Homemade Coffee Body Scrub

  • 4 oz finely ground organic coffee beans
  • 1 TBSP Cardamom seeds or 24 drops cardamom essential oil
  • 1 TBSP Cacao Nibs
  • 4 oz Sea salt or Dead sea salts
  • 2-3 oz jojoba oil
  • 4 drops nutmeg essential oil


I came across this recipe on the “back side” of Maui in an isolated little town called Kipahulu . . . a wonderful beautiful place filled with waterfalls. This little stand, Laulima, used to also make smoothies for the few tourists that wandered around the back side — there was not any electricity (at one time -then …) so you had to petal a bike for them to run the blender . . . Even though the bike is no longer there, if you ever get to Kipahulu it is a great little spot.

Stir together in a half pint jar the coffee grounds, cardamom seeds, cacao nibs, salt — and don’f forget the Love.  Blend together your essential oils then add to jojoba.  Combine coffee/salt mixture with oil and stir well.  Stores for 2 weeks or more right in your shower or bath.
