coconut body latte // a DIY bath recipe

Happy Friday! I have a quick post today because I wanted to share a little DIY recipe I conjured up recently. It’s not necessary groundbreaking but the way it all worked together was just so relaxing and smelled amazing, so here we go:

I call it a “body latte” because while I was in this bath, it genuinely felt and smelled like I was soaking in a Starbucks latte. It’s super easy to make too! Just blend together ground coffee and solid coconut oil into a paste (no measurements needed, just make as much as you need). Fill up the bath (with bubbles if you’d like), wet your skin, then use the combined coffee and coconut as a scrub. What’s great about it is that it’s both exfoliating and moisturizing at the same time.

While you’re soaking in your latte, I recommend amping it up a little by adding a face mask. For this specific bath, I love using the Summer Fridays Overtime Mask because a) it’s an exfoliating mask so it serves the same purpose as the body scrub and b) it smells like pumpkin, so it kind of turns your bath into a pumpkin spice latte.
