A perfect gift for coffee lovers

Coffee, vanilla and nuts in one? Mmmm, that's a dream come true. This shower scrub smells like the best coffee in a famous coffee shop... But in the bathroom. At your home. :) And it certainly doesn't end there, this miracle can do much more! It can wash away impurities, gently and pleasantly remove rough dead skin, and at the same time beautifully nourish and lubricate the skin.

If you have a coffee lover in your neighborhood who deserves a little pampering, make them a simple shower scrub full of coffee and vanilla. And don't forget to think about yourself and definitely keep at least one glass for yourself at home!


Washing is a joy

We know... These homemade scrubs look beautiful in the picture, but using them isn't so idyllic anymore - the gross greasy component of the scrub is not only on you, but also in the whole bathroom, and after use you have to do something to get out of the slippery, oiled bath unscathed … That's the end of it. When mixing this preparation, we thought about this too!

That's why we added castile soap to the coffee, butter and oil, a liquid soap base without perfume, which gets along well with the other ingredients. It gently removes dirt from the skin, makes it easier to wash off the coffee and ensures that grease does not settle on the bathtub. In addition, you can use it elsewhere, it is great for washing dishes and floors or for making homemade liquid soap or shower gel, which you can adjust according to your wishes. Do you already have it in your cart? :)


Say goodbye to cellulite, acne, clogged pores and a bad mood

We already said that coffee gently "sands off" dead skin, but do you know what else this miracle can do? Treat cellulite. And if you are a female, you will certainly appreciate that. Men will also benefit from the fact that ground coffee applied in circular motions, together with the caffeine contained in it, can excellently support and stimulate blood and lymph circulation, has an anti-inflammatory effect and brightens the skin.

Macadamia oil and macadamia butter provide hydration, nourishment and the necessary lubrication of the skin without clogging pores or causing acne. The fat from macadamia nuts is very well tolerated by the skin and (compared to coconut oil, which is often used in shower scrubs and causes mischief on many people's skin) is practically non-comedogenic. The price here is also favorable. After all, we have to think about the fact that we rinse off a large part of the peeling ingredients from the skin in the shower... And pouring expensive oils and butters, such as green coffee oil or coffee butter (although they would be great for our recipe), is really unnecessary.


Vanilla and coffee get along beautifully. In addition, the vanilla aroma has a literally beneficial effect on our mind and senses. It induces calmness and relaxation, can deal with bad mood and anxiety, and even acts as an aphrodisiac. Vanilla is perfect for evening rituals!

As for the coffee aroma, the ground coffee itself will take care of that. But if you go for coffee like we do, take a look at 100 coffee essential oil, which is produced by steam distillation from high-quality roasted coffee. Are you melting too just reading this? So be sure to get it, you can use it not only for peeling, but also in lip balms, body creams, soaps and anti-cellulite and anti-wrinkle products.

Exactly to taste

Mix the coarseness, fineness or roughness of the peeling yourself according to your taste. If you only reach for ground coffee, the exfoliation will be gentle and you can also wipe your face with it once in a while. If you want greater roughness and therefore a stronger exfoliating effect, add walnut or rosehip powder, for example. Cane sugar or Himalayan salt guarantee even greater roughness. Use Himalayan salt also if you want the peeling to be gel rather than liquid. Castile soap thickens wonderfully after adding salt! If you want a liquid or oil peeling, leave out the salt and use sugar, the mentioned exfoliating powders or simply nothing.

And now we are going to production!

What does it take?

For 2 approximately 120ml cans, the recipe does not need to be followed exactly, there are no limits to imagination :)

- 100 grams of ground coffee

- 15 grams of macadamia butter

- 40 milliliters of macadamia oil

- 30 milliliters of liquid castile soap

- A few drops of vanilla fragrance

- A few drops of coffee essential oil

- A few drops of vitamin E

- A few drops of preservative (not necessary, but since water is very likely to get into the product, we recommend using a preservative)

- 2 teaspoons Himalayan salt (optional)

- 2 teaspoons of Epsom salt (optional)

- Optional walnut exfoliating powder (optional)

How to do it?


This product is perfect for the hectic pre-Christmas period. It's really made in a few minutes (including a decorative tag), and yet it's an absolutely luxurious affair.


First, mix the loose ingredients (except for the salt, add it at the end so that you have the opportunity to decide on the thickness of the peeling). Then warm up the macadamia butter, ideally in a water bath, but if you're short on time, this butter can also be microwaved (be sure to keep an eye on it and only microwave it for a few seconds). Then add macadamia oil and castile soap to the melted and slightly cooled butter. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well. Take a look at the density and if you want the scrub to be more gel-like, add Himalayan salt, if you want a more liquid product, add oil and castile soap. Try the roughness and add sugar, salt or exfoliating powders as you like.


The final step is the addition of vitamin E, fragrance, essential oil and preservative. Always add these ingredients only when you have mixed and the product has cooled down.


Smell it, admire the beauty that you have created in a few minutes and slide the peeling into the prepared jars (it looks great in transparent and dark glass jars). And it is done! Now all you have to do is fill the bath or make a sign and hide the scrub for Christmas.
