DIY Coffee Scrub!

Why hello there!

It’s Em back at ya with a brand new DIY. When I was younger I was always making scrubs, whether it be for lips, face, body, etc. I’m sure 99.9% of the human race loves coffee, so this coffee one is going to be the start of a long list of scrubs to come. I consider this version to be a nice body/lips exfoliator. You only need four things:

Olive oil-preferably use coconut oil, but whatever you have on-hand

Honey-provides moisture and smells great! Also keeps ingredients together

Sugar-serves as exfoliator and base for scrub

Coffee grains-Good using as is or after you used it. The great thing about this scrub is that you can recycle old grinds. Wear your coffee and drink it too! Smells great, serves as exfoliator, and wakes you up in a jiffy

For example, want it more grainy? More sugar and grains, less oil.  Liquidy? Less sugar, more oil. It’s all personal preference.

Viola! In just a couple of steps, you can have your scrub made by you from items you already have in your kitchen. I hope you try this out for yourself, and maybe even come up with your own recipes:)

Scrub on your lips for a minute, then rinse (unless you like eating coffee grains, then by all means, don’t let me stop you)

Happy creating!

Hello! My name is Emma, and I am pleased to welcome you to my blog, established in June of 2016 (which was a journey in itself). This blog has been the product of creativity, love, and countless hours designing and redesigning. A little about me: I am a graduated senior, coming from my community college's Early College Program, which entailed me receiving my AA degree after I graduated high school! In my high school career, I had been Captain for four years on the girl's JV and varsity volleyball team, became Vice President of our chapter of Technology Student Association, Historian of both the National Honor Society and Science National Honor Society, and received Gold and Silver Keys for the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for my photography. Outside of school, I was involved in my local youth groups for seven years (four mission trips down!), had the opportunity to travel to Washington, DC to attend the Washington Journalism and Media conference, and work at an independent living elderly home. In February 2019, I got accepted to the University of Florida (Go Gators!), and look forward to spending my next four years learning about business and journalism. I play guitar, write, and take/edit pictures in my free time, and absolutely love spending quality time with my friends and family. This is a place where I can talk about a variety of topics, from lifestyle, to faith, fashion, and personal subjects. What's in a name? That, my friends, is an easy answer. I have always been quite observant, and in recent years, especially within myself. Introspective means to be "inward-looking," and for me, that's just the simple truth. For this blog, it allows you a glimpse into everything and anything I come across, whether it be about life, fashion, or travel! This is the place to feel included. Caio! -Em
