Coffee Sugar Scrub

Here is a terrific holiday gift for the coffee lover in your life that also needs a little bit of pampering.  This simple Coffee Sugar Scrub puts to use your favorite ground coffee grounds with a few other simple items on hand in your home to create a luscious scrub.  Coffee grounds are a great way to exfoliate and the “wake up” smell is perfect to get your day started on a bright note.  Although the recipe below doesn’t specify specific coffee I highly recommend using one of your favorite flavored coffees for a little extra kick.  A rich vanilla or hazelnut coffee ground will add just enough extra warmth of scent to this scrub that will be pleasing to everyone.



  • 1/2 cup Ground Coffee
  • 1/2 cup Used Ground Coffee
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon


  • Pour sugar and coffee grounds into medium sized bowl.
  • Mix in coconut oil (add more if you like a wet consistency).
  • Add cinnamon and mix well.
  • Place mixture in the jar.
  • Add this Cute Coffee Sugar Scrub Label if desired


We love this variation on a simple sugar scrub that can be easily customized for your coffee loving friend for a perfect holiday gift.  With simple inexpensive decorative clear plastic jars or containers and a few small ribbon embellishments you can easily customize this scrub into a unique and personalized gift for anyone on your list.  Create a coffee lovers gift basket complete with this great scrub, a small bag of specialty roast coffee, a new custom holiday mug, perhaps a few packets of creamer, sweetener and a beautiful spoon to stir.  Great coffee sugar scrub like this proves that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to create a gift everyone would love to have this holiday season.
