Are you keen on coffee as I am? If your answer is "yes", you are to try this homemade vanilla coffee soap. The fragrance is absolutely gorgeous and moreover, it has got many benefits: coffee is a source of anti-aging nutrients for skincare, coffee grounds can produce an exfoliating effect and one more plus of such a soap is in making skin look less puffy and improve circulation. So, let`s try to make together this magic aroma soap!
Things you need:
- 1 lb shea butter melt and pour soap base
- ¼ cup used coffee grounds
- 3 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
- soap mold
- soap knife
- measuring cup
- non-stick heat resistant spatula
Prepare a square silicone soap mold by cleaning, drying, and spritzing with rubbing alcohol. Then carefully slice 1 pound of shea butter soap base into cubes that are approximately ½” to 1” in size using a soap knife.
Scoop the sliced shea butter soap base into a large glass measuring cup for safe melting and easy pouring. Place it in the microwave and melt the soap base in 30 seconds intervals, stirring intermittently to avoid burning.
Promptly remove the melted soap base from the microwave and add 3 tablespoons of vanilla extract. Stir together using a non-stick heat resistant spatula. Then add a ¼ cup of used coffee grounds to the soap mixture. Stir well to incorporate into soap.
Working quickly, pour the vanilla coffee soap into the prepared square silicone mold before the soap begins to harden. Carefully distribute evenly between 4 to 5 sections, avoiding overflow.
If needed, spritz with rubbing alcohol to remove bubbles in the soap. Allow coffee soap to cool in the mold for one to two hours or until solid before removing.
