DIY Self-Care Products

It's a wonderful experience to be able to make some self care products using mostly ingredients found in the kitchen.

Below I have two recipes. A body scrub and a bath soak.

This body scrub will leave your skin refreshed and soft.

Coffee is known to have skin brightening qualities and using up coffee grinds is a great way of reusing waste.

Vanilla Coffee Body Scrub


3/4 cup brown sugar

5 tsp ground coffee

1 tbsp almond oil

10 drops vanilla essential oil


Place some used dried coffee grinds in a bowl with the sugar.

Mix together and add the oil and essential oil.

Mix together and place in a small sterilised jar.

Use in the shower as a scrub for your body.

This scrub should last for a few months.
