To infuse the coconut oil, I followed the same technique as with this Nutty Coffee Body Oil, using 1 cup coconut oil and about 1/4 to 1/2 cup fresh ground coffee. Instead of almond oil, I used coconut oil here because it’s awesome for stretch marks. Just be sure to strain the oil through cheesecloth while it’s still warm and liquid to remove all of the coffee grounds.
