Coffee should be consumed through the usual channels - that is, as we all know - via the oesophagus to your stomach and then absorbed by your intestines.. not in a skin scrub. What a waste of good organic coffee beans .. although having said that .. some that I've tried might as well be rubbed on than wasted by throwing in the trash.  :'(

if you're after a skin treatment .. grow some Aloe Vera plants, cut off the low leaves, peel back the skin .. use the goo to rub on your skin and scrape out the gel out to add to fruit juice in a blender to mix it in. That way .. you get the benefit internally as well as externally.

That'll give you a moon glow that actually works.  :thumb:

I wonder if they prefer it ground with a conical or flat ? I might experiment and report back

coffee enema's were the in thing in the media a while ago.  Now they are rubbing it on the outside.  Ummm.  Maybe eventually they will get it in the right place. :)

Surprisingly, all the applications mentioned have benefits and it only goes to show its many uses and how great the bean is.  :thumb: :coffee2:
Fortunately, we here, do enjoy its most popular use.
Ahh COFFEE! No matter how, get it in ya.  :D

We had someone at my workplace order ground coffee for their beauty products...I would hate to think how much she charges for them!
