Coffee Scented Soap… The Recipe

I don’t wait around for Christmas to arrive to begin thinking about stocking stuffers. If truth be known, I start thinking about Christmas sometime in January. There is just so much to do and so little time to get everything done.

Today, I want to share a recipe for coffee scented soap. It’s easy to make and will please just about anyone on your Christmas list.


3 ounces of (clear) glycerin soap
*brown coloring agent (solid or liquid)
5 drops of *coffee fragrance oil

Weigh the glycerin soap that you will be using and then cut three ounces from the slab. Kitchen scales will come in very handy for this purpose.
Place soap chunks into a pyrex measuring cup and melt in the microwave for about 30 seconds at a time, checking each time to observe the melting process. It is best to proceed slowly. Stir to help the process along.
Add tiny amounts of your coloring agent until you have acquired the perfect shade of pink.

Continue stirring to distribute color.
The last step is to add your fragrance. Add a few drops at a time as the scent can be overpowering if you aren’t careful. Immediately pour into your mold and allow to cool completely.

*both are available at good craft stores.
