    • Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Scrub

      Enjoy the warming aroma of coffee and cinnamon swirled into a deliciously enticing body scrub.

      • 2 cups coffee grounds
      • 1/2 cup raw sugar or sea salt
      • 2 to 3 tablespoons almond oil (or other light oil, such as grapeseed or jojoba)
      • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, powdered
      • 2 or 3 drops cinnamon essential oil


      How to Use a Body Scrub:


      1. Sit on the edge of a tub and moisten the area you wish to scrub.
      2. Place a tablespoon or so of the body scrub in the palm and gently work each area for approximately 1 minute. If you work too quickly you won't properly exfoliate.
      3. Be sure not to scour too hard or too long.
      4. If you want baby smooth skin, exfoliate once weekly.
      5. Body scrubs should never be used on the face.

      Be aware that Cinnamon may cause skin irritations. Be sure to use in Moderation, and attach a note stating so if giving as a gift.

      Re: improve a cake mix ?

      One of my favorite things to add to cake mix is: instead of water and oil add applesauce. This can make it moist and if doing a spice cake add nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon.
