1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup salt
1 Tablespoon Kalamansi or Lemon
1 Tablespoon Virgin Coconut Oil
1 Tablespoon Honey

1/2 cup ground oatmeal - Not the instant kind
1/4 cup pure honey
3/4 to 1 cup of oil - Example: Extra virgin olive, Jojoba, Grapeseed or Sweet Almond oil
1/4 teaspoonx Essential or Fragrance oil of choice (like vanilla) - Optional
Mix the brown sugar and oatmeal together in a large bowl before adding the honey. Then drizzle the oil over the mix before stirring everything together. Once the mix is saturated (sinks to the bottom of the bowl while the oil floats on top) you're done. Feel free to add your own essential oil or fragrance oil as you like. DIY BATH Coffee Body Scrub
1 cup gluten free oatmeal
1/2 cup organic sugar
1/2 cup organic coffee grounds - Brewed or fresh

The great thing about this recipe is that you can make a big batch and store it in the fridge (for up to a week). Place oats (and freshly ground coffee beans) in a food processor and pulse until super fine. Add the grounds, sugar and vitamin C crystals, and pulse a few more times. Now add honey and oil, the vitamin D drops before pulsing again to form a paste. Transfer the mix into a jar and store in the refrigerator and scoop it when you need a quick scrub.
