If you love the scent of coffee, you’re about to go bananas for this Hazelnut Coffee Soap Recipe.
I know what you’re thinking. I’m a bit of a soap fanatic. And while that may have a little bit of truth to it, what I really love is being able to treat my skin and health with DIY items that I can make.
I’m not a fan of over-the-counter products because they contain a lot of stuff that I can’t even pronounce. And yes, even if that item is “just” soap, I feel very strongly about it.
Just stop and think about how many times in a day you or your family wash their hands. And those chemicals can seep into your skin or if your little ones puts their hands in their mouth…you get the drill. It’s just not worth it to me.
This is one of the biggest reasons that I’m taking charge of my home products and making them myself! And this Hazelnut Coffee Soap recipe is one of my new favorites!
Coffee Soap Recipe
You just need a few simple ingredients and supplies to get started. And don’t worry. You can get most of these at Michael’s or the beloved Amazon.
Supplies needed to make the coffee soap
- ¾ of a pound of shea butter melt and pour soap base
- 1 tablespoon hazelnut coffee grounds
- 10 drops of cinnamon bark essential oil
- Large measuring cup (glass is my favorite to use – no stains or smells)
- Spoon or wooden popsicle stick
- Soap Mold
How to make coffee soap
Step 1. Start by cutting the soap base into 1-inch pieces. Then take those pieces and put them in the measuring cup. Place in the microwave and heat up for 30 seconds. Once done, stir very well. If it isn’t completely melted at that point, add back into the microwave and continue melting in 10-second intervals, stirring in between.
Step 2. Once it is completely melted, stir in your coffee grounds.
Step 3. After that has been added, it’s time to add in the essential oil. Stir well.
Step 4. (It should be smelling great right about now!) Take your mixture and pour into the soap molds.
Step 5. Use the rubbing alcohol and lightly spray on top. This prevents bubbles from forming.
Step 6. Once done, leave and let set for about 60 minutes. Remove from mold.
