    Coffee Energizing Body Scrub

    Coffee is very exfoliating and energizing. Use this scrub on your arms, legs, feet, elbows and rough places where you need more exfoliation. If you like the smell of coffee, this is for you.

    1/4 cup of sugar

    1 4-inch sprig of fresh rosemary

    1/4 cup coffee beans, finely ground

    2 tablespoons bentonite clay

    3 tablespoons of the body oil best for your skin

    3 drops each of rosemary oil and grapefruit or peppermint oils

    Combine sugar and rosemary in a spice grinder and process until the rosemary is finely ground. Mix with remaining ingredients. Scrub skin lightly with the mix and shower off. Moisturize afterward with additional body oil.
