Have you ever looked at used coffee grounds and wondered if you can repurpose them? Well, you can. Some people use them in gardens to promote healthy plant growth. But the Ott Coffee team is here to help share several homemade CBD-infused coffee bodies and facial scrub recipes with you. This way, you can reuse used coffee grounds and walk around all year long with radiant skin. 

Why should people use CBD coffee scrubs? 

There isn’t specific evidence at the moment, but coffee contains caffeine and antioxidants that are applied to benefit our skin in many ways.

Caffeine in and of itself has many positive effects and so does CBD. But topically applying our fave mood-boosting cup of joe helps dilate blood vessels and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while 

reducing excess water and tightening the skin. Who wouldn’t want to appear more toned from CBD — AKA, cannabidiol? 

Another benefit comes from the natural exfoliating effects of the grounds of coffee themselves; they are loosening, cleaning, and removing dead skin cells when you take five to 10 extra minutes to scrub your face and body in the bath or shower two to three times every week. 

And what about the CBD?

Well, by the time you have brewed and finished drinking your cup of CBD-infused coffee, the levels of residual CBD remaining in the grounds is low. But let’s not get too scientific here.

In case you’re wondering, ‘why should I use a CBD body scrub,’ we will touch on the primary benefits for you. 

CBD is effective when it comes to fighting acne since it aids in reducing sebum from excess production. Too much sebum causes breakouts, blemishes, signs of early aging, greasy skin, and more. 

The research is promising: the evidence implies CBD can be effective at addressing the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis, too.

Exfoliating will make your skin look brighter and feel smoother. While our skin naturally exfoliates, our daily body lotion, sweat and oil can slow the natural process of shedding dead skin cells.

No need to buy those pricey skincare products you love anymore, though. Why would ya’ when you can DIY instead? This is better for the planet, your skin and your bank account. 

Natural CBD body and facial scrubs are generally able to be made with ingredients you already have in your kitchen, making the process of whipping up a batch super simple. 

CBD Coffee & Coconut Oil Body Scrub

Much like all our recipes, you should gently scrub your hands, body, and feet one to two times per week. Exfoliation with CBD coffee is designed for your hands, body, feet, and face. For best results, leave your homemade CBD coffee scrub on for three to five minutes before washing it off.

The oil you’ll use in the scrubs tends to be a tad slippery, so be careful you don’t fall in the shower. All of these scrubs expire in six months, but for those who apply them on their entire body once a week… you’ll need to make more because they’ll run out. 

For each recipe, you can use any essential oil, body-safe scents, or blend of oils to create your desired fragrance.
