Hazelnut Coffee Soap
Making your own soap has so many benefits, and I especially love that I can choose my own scent and color combinations. This Hazelnut Coffee Soap is one of my favorites because it smells absolutely amazing, just like a fresh brewed cup of hazelnut coffee. A simple melt and pour shea butter base is used in this homemade soap recipe, so it is perfect for beginners, and even those who just want something easy to make. The addition of fresh hazelnut coffee grounds and cinnamon bark essential oil combine to give this soap a wonderful scent. You can also choose to recycle your used coffee grounds in this soap recipe!
Cut soap base into 1 inch pieces and place in measuring cup. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir very well. If not completely melted, repeat at 10 second intervals until fully melted, stirring in between.
Stir in coffee grounds.
Add essential oil. Stir well.
Pour mixture into the soap molds.
Lightly spray with rubbing alcohol to prevent bubbles from forming on the soap.
Let set for about 60 minutes and remove from mold.
