Activity 11: Homemade Body Scrub
A good few years ago we made some home made scrubs with some of the groups. Kirsty Allsopp made a lovely and simple scrub in one of her episodes. Vanessa has made her own version of that: perhaps you would like to do the same?
YOU WILL NEED:
Used Ground Coffee
Sea Salt or Sugar
Empty Jar with Lid
A large Bowl for mixing
What to do:
Gather all your materials: an empty tub, a bowl, a spoon and all the ingredients (see above).
Peal 1 whole orange skin and put in the food processer. If like me you don’t have that - grating your orange skin (keep it on the orange) works just as well.
Add two teaspoons of ground coffee. Dry from the jar has a nice effect but you can also use already used (then dried up) coffee ground.
Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and a table spoon of sea salt into the mixture.
That’s it ready! It will smell amazing. You can use it straight away-by scrubbing it gently onto your skin. Remember it is not a cream, therefore you need to fully wash it off as the coffee grind will otherwise give you a fake tan that you might not want!
You can keep it in the fridge for a few days to keep it fresh and usable.
There are lots of different recipes out there and I would recommend you make you own - as you may not wish to have too much sea salt as or more orange peel. You can use this recipe as a basic recipe to start of with.
Take a look at the suggestions in the photo of things you could add!
If you make one of these, please send us a photo - we would love to see!
