Add the coffee grounds to the coconut oil and stir well.

Set aside, stirring as it hardens for an even mix of coconut and coffee grounds.

Use as needed.


  • I like to store this in a glass wide mouth mason jar. It's easy to scoop out and stays fresher longer.
  • Store in a cool place or refrigerate.

I like to make this in small batches so that it's always fresh.

Next, we'll talk about shower use and Safety

  • Rub over entire body in circular motions to stimulate blood flow. Please note, this natural scrub is not meant for facial skin
  • Pay close attention to elbows and knees and other areas where you may have rough skin.

For Shower Use

***If you use this in the shower please be careful and use caution.  Coconut Oil is VERY slippery so stand on a bath mat, towel or other NON-SLIPPERY surface while using and rinse your shower/bathtub well after use.  

Tips and Benefits for Getting the Best Results

  • This is not meant for everyday use or for use on sensitive skin.
  • A little goes a long way - start with a small scoop and use more as needed.
  • If flaky skin is a concern, give this a try to lessen the flakiness and to encourage soft skin.
  • As with most skin care products and conventional body scrubs test on a small area of our skin first to check for skin irritation.
  • Organic scrubs like this one are among my top picks to help get rid of dull skin, shed dead cells, and may also be helpful in preventing ingrown hairs.

    I've tried a coffee sugar scrub before and they work so well to clean hands and nails. Love the smell of it, too! Your recipe looks good

  6. Sharon Hines says:

    I feel the exact same way about gloves and gardening and manicures! This coconut scrub sounds divine. Do you think it would work with unused coffee grounds?

    1. Mary Beth says:

      I think it would work just as well with unused grounds, Sharon. 🙂

  7. You're so clever MB! Great idea!

  8. heather meads says:

    Thanks for the recipe, I haven't heard of using coffee but will give it a try! Thanks and Pinned!!

    1. Mary Beth says:

      Thank you, Heather!

  9. Two of my favorite scents together. And I bet it works really well. Thanks for the info Mary Beth. Pinned for Christmas Gifts 🙂

  10. Do I need to worry about the oil going down the drain at all?! Should I be worried it would harden?!?!

    1. Mary Beth says:

      A little goes a long way with this scrub. I've been using it on my hands for a while now without any problems with my drain. I do use hot water at the end to rinse everything down the drain but if this is something that concerns you, you could rub it on your hands while outside and rinse off with a hose or water from a pitcher. 🙂
