[ Spa Recipe: Lavender Coffee Facial Scrub ] ~ from Monterey Bay Herb Co
lavender coffee facial scrub
rich and luxurious

This scrub smells as rich and luxurious as it looks. If you would prefer a creamier consistency for hands, use coconut oil in place of sweet almond. It will start to soften as soon as you start mixing and even more once it meets your skin.

½ cup sweet almond oil
¼ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup finely ground coffee
2 tablespoons dried, whole lavender flowers
4-6 drops lavender essential oil

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir to blend. Scoop into a container with a tight-fitting lid. To use, rub a small amount onto wet skin using gentle circular motions. Rinse well with warm water.
