DIY Bath Scrub with coffee beans 

 

I loveee coffee and its aroma so much that i keep coffee beans in a small pouch in my handbag / desk  . Coffee aroma picks me up when i am low . I have been using this body scrub from a long time and benefited in many ways . The story behind its discovery was , We have filter coffee daily prepared using the traditional filter with coffee powder and hot water .  The coffee powder was discarded  to rose plants  so that  it acts as manure ( Part of my mom’s daily tasks ) . yes , my whole family is into recycling and eco friendly types 😀 :-P  . So   on my part , i have started using it as body scrub along with few other ingredients to get maximum benefit . Here goes .

Ingredients :

  • 1 bowl of coffee beans paste / coffee powder .
  • 1 spoon of Besan / Gram flour
  • 1 spoon of honey
  • 1 spoon of Aloe vera gel
  • 1 spoon of Curd / Yogurt

On a closing note , I am very happy with my skin after using this body scrub which can be made at a fraction of cost than regular body scrubs  with no harmful chemicals . It solved my problem of dark  rough knees and  elbows .  Hope everyone benefits from this body scrub .
