DIY All-Natural Vanilla Latte Body Scrub

Mmm is there anything better than the smell of coffee in the morning?

I’m not even a coffee drinker but that smell just perks me right on up.

And it turns out coffee may also help perk up your derrière. Well kind of…

Coffee helps decrease the appearance of cellulite when applied topically.

Cellulite and I are old frenemies. We’re friends because it lives on my body and I think the human body is just fascinating and awesome and amazing and something to be respected. But we’re enemies because it’s just flat-out annoying (you feel me or what?). I know I’m not alone in this because a study in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy found that nearly 85% of women over the age of 20 have cellulite.

The caffeine in coffee helps to tighten skin and smooth cellulite by increasing circulation to the area. The action of scrubbing also increases circulation and stimulates lymphatic flow, which makes this DIY all-natural vanilla latte body scrub work double duty!

But don’t expect to use this scrub once and instantly see results (if only it were that easy!). Results are seen when applying caffeine (as with this scrub) regularly.

Mix everything together and voilà! You have yourself a homemade all-natural vanilla latte body scrub.

For best results, aim to use this scrub 2-3 times a week for multiple weeks.

NOTE: Be sure to avoid getting moisture in your body scrub, which provides the perfect breeding-ground for bacteria. We don’t want that.

  1. I am seeking the non-caffeine alternative as I am allergic. Also,wondering about your thoughts and ideas about at home colonies?

  2. Should this be done outside so it doesn’t clog up your shower or tub drain? I know they clog up my kitchen drain if I don’t use the disposal.

    Thank you,

  3. I’ve been dying to try a coffee scrub…this will definitely do! Thank you!

  4. I’m also wondering if pure vanilla extract can be subbed for the bean powder is it just for scent or does the vanilla bean powder add some kind of special benefits or extra exfoliation?

  5. Yes for exfoliation, but it will have less caffeine if you’re looking for the anti-cellulite effect.

  6. Hello!

    I love your blog and I loved hearing all about this coffee scrub.

    I have one question though, how long does it last, meaning does it have sort of a “expiration date”?

    Thank you!

  7. I have a coffee grinder for my espresso machine. How fine or coarse does the grains have to be grinded? I have it on very fine for making coffee.

  8. Hey Missy! Hmmm probably… baking soda is finer so you may want to add a tablespoon or so more.
