Coffee and Milk Exfoliating Soap DIY




I've been making my own soap for a few years now, usually just basic recipes, but I've even used the plain base I buy at hobby stores. But today I'm bringing you a nice, yummy smelling soap!

I buy the soap bases at Hobby Lobby and use a coupon, they are $9.99 without a coupon and it's 2lbs of soap base which is enough to make 8 bars of soap, that's $1.25 without a coupon, use a 40% off coupon and it's just $.75 per bar of soap (plus any add-ins)


Making this Coffee and Milk Exfoliating Soap, is incredibly easy!

You need just 2 ingredients!

I used a Goat's Milk Base from Hobby Lobby and unused coffee grounds.
Recipe is for 4, 2oz bars of soap

INGREDIENTS:
1 lb Goat's Milk Soap Base
3 tbsp Coffee Grounds (can be used or unused)

DIRECTIONS:
-Cut your soap into small chunks (it already has cut lines on it to make it easy), and melt in a microwave safe bowl, melt in 20 second increments, stirring in between, until fully melted.
-Quickly add in your coffee grounds, stirring to combine well.
-Pour into a mold, I prefer silicone, but the plastic ones at the hobby stores work fine as well.
-Wait to cool (about 40 minutes at room temp) and then pop out of mold.

This can easily be made with any other soap base as well, I just prefer the goat's milk or shea butter is awesome too!

BENEFITS OF COFFEE:
They are exfoliating so they slough off dead skin cells, Caffeine tightens the skin and Coffee brightens the skin! It's perfect to add to soap!
