All-Natural Coffee Body Scrub Recipe by Indie Lee & Co

I love to whip up homemade bath and body recipes and today's recipe was sent over to us by the great folks at Indie Lee & Co. I love the aroma of coffee and her recipe for this all-natural body scrub utilizes America's favorite beverage, coffee!

It’s impossible to remove cellulite completely, however, there are things we can do to reduce its appearance. Indie Lee, founder of the all-natural skincare line Indie Lee & Co, shares one of her at-home recipes for an all-natural scrub containing her favorite ingredient: coffee. The caffeine works to dehydrate fat cells and when broken down, acts as a natural exfoliant.

What You Need:
· ½ ounce of sweet almond oil
· 2 tablespoons coffee grinds (espresso roast)
· 5 tablespoons coconut oil
· ¾ cup of arrowroot powder (natural alternative to talc powder) 

How to Make It:
1. Combine coffee grinds and sweet almond oil in a large bowl and mix.
2. Add coconut oil and mix well.
3. Fold in the arrowroot powder. Make sure all the coconut clumps are gone.

*Indie Tip: She likes to keep the mixture refrigerated for a day to make it easier to scoop out, like butter.
