DIY Coffee & Red Mandarin Body Scrub

There’s nothing better than making your own body scrub and having results better than store brought products.

Ground coffee is great to exfoliate and remove the dead skin cells, help boost circulation to the skin and leave fresh bright skin for a glowing look.

Red Mandarin essential oil boosts the cleansing benefits, the aroma helps with feelings of stress or sadness. It also helps with boosting your glowing skin but because it is photo sensitive, I use this scrub at night.
You can use other essential oils. Any citrus oil will help with cleansing and toning. There are some oils such as cypress, frankincense and copaiba that can help with any sensitive skin issues or inflamed skin.
For circulation support, cinnamon, peppermint or black pepper are great.

I love to add sold coconut oil to this recipe!
It makes the scrub gentler and helps with dryness. After you wash the scrub off you’ll notice your skin feels moisturised. This is from the coconut oil, but it doesn’t prevent the coffee removing any of the dead skin.


  • 1 & 1/2 tbs organic ground coffee
  • 1 tbs organic coconut oil
  • 2-4 drops of doTERRA red mandarin essential oil (or an oil of your choice)

Mix all in a bowl and scrub away.
