While spaing in Costa Rica a few years ago, I experienced my first Coffee Body Scrub and it was coffee heavenly!

Here’s an easy at home spa recipe you can try, Costa Rica not included. Not a do it yourself-er? Visit the spa for a relaxing sugar scrub.

1 cup ground coffee
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
4 drops peppermint or spearmint essential oil (optional)

Mix all ingredients together. Moistened your skin in the shower and  rub the coffee mixture onto your skin. Remember to pay attention to dry spots like elbows and  knees. Rinse off, pat skin dry, and apply your favorite body lotion. Leftovers? Keep in a jar for  2 weeks.
