Mandarin Mecca Coffee Scrub
A luxuriously complex, non-abrasive mess to restore lustre and bounce to thighs, butts and face.
Johanna made this with used coffee grounds, the beautifully fragrant and velvet soft waste that usually gets thrown out after extraction. The coffee left overs are from a roast called 'Minani Anastase', sourced directly from the grower in the Rushashi district, Rwanda, by our friend and @meccacoffee owner Paul Geshos.
"I personally can't deal with the skin-irritating, nerve stimulating high caffeine content in coffee scrubs, so the low residual amount of caffeine in coffee waste is a gently effective way to deliver all the benefits of a good coffee scrub without the hardcore down sides. Plus, this scrub is gentle enough to use on my face." - Johanna

Once a week, and, you only need little – a 10ml amount, approximately the size of a small chestnut, is heaps.
BODY SCRUB: Run the shower, grab a chestnut size piece of scrub, hop under the shower to get your body and face wet and start by gently by massaging the scrub into thighs and butt, increase to a vigorous rub in circular motion. Rub the leftover from your hands over your face. Massage body and face for as long as you like, rinse off.
FACE EXFOLIATION: Wet your face and massage a hazelnut size amount into the skin for a few minutes. Rinse, dry, moisturise with PRECIOUS FACE OIL.
DARK UNDER EYE CIRCLE TREATMENT: Very gently apply a tiny amount just under your eyes, let sit for 3-4 minutes and gingerly wash of without rubbing the delicate skin around your eyes. Works wonders.
HAIR TREATMENT: If you are experiencing menopause-related hair loss, or thinning of your hair, rub your coffee scrub-smeared hands over your scalp and let the coffee oil sit there while your scrubbing your butt. Shampoo and rinse as per usual.
One 215ml jar holds about 15 applications for body + face, 30 for face only.
A Middle Eastern journey through the streets of Mecca, fragrant with chocolate Mocca, enlivened with notes of sweet citrus and hints of lemongrass and softening caramel. A 1001 night sensory dream.
