Vanilla Coffee Soap

Your morning coffee isn’t just for drinking. Well, the actual coffee liquid is, but the grounds? Don’t throw those in the compost just yet. You can use them to whip up a quick batch of this lovely Vanilla Coffee Soap.

It’s made with three ingredients: Goat’s milk melt and pour soap base, coffee grounds and vanilla soap scent. I love how it looks with the pretty coffee flecks spread throughout.

It even has a creamy milky colour of coffee thanks to the addition of the coffee grounds. Go ahead and make your coffee and then take what’s left from the coffee filter to make this recipe. You might as well get two uses out of them!

With the holidays coming up, I know many of us are looking for gift ideas. Why not make your friends and family some soap? It’s super easy and they’ll be impressed with how nice they look (and smell too!). It can be our little secret about how easy it is to make soap with the melt and pour soap bases.
