Coffee Sugar Scrub Recipe {homemade gift idea}

Coffee sugar scrubs are easy to make, package adorably and are good for your skin!  Homemade scrubs are one of the best gifts ever!  They are my new latest craze and after the recent success of my Lemon Sugar Scrub for Mother’s Day gifts I decided that a Coffee Scrub for Teacher Appreciation was the perfect crafty gift.

Coffee Scrub Recipe

I found the recipe for this coffee scrub on A Cup of Mo.  The recipe was super simple.  I added nutmeg to my recipe, however.   I can’t stress enough how easy this recipe was to make.     Plus, the sugar scrubs can be used on the hands, feet and body.  I love to use sugar scrubs in the shower because they are such great exfoliators and the hot water dissolves the sugar crystals before they can be too abrasive.

  • Decorate Jar ~ {or don’t if you are keeping for yourself and decorations are not necessary} I used embellishments I had at home.  A ribbon and felt flowers I had in my craft supply closet and then made a tag using a punch I have.  It was super easy and the whole project took me a total of 20 minutes including a run to the store for coffee.  It’s THAT easy.

That’s it!  The Coffe Scrub is read to use or give!
