The very first post will be dedicated to one of the most fragrant and fascinating soap I ever tried : DIY vanilla coffee soap. Moreover, it is excellent facial and body scrub. Firstly,

Proportions:

  • Goat Milk Soap Base – 3 oz or 85 g
  • Argan Oil Soap Base  – 0,5 oz or 15 g ( may be substituted by any other soap base )
  • Jojoba Oil                     – 1/3 teaspoons
  • Vanilla Essence          – 2-3 drops
  • Coffee Essence           – 2-3 drops
  • Ylang Ylang Essential Oil – 3-7 drops
  • Honey – 1-3 teaspoons
  • Ground Coffee – 1-3 teaspoons

You may change the quantity of ingredients depending on the desired weight of soap. 

Don’t mix essential oils with aromatic essences and flavor enhancers!

  1. Firstly, we need to take our soap bases and cut them into chunks ( about 1*1 cm ). Then place the chunks into microwave untill the base completely melts. Don’t let the boil melt, otherwise it will lose all it’s use and valuable properties.
  2.  Add the Jojoba Oil and Honey, then stir.
  3.  Add both of our essential oils, go on stirring.
  4. When all the ingredients are added, I usually add vanilla and coffee extracts + ground coffee at the very end. Don’t stop stirring.
  5. Pour our mixture into soap molds. I prefer silicone ones. You may also use plastic molds or any TetraPack prisma from milk or juice.
  6. Spray the liquid soap with alcohol spray to avoid bubbles on the surface ( I got mine from the Drugstore ).
  7. Wait no less than half an hour before the soap hardens.

The smell of this soap is just fantastic, the favorite soap of my baby son. However , it is excellent homemade scrub. Enjoy 🙂
