Here is one of my all time favorite Body Brews that is super easy to make and will leave your home and skin smelling amazing. This body oil is made with 2 simple ingredients: organic caffeinated coffee bean & organic coconut oil. Think of the body brew as "Maui Babe" meets Holistic Healing Body Oil.
Because caffeine constricts blood vessels it's often added to skin-care products to help reduce cellulite, promote a tighter tummy, and reduce under-eye puffiness. Along with the cooling effects of coconut oil you have the perfect blend of anti-inflammatory body care that Ayurvedically balances Pitta Dosha (aka heat) & helps re-invigorate the body & mind. Here's the exact extraction and DIY body brew making process. Let me know if you make it and share it with your friends too. It's such a great home-made gift, especially given in the summer months when Pitta/heat is much higher in us all.
What you'll need:
One jar of organic coconut oil
1/4 to 1/3 cup of organic coffee beans
Mesh strainer, glass bowl, funnel.
Melt the coconut oil in a pot over low heat. Add coffee beans & simmer an hour or two over the lowest heat. Strain through a mesh strainer into a glass bowl to cool (you can add a few bean back in for the cooling process). Once cool funnel back into original jar and remove any beans. Lid & enjoy liberally massaged into your body daily. ☕️
