This invigorating, aromatic coffee scrub made with fresh Indonesian coffee beans awakens the senses as it exfoliates and cleanses.

Make your own cellulite treatment with caffeinated coffee grounds that works beautifully. Here’s how:
Ingredients: ¼ cup warm used coffee grounds, 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil, Plastic Wrap
The used grounds work better if they’re warm
1. Put some newspaper on the floor of your bathroom, or stand in the shower
2. Mix about a quarter-cup of warm used coffee grounds with a tablespoon or so of olive oil. Stand on the paper and apply the coffee mixture to your cellulite areas using your hands or a loofah mitt. Don’t worry if a lot of the coffee mixture falls to the floor; enough will stick to your skin to do the trick.
3. Wrap the area in plastic wrap and allow to remain on for several minutes.
4. Remove wrap and brush off excess coffee mixture. Shower with warm water.
5. This procedure is most effective when repeated twice a week.
(As with any home recipe, check a small area to insure you do not have a sensitivity, do not use if you have any contraindications)
