This is probably one of my most used creations and I have gotten the best feedback on it from people who I have gifted it to. It is perfect for dry winter skin or for people who tend to scratch the skin off their legs while sleeping(I’m guilty of that one myself). It’s great for morning showers, the smell of coffee and caffeine absorbing into the skin is soothing and refreshing at the same time. For this recipe the amount of oil vs sugar can be played with… find what works best for you. I prefer enough coconut oil that it is the consistency of a thick lotion.

2 oz sugar(white or brown)

2 oz coffee infused coconut oil

2 tbs coffee grounds(optional)

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon(or pumpkin pie spice)

Heat coconut oil just until it becomes a liquid, add all ingredients and mix well. Pour into a clean container with an air tight lid. Enjoy thoroughly.
