Step One: Follow the instructions on the soap packaging to melt a section. Once soap is completely melted, stir in 1/2 cup of coffee grounds per finished soap. I melted enough to make two soap bars so I added 1 cup of coffee grounds.
Step Two: Pour soap and coffee mixture into soap molds and allow to cool for the time recommended on the packaging. You may notice that the coffee grounds in my soap rose to the surface. I love that it creates an exfoliating side to my soap but can understand if you’d rather have the ground more evenly dispersed throughout the soap. To achieve that look, you’re going to have to find a melt-and-pour soap base that has specifically been formulated for suspension.
Step Three: Once your soap has hardened completely, wrap in plastic and apply label. You can either make your own label or choose to print out the one I used. They’re specifically designed for OnlineLabels.com OL1030 and look great with their brown kraft paper!
And that’s all you have to do to make your own Homemade Coffee Soap! It’s easy to make and would work great as a gift by itself or included in a basket with other coffee-themed gifts. I personally use this soap after working in the garden because it’s amazing at removing all the dirt and grime that goes with the territory. What would you use this soap for?
