Edible Coffee Body Scrub Bar – DIY | EASY | ZERO WASTE

Introducing my new and improved body scrub!

SO delicious you will want to eat these, and you can! Made entirely of edible ingredients you will find in your kitchen! It is basically chocolate + fresh coffee. Two very delicious things in my opinion.

I use this bar a couple of times a week in the shower to exfoliate and deeply moisturize my skin. My skin feels so soft and amazing afterward and I find it keeps it moisturised for longer.

Super stoked with this recipe! I hope you love it too!


Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Makes approx. 16 x 30ml bars



250g cacao butter, grated or finely chopped

1/2 cup coffee grounds, espresso grind

1/4 cup coconut sugar

1 tsp vanilla powder (optional)


Gently melt the cacao butter in a double boiler on low heat until a liquid is formed.



Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature before adding in all remaining ingredients and stirring well.



Pour mixture into mini muffin molds (I find silicone works well). Place in freezer to set.




Store bars in the refrigerator in an airtight container.



To use: gently massage the bar over damp skin, avoiding your face and neck, rinse well and pat dry.


You could also add a couple of drops of essential oil suitable for topical use to this mixture before stirring too.

Some I love:

  • Lavender
  • Frankincense
  • Peppermint (for some invigoration)

    How much coconut oil do you use? Thanks

    1. Harry says:

      I don’t use coconut oil in this recipe, Kirsten. In one of the trials I did and I found the bar broke down too quickly and melted in the heat from the shower. 🙂

    Can you use shea butter instead of cocao butter? I have a huge tub I am trying to use up 🙂

    1. Harry says:

      Hi Mel, sorry for the late reply. You can definitely use shea butter instead – great idea! Just make sure you store it in a container in a cool space as it will melt if it is stored above room temperature. Good luck and let me know how you get on 🙂 🙂
