 DIY zero waste body scrub

The exfoliating microbeads in most commercial scrubs are made of plastic. Yes you read that right. Plastic. This plastic, often referred to as “microplastic” ends up in our oceans, causing huge complications in our natural eco system. These easy scrubs will make you squeaky clean without any of the harmful chemicals or microplastics. 

 

coffee body scrub:

  • Used coffee grounds
  • Coconut oil
  • + vanilla essence (optional)

The most simple recipe, yet super efficient and moisturising at the same time. You can make bigger batches of this, but the shelf life of the mask is not very long due to the natural ingredients. I usually just make it as i go. Make sure you rinse properly, so you get all the coffee grinds off your skin.

Enjoy the scent of your favourite essential oil and have a sweet little spa-moment to yourself.
