Our Mermaid Cove Recipe: Coffee Body Scrub
✨ 1/4 cup of organic coffee
✨ 1 teaspoon of avocado oil or coconut oil
✨ 3-4 drops of favourite essential oil (Rose Geranium it is for us!)
✨ Mix all ingredients and massage onto damp skin
The anti-inflammatory properties in coffee are beneficial to reducing redness & encouraging an even skin tone. The caffeine in coffee is also loaded with antioxidants, which help to fight the signs of premature skin ageing.
Avocado oil is nourishing and very moisturising - allowing your skin to soften when used regularly. Avocado oil doesn't harden in colder weather and is therefore a good choice for winter. Coconut oil has just as much goodness & smells amazing! However, it hardens below 25C and is therefore easier to work with in the summer months.
We recommend you pick an essential oil that is best suited to the condition of your skin at the moment (we will do a post about this soon). Rose Geranium is perfect for dry skin and the scent is beautiful! It's also a highly suitable essential oil if you want to reduce the appearance of scars.
Enjoy Mermaids! 🐚
Note: Please check with a professional aromatherapist or your doctor if you are pregnant/breastfeeding and want to use essential oils.
