One way I like to pamper myself is to lay in the bath and use some natural body products. I love to make my own so I know exactly what’s in them.
Here’s my favourite no tox recipe for an invigorating Coffee Skin Scrub. It’s perfect for exfoliation and managing any bubbly skin problem areas (wink wink):

Total Time: 5 minutes

Combine all ingredients

Place 1 cup of unbrewed ground coffee in the glass bowl.

Add oil

Pour in the oil you have chosen – I love to use good quality olive oil as it’s great for nourishing your skin.

Add Young Living essential oils

Drip the Grapefruit and Cypress essential oils into the coffee and oil mix, stirring gently to spread them through the mix.
Warning – DON’T just buy essential oils from the chemist or cheap shop! Often these oils have been adulterated with chemicals or watered down with other ‘nasties’.
That’s why I only use Young Living essential oils. See below to discover more.*

Place the mixture into the glass jar

When fully mixed place the delicious-smelling mixture into the glass jar.
Why glass?

Two reasons:

Firstly all plastic containers ‘shed’ – small pieces of plastic are released, especially as the plastic ages. These small plastic particles can end up in your body. That’s NOT a good thing!

Secondly, real essential oils will eat away at plastic. That’s why you should always buy them and store them in glass.

Store in a cool, dark place

This will stop your coffee skin scrub from drying out and help it to last longer

Note – if it does start to dry out, try adding a small amount of olive oil (or whatever oil you used) to revive the mix.

And if it starts to smell ‘off’ it’s time to throw it out and make a new batch. All oils will oxidise (go off) over time.

Apply in the bath or shower

Apply scrub all over in the shower a few times a week to desired areas such as thighs, belly, and arms.

Rinse off thoroughly and enjoy how soft and smooth your skin feels!

Why do I choose to exclusively use Young Living oils?

The short answer is because not all essential oils are the same! And as a qualified Clinical Aromatherapist I definitely know that’s true.
