Vanilla Latte Body Scrub

Because why just drink coffee when you can slather it all over your body?

My first project with Bramble Berry is this Vanilla Latte Body Scrub, complete with deliciously exfoliating coffee grounds & brown sugar. This was ridiculously simple to make, which is fantastic for someone like me who can be a bit of a quitter when DIYs get at all complex...and it smells heavenly, and looks cute in its packaging, and would make an excellent gift, and is really just a win. 

Though this is great to use now, I think this would make a perfect Autumn gift, whether to a friend or to yourself. It's both exfoliating and moisturizing, and the scent lingers perfectly. It's nice to know exactly what you're putting on your body, too! 

Obviously starting craving some iced coffee while making this - you probably will, too. Any excuse, right?

Find everything you need to make this sumptuous scrub below! 

Vanilla Latte Scrub:


Two or Three 8 oz. Bail Jars
1/2 cup Coffee Grounds
1/3 cup brown sugar (optional)

Using a mixer, combine bath whip & coffee butter until fully incorporated. Add coffee grounds and brown sugar, mix until just combined. Slowly add fragrance oils, using droppers and mixing in between so you can moderate the fragrance level to your liking. Scoop into jars, seal, and enjoy! 


  1. This sounds amazing. Must make some soon!

  2. This body scrub turned out absolutely luscious! Yay for your first project with Bramble Berry. I hope it is the first of many! Turkish Mocha and Vanilla Select are such wonderful fragrance oils. So happy to see that you enjoyed them as well =)

  3. This sounds amazing! Does this leave skin feeling clean or oily though?

    1. It definitely leaves the skin feeling clean and smooth, I have not noticed any residual oily feelings at all.

  4. But what if I want to eat it?!? Looks so good!

  5. Can i replace some ingredients like the fragrance or the butter if i don't have some of those available at the moment? Also, how long is the shelf life? Do you need to add preservatives to last long and if yes what kind of preservative and how long will it last? Don't have any idea i'm just new to this please bear with me. Thank you. Looking forward to your response :)

  6. I followed the recipe exactly but mine turned out super dark that normal?


what's good?
