When all else fails, take a bubble bath.

Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Scrub

Baby, it's cold outside... Warm up with the enticing aroma of cinnamon and coffee swirled together in our cinnamon swirl coffee scrub! Now you can help decrease cellulite, reduce varicose veins, and invigorate your skin with the cozy scent of cinnamon and coffee in your shower!

You will need:

2 cups coffee grounds
1/2 cup raw sugar or sea salt
2 to 3 tablespoons almond oil (or other light oil, such as grapeseed or jojoba)
1 teaspoon cinnamon, powdered
2 or 3 drops cinnamon fragrance oil (optional)

Mix these items together in a bowl. If you wish to make more cinnamon swirl coffee scrub for later use or for sharing (nudge nudge, wink wink), you can easily double the recipe.

When the scrub is complete, be sure to apply it to wet or damp skin. The best time to do this is in the shower so that you can rinse it off after application. Apply the scrub directly to your skin and rub it in circular motions with your fingers, or use a washcloth or loofah. Remember the circular motion helps to distribute the caffeine to eliminate cellulite and varicose veins.

NOTE: The cinnamon fragrance oil mentioned above can be purchased at From Nature with Love and does NOT contain Diethyl Phthalates (DEP).

WARNING: Cinnamon can cause skin irritations. Make sure not to overuse, especially if you are planning to give your homemade scrub away as a gift. If you want to make sure, put a bit of the finished product on the inside of your wrist and wait about 10 minutes. If you experience no redness or discomfort, it is safe to use.
