saving time?) Medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil also have antimicrobial properties that keep harmful bacteria from getting into the skin.
Add Essential Oil and Spices for Powerful Health Benefits.
Cinnamon powder not only smells great, but it is also thought to help people see things in a more positive and joyful way. This makes it a very beneficial spice for people with depression, anxiety, or pessimistic feelings. It is also effective against viruses, bacteria, and fungi.
Nutmeg essential oil is often used in aromatherapy and medicine to treat muscle aches and cramps, stomach problems, pain, bad breath, insomnia, and anxiety.
Clove oil helps stop the loss of tone in the skin and keeps fine lines and wrinkles from showing up. It is a strong anti-aging substance that is found in most cosmetics. It gets rid of dead skin cells and improves blood flow, which makes the skin look younger and healthier.
