Mocha Scrub

1 cup ground coffee
1/2 cup organic sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
1.75 ounces of melted cocoa butter

Four 4 ounce sterile jars to store the scrub 
Labels to list ingredients, instructions, and the date you made the scrub.

Begin by combining the coffee with the sugars. 
In this case, there’s no need to worry about the sugar content because the product will be rinsed off, preventing absorption. 
You can sub all organic sugar if you prefer, but the brown sugar lends a depth to the final aroma. 

In a separate bowl, mix the melted cocoa butter with the coconut oil and the grapeseed oil. 
The heat from the cocoa butter should melt the coconut oil. If it does not, warm it gently until it is all liquid. 

Pour this over the powdered exfoliants.

Combine until all of the oils and exfoliants are thoroughly mixed. 
At this point, you can add 8-12 drops of peppermint essential oil for a more invigorating minty mocha scrub if you prefer. 
Mix well.

Package the scrub in 4 ounce containers. 
While glass jars are pretty, keep in mind that this moisture laden scrub is going to be slippery, so plastic containers are safer for gift-giving. Enjoy!
