To make a homemade cosmetic is not that hard anymore – the organic ingredients are easy to find and the manufacturing process takes only a couple of minutes.
You can find a lot about the qualities of the coffee and its beneficial influence on the skin, so we are just going to remember that the ground coffee is perfect for skin exfoliation.
It is powerful antioxidant and protects your skin from the free radicals, which can cause premature skin aging. The coffee is also a powerful helper in the fight against the cellulite.
To make a homemade soap with coffee you will need soap base (you can find it in almost every organic cosmetic shop), coffee beans, etheric or aromatic oil and a form for the soap.
In this case you can even use a kitchen form, for example the one you use for making muffins or cookies. Of course, you can get a form specially for soap, if you want to achieve the best results and even to sell your homemade soap. But if you don’t want to spend extra money, we bet that you can find a proper form in your kitchen, that will do the job.
The quantity of the soap base you will have to add by your choice. It will depend on the form that you choose. The coffee beans shouldn’t be fine grounded as usual, so make sure you will let it on a slightly larger chunks. You can use the kitchen hammer and nylon bag, chopper or anything else that can do the job. The larger chunks mean that the exfoliating qualities of the coffee will be preserved more effectively.
Melt the soap base, add the grounded coffee chunks and etheric or aromatic oil by your choice. The great coffee aroma will combine well with vanilla, so you can add some vanilla extract. If you want, you can put orange peel – the soap will be very aromatic and good-looking. You have many options here, so use what you want.
When you are done you will see how easy and satisfying is to make a homemade soap and the next time you will think twice before buying a soap from the store.
