"Don't drink it! Roll in it!"
Over Christmas we decided to make a handmade gift. Lovely.
However, this act alone could have been disastrous!
Friends and dignity could have been lost as well as then having to live through the shame of receiving awkward "it's the thought that counts" pity stares .
Disregarding all of that and forging ahead, I had come across a crazy stash of coffee pods not being used and consequently just sitting in a lonely dark cupboard. I wanted to find a way that we could use the coffee but not in the usual mouth consuming way.
I spent the next day on Pinterest trying to find ideas (and got eaten by the Pinterest vortex). For those of you who don’t know, the vortex is a phenomenon that sucks you in and doesn’t let you out until you’ve wasted 5 hours looking at things that are completely irrelevant to the cause eg. A hairstyle that you'll never have the balls to actually get, crazy make up tutorials on contouring and how to decorate the English country manor that you don't own.
Finally I found some focus and stumbled upon the easiest recipe of all time for Coffee Body Scrub. Then it was time to get our hands dirty.
1. 1 Cup ground coffee.
Because they were in pods, we had the awesome task of individually cutting each one open. The towel was ready to be thrown...
2. 1 Cup sugar or salt.
Wolf & Bear are always extra, so we used both! Bosh!
3. 1/2 Cup coconut oil.
Bought this in a massive jar because there are so many incredible benefits of coconut oil. Check out this linkto see more uses of this wonder serum.
4. 1/2 Tablespoon cinnamon (optional).
If you've read our Chutney Recipe post, you will have gathered that we're pretty careless with ingredients.
5. 1 Tablespoon vanilla (optional).
No one wants to be Vanilla!
Melt coconut oil and allow it to cool but not solidify.
Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container or mason jar.
Use 1-2 times a week (or every day if you like).
We increased the above by 3 in order to make 20+ little jars of love.
