But I am.
There are so many reasons why. They are so easy to make, you can make them with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry & they leave you skin so silky smooth.
I have been experimenting with sugar scrubs, but was really keen to make a cellulite busting scrub, so you know it just has to have coffee in it. Coffee is one of the biggest buzz words in the anti-cellulite world.
So we decided to make a coffee scrub & include cellulite busting essential oils for that added detoxification. But you can make this scrub with no essential oils & it will still work a treat.
We added Juniper Berry essential oil for its de-toxifying effect, it’s also renowned for reducing fluid retention & activating new tissue growth, perfect for giving cellulite the boot. We also added Grapefruit Essential oil for removing toxins & because it’s rich in bromelain a strong anti-inflammatory that will help to melt those fat deposits away. The Sweet Orange oil helps to increase circulation & blood flow to the area. Giving our scrub super anti-cellulite powers
We also added a touch of sugar for the glycol acid thats present in sugar, which will help to detoxify & un-clog pores at a deeper level so you get super silky smooth skin.
Cellulite Busting Coffee Scrub a’la Mama Going Natural
- 1 cup ground coffee beans
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup sweet almond oil
- 10 drops Juniper Berry essential oil
- 20 drops sweet orange essential oil
- 20 drops grapefruit essential oil
Add your sugar (I use white sugar as I feel the coffee beans already have enough scrub factor, but if you want a super scrub use Raw Sugar & for a softer scrub use brown sugar).
Stir in your sweet almond oil & your essential oils. Feel free to replace the almond oil with olive oil or coconut oil if that’s what you have on hand.
Place in a pretty jar & get ready to have “wake me up” scented showers.
Simply grab a handful of your scrub & gently rub it into your backside & legs, leave it on for a few minutes so that the coffee & glycol acid present in the sugar can penetrate your skin & do their job. Rinse off with warm water & enjoy smooth, silky skin that smells so so good
