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

 

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)

    This is so great! I have made a coffee facial mask in the past but I can’t wait to try this, thanks Harriet

    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. 🙂

    Hi Harry.
    Your recipe in the method part, states to mix in coconut oil but it’s not listed in the ingredients.
    Which is correct?

    1. Harry says:

      I tried both Debbie. This recipe has no coconut oil, but add a little if you wish. Obviously it will be more likely to melt quickly in the shower or bath though!
      Enjoy!
