Mochacchino Butter Sugar Scrub Tutorial

Need an extra boost to wake you up in the morning? This Mochacchino sugar scrub should do the trick. I like to scent mine with a mix of coffee, vanilla, and chocolate fragrance, but the butter already has a delicious scent so you could really just eliminate the added fragrance.

2 oz Mochacchino butter
2 oz sweet almond oil
1 cup Demerara sugar
1/8 cup ground coffee
25-30 drops of fragrance or essential oil 

1. Weigh out the Mochacchino butter and melt in the microwave.
2. Weigh out the sweet almond oil and add it to the melted butter.

4. Add fragrance to the mixture and stir.

 5. Package it in a pretty container and then rush off to the shower for a nice scrub down!

You may find that this needs more or less liquid oil depending on your taste. I would let the mixture cool to room temp and then modify it if needed.

Let me know if you try it and how it turns out!
