soapy weekend

I am shocked to realise it’s already November and I haven’t been making soap for months! So on Sunday I got started again with a Lavender soap I’d been planning for ages. I used goat milk and colour pigment and we’ll see how that works out. It’s still in the freezer but I will be cutting it later today.
I also haven’t gotten around to posting my coffee soap yet, so here it is:
coffee soap
I used very very strong coffee for the lye solution and threw in some ground coffee from used coffee pads for exfoliation. No scent used but it still smells faintly of coffee…yum šŸ™‚ The coffee is supposed to neutralise bad smells, so the soap should be used in the kitchen, after dicing onions etc. to prevent stinky fingers. I haven’t tried it out myself yet but gave away some to friends who tell me it works šŸ™‚

    I just made Citrus Coffee Hand Soap this past weekend. I had bought some homemade soap at a craft fair and loved it so much so thought I could duplicate it. I’m hoping it will be as good as hers. My recipe is on my blog.

      Citrus Coffee Soap sounds yummy :)) But doesn’t the coffee ‘drown’ the citrus smell? I read it’s no use scenting it because coffee neutralizes all other scents? I’m curious how it works out for you!

    The coffee soap we bought has a great smell of citrus. We’ve not used ours yet since we still have another week but when I sneak down there to check on it, I can smell the citrus with the coffee. I can’t wait to use it!
