Our Latte Brown Sugar Scrub Inspiration…
We’re huge coffee drinkers and we know so many of you are as well. There’s just something special about that first cup of coffee in the morning time, right? I swear, I know I’m going to have the best day the minute I take that first sip ?
Likewise, I feel the same way when I step into the shower after my morning workout. I mean, working out is not my favorite thing to do at all. I just never feel like I’m “in the zone” like they say you’re supposed to be.
But I do it because I know it’s important for my overall health and I hope you guys make time to take care of yourselves too.
There are three things that keep me motivated in the mornings whether I’m running on the treadmill, working out to a video or walking around the block with a friend.
- A good podcast
- Thinking about the blast of water from the shower post workout
- The first sip of coffee
They seem like such simple things to look forward to, but I’ll use any tool that keeps me motivated to keep going until the workout has ended!
An easy way to combine a love for coffee and hot showers is with a cinnamon and vanilla latte brown sugar scrub. If you’re ready to shake up your morning routine before the season starts or you’re looking for a simple gift to create for the coffee lovers in your life, you’ve come to the right place.
This brown sugar scrub smells so good, it will make you want to stash breakfast cookies in the drawers of your bathroom he he.
Here’s a look at everything you’ll need to make a cinnamon and vanilla latte brown sugar scrub of your own…
Cinnamon and Vanilla Latte Brown Sugar Scrub Supplies:
2 ¼ cup brown sugar (you could also use white sugar if you don’t have brown sugar on hand)
¼ cup of ground coffee
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons of coconut oil.
Jar or container with sealing lid
Cinnamon and Vanilla Latte Brown Scrub Steps
Place 2 ¼ cups of brown sugar in a bowl.
Add ¼ cup of ground coffee to the sugar.
Next, add 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.
Then, add ½ teaspoon of vanilla.
Finally, add 3 tablespoons of organic coconut oil.
Mix well with a spoon until the ingredients have fully combined.
Scoop the cinnamon and vanilla latte brown sugar scrub mixture into a jar with a sealing lid. Make sure your jar or container has been well cleaned and is completely dry.
Things to Keep in Mind…
As with most homemade sugar scrubs the coconut oil may either settle at the bottom or will rise to the top. If that happens, you can just mix it up with a spoon before use.
Utilize caution, care and common sense when using this cinnamon and vanilla latte brown sugar scrub. The scrub will become slippery after use so make sure you’re taking necessary precautions, so you don’t slip or fall. Be sure to clean out the shower or bathtub after each use.
Seriously you guys, this brown sugar scrub smells so good! It’s just a simple thing we can do for ourselves and make for our friends to help usher in and celebrate the upcoming season.
Bonus, it’s an easy way to show the coffee drinkers in your life you love them a latte (sorry, I couldn’t resist).
