You will love this coffee scrub DIY! It’s no secret that I love all things coffee. I drink it. I use it to scent my home. Now, I’m using it to keep my skin soft and smooth. I absolutely love the taste and the scent of coffee. When I added creamer to my coffee, I often added an Irish Cream flavored creamer. Now, I drink my coffee black but I still love the way Irish Cream smells. I decided in honor of St. Patrick’s Day that I would experiment with an easy Irish Coffee scrub DIY recipe for you all to try.
Easy Irish Coffee Scrub DIY Recipe
Making a coffee scrub DIY recipe isn’t an exact science. You can play around with it a bit to suit your preferences. The key scents from Irish coffee creamer that I notice are chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Some people add a bit of peppermint but I find that overwhelms the vanilla so I leave that out. It’s totally up to you. I make enough for a small jar because I like to try a variety of different scrubs instead of using the same one for a long time. If you want, you can easily make a large jar instead. You may also like this non alcoholic Irish cream recipe for coffee.

The next time you’re in the mood for some pampering time, make a batch of this easy Irish coffee scrub DIY recipe, fill up the tub with hot water and take some time to reward yourself for making it through another day. Even better, make yourself latte, light a few coffee scented candles and lock the bathroom door!
