The Secret Spa in Your Kitchen - Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Scrub

Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Scrub

2 cups coffee grounds
1/2 cup raw sugar or sea salt
2-3 tablespoons almond oil (or grapeseed oil)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2-3 drops cinnamon fragrance oil (optional)

Mix items together in a bowl. Apply to wet or damp skin. The best time to do this is in the shower so that you can rinse it off after application. Apply the scrub directly to your skin and rub it in circular motions with your fingers or washcloth. *The circular motions helps to distribute the caffeine to eliminate cellulite or varicose veins.

**Warning! Cinnamon can cause skin irritations. Make sure not to overuse. If you want to make sure, put a bit of the finished product on the inside of your wrist and wait about 10 minutes. If you experience no redness or irritation, it is safe to use.**
