Olive Oil & Coffee Scrub

Recycled coffee grounds

1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil


Blend enough olive oil with recycled coffee grounds to develop a smooth paste. For a scrubbier-scrub, mix by hand. For a less abrasive scrub, blend with mortar and pestle.

Gently massage over problem areas before showering. Rinse clean.

For a stronger treatment, use freshly ground beans and mix with warm water to form a paste.

These are my original recipes. Please do not copy, in any form, without written permission.

It's no fun realizing that yes, I am getting older and there are some little telltale signs peaking up all over my body.

In search of my own personal fountain of youth, I came across an article in a beauty magazine applauding the skin firming and cellulite-zapping benefits of brand-name caffeinated creams, lotions, and potions.

Caffeine you say? Well, that's easy! I have a daily supply of throw-away coffee grounds, sitting in my little white coffee pot, fresh every morning.

Nice! I always knew that my undying love for a pot of coffee a day would come in handy somehow. ;-)
