If you have never made your own soap, give this vanilla coffee exfoliating soap a try. It couldn’t be easier!
I absolutely love soaps that have coffee included in it. I like the exfoliation, I love the smell, and I love how luxurious it all feels.
Vanilla Coffee Soap
Once you’ve made this simple recipe, you will be so excited to try other DIY soaps. Feel free to play around with the scents, too. Almond works well here, too.
You Will Need:
½ lb goats milk glycerin soap melt and pour base (affiliate link)
1 ½ tbsp coffee grounds (extra, if you’d like)
20 drops vanilla soap fragrance (affiliate link)
Large measuring cup
Spoon or wooden popsicle stick
Rectangular soap molds (affiliate link)
Note: You can get the soap-making supplies like the soap base and soap molds at your local craft store, or grab some on Amazon.
Step 1. Place the soap base in a measuring cup and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir very well. If not completely melted, repeat at 10 second intervals until fully melted, stirring in between.
Step 2. Stir in coffee grounds
Step 3. Add soap fragrance. Stir well.
Step 4. Pour mixture into the soap molds. (Optional: You can place some extra coffee grounds at the bottom of the soap mold before pouring in the mixture if you’d like your bar of soap to be a little more exfoliant.)
Step 5. Lightly spray the top of the poured mixture with rubbing alcohol to prevent bubbles from forming on the soap.
Step 6. Let set for about 60 minutes to cool and harden and remove from mold.
