It’s Organic Beauty Week – pamper yourself with a Coffee Scrub!

It’s Organic Beauty Week (19th to 25th of September) and we’ve discovered the best way to use up our leftover organic coffee grinds while pampering yourself (because you deserve it!). Say hello to our Organic Exfoliating Percol Coffee Scrub!Caffeine has long been known to have positive effects on your skin when applied topically, including tightening and reducing puffiness. So it makes sense that ground coffee would be the perfect ingredient for a DIY exfoliating body scrub.Here’s how we make ours:Once you’ve finished your morning cafetiere of organic ground coffee, drain excess water, scoop the grinds out and put them in a bowl.Mix with two tablespoons of organic coconut oil. We think it's easiest to mix straight after you’ve finished your coffee, as the warm grinds help to melt the coconut oil. Play around with ratios to get the consistency you find easiest to use, you can always add more coffee or oil.  Once you're happy with the consistency, it's ready to use! Rub in circular motions on damp, but not wet skin, for best results.Give it a try, trust us – your skin will thank you for it!We have a great selection of organic coffees in our range; try Pick of the Crop instant coffee, Americano All-Day and Lively Latino ground coffees, Lively Latino whole beans and our Ethiopia Espresso Nespresso compatible and (compostable!) coffee capsules.
