Exfoliation helps to eliminate any dead skin, dirt and pollution that are left on our skin. It leaves our skin clear, clean and soft. What if you could make your own exfoliants at home without having to worry about chemicals or a really high price but instead with natural, healthy ingredients?

  1. 1 small mason jar
  2. 1 cup organic ground coffee
  3. 1 cup organic brown sugar
  4. ½ cup of coconut oil
  5. 5 drops of ylang ylang essential oil
  6. 6 drops of orange essential oil
  7. 3 drops of lavender essential oil
  8. 3 drops of peppermint essential oil


Melt the coconut oil and allow it to cool but not solidify. Mix the rest of the ingredients in with the coconut oil before pouring the mix in your mason jar. The ground coffee will give your skin a youthful radiance while the coconut oil will hydrate your skin with essential fatty acids. The peppermint will help to circulate more blood in your skin, helping to improve the complexion and the essential oils chosen will clean, tone, smooth and even out your skin. The bitterness of the coffee grounds will be countered with the sweetness of the coconut oil and the delicate yet noticeable smell of the selected essential oils, which complement each other in both scent and function.
