Vanilla Cinnamon Latte Body Scrub

Ingredients
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1/2 cup  Coconut Sugar or Honey
1/2 cup coffee, ground (I made mine with used coffee grounds that I dried out)
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 drops cinnamon essential oil

1.  In a double boiler over low heat, gently warm the coconut oil. Be careful not to melt the oil – heat just enough to blend easily with the sugar (or honey) and coffee grounds. Once warm, remove from heat and transfer the oil to a bowl.
2. Add the coconut sugar, coffee grounds, vanilla, and cinnamon essential oil. Stir by hand until all of the ingredients are well blended.
Yields 8oz. Transfer to a container, like a wide-mouth canning jar for easy scooping.
To Use: Activate the scrub by scooping a small amount into the palm of your hand, add a bit of water and then gently exfoliate your skin. Use with caution as the coconut oil might make the tub slippery.
