So, we unmolded the coffee soap today. Soon I am going to get actual coffee essential oil so it will also smell like coffee. This one has a combination of cinnamon leaf, nutmeg, and ginger oils. I thought it would smell kinda Christmas-ey. We’ll be able to tell better once the goat milk odor has dissipated.
The coffee (this time I used espresso grind) is for exfoliation purposes. It also will leave a nice coffee stain in your bathroom if you leave it where it can stay wet. I keep my old bar in the shower and it hasn’t been a problem, but I plan to try this one as a facial soap, where I feel it may become a problem sink-side. Just a head’s up if you are planning to get some.
If you have suggestions for other exfoliants..corn meal is one I’ve heard about but have yet to try, chime in!!
