Creative ways to use old coffee grounds
We all know that coffee is one of the most popular drinks throughout the world and we usually discard of the grounds left behind, but did you know, there are some amazing ways you can repurpose them rather than throwing them out.
The National Coffee Blog reported on the findings that 'When coffee grounds are dumped into landfills they create methane, which is a greenhouse gas. Methane is known to be more harmful than carbon dioxide, another greenhouse gas that causes global warming. If we are able to keep coffee grounds out of landfills we’ll be one step closer to eliminating greenhouse gas emissions.'
The month of January has always been the month we re-focus on our wellbeing, and as we come to the end it's still important to keep that focus. So we've looked at ways we can re-purpose used coffee grounds whilst helping to promote overall skin health. We've excitedly been trialing a recipe with our friends Naturally Kunewyk, and created an all over body scrub, which is perfect for exfoliating your skin. The coarse particles in the coffee grounds work as an exfoliating agent to help remove dirt and dead cells from the skin. Not only this, but coffee grounds applied topically, may help to reduce the appearance of cellulite by breaking down fat despots and increasing blood flow to the affected area because the of caffeine content.
Using completely natural ingredients, we're hoping to be able to make this scrub available to you to purchase very soon!
