This is a great recipe for making your own soap, the fast and uncomplicated way. The result is a gorgeous, softly exfoliating soap that will give you an early morning, calorie-free, caffeine fix!

 

Makes: 400 g | 14.1 oz (approx. 4 soap bars) Prep Time: < 10 min. (plus setting time)

Ingredients  

300 g | 10.6 oz pure soap – roughly chopped into small pieces (see recipe notes)

80 g | 2.8 oz carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil and sweet almond oil are popular choices)

20 g | 0.7 oz coffee grounds (see recipe notes)

Extra equipment required…

Silicone moulds or soap trays

Method

1. Add soap to blender or food processor. Blend for 10-20 seconds on high speed until you reach a powder-like consistency. Empty into a glass bowl.

2. Add carrier oil to bowl and heat until softened. (Double boiler method– place bowl on a pot of gently simmering water and stir frequently; Microwave method– heat in short bursts on low, stopping and stirring frequently). Note that mixture will look warm and squishy but not melted to a liquid consistency. Remove from heat.

3. Add coffee grounds and mix until combined.

4. Press mixture into silicone moulds or soap trays and allow to cool before unmoulding.

5. Allow to dry for 24 hours on a tray or sheet of baking paper, before storing in container of choice.

Thermal Appliance Method

1. Add soap to thermal appliance bowl and mill for 10-20 seconds on high speed until fine in consistency. Leave in bowl.

2. Add carrier oil and melt: 4-5 minutes | approx. 70˚C (158˚F) | low speed. Extend time if required, until ingredients have softened. Mixture will look warm and squishy but not melted to a liquid consistency.

3. Add coffee grounds and mix until combined.

4. Press mixture into silicone moulds or soap trays and allow to cool before unmoulding.

5. Allow to dry for 24 hours on a tray or sheet of baking paper, before storing in container of choice.

To Use

Place in palm of hand whilst showering and scrub over body.

Recipe Notes

  • Source soap as pure and fragrance-free as you can find (organic is preferable).
  • Coffee grounds must be fully dehydrated.
  • If the bar breaks apart during use, just reform into a ball after each shower.
  • I strongly suggest you check out the blog posts under “Recommended Reading”.
