Throughout this time of rest, we have the ability to focus on something we might not normally do in our busy lives. You can take this time to focus on yourself whether that be through meditation, working out, health, trying a recipe, or reading a new book. Today, we want to focus on your skincare routine. Here at P&J, speaking from personal experiences, we are happier when our skin is happy! One way we keep our skin happy is by creating exfoliating scrubs.

The right exfoliation gets rid of dead cells which clogs the skin and uncovers fresh cells below. This also allows moisturizing properties in the scrub to soak deeply into your skin. In other words, exfoliating is important for your skin because it keeps it healthy! Thus, we want to share with you our top three scrubs our P&J family loves to make.


Sugar Scrub

Coffee Scrub

  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/4  Cup Ground Coffee Beans
  • 1 Tbsp Grapeseed Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 30 Drops of P&J Coffee Cake

Salt Scrub

  • 1 Cup Epsom Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 10 Drops of P&J Lemon


  • Grab three medium bowls.
  • Combine all sugar scrub ingredients together in one bowl.
  • Stir all coffee scrub ingredients together in a separate bowl.
  • Mix all salt scrub ingredients together in a separate bowl.
  • Pour each individual bowl into three different mason jars.
  • Scoop out desired scrub in the shower, gently rub on your skin, & wash off!

There are a few benefits to the three scrubs we made today! The coffee scrub is said to help improve blood circulation and temporarily mask cellulite on your skin. Additionally, the sugar scrub helps brighten your skin which gives it a younger appearance. Lastly, the salt scrub is said to help reduce inflammation.
