I got requests for peppermint coffee soap, so I remade it, although, I readjusted the oil recipe. I keep making changes. I really need to find a basic recipe to stick with, and make it in a huge batch, so all I have to do is dip out the amount of oils I need. It takes me about an hour to make a batch of soap, but I bet I can cut down the time by premixing the oils.
For this batch, I decided to do a mantra swirl. After watching a few YouTubes on how this is accomplished, I went about doing it myself. Instead of cutting it as normal, I cut three inch blocks, and cut those in half. They will be larger bars, but I’m ok with that. The soap came out wonderfully. I LOVE how it came out. And it smells divine!
This is the first soap where I didnt use Shea butter. I’m not sure how different that will be, but it’ll be interesting testing it (because showers are always fun with new soaps – and doubly fun with a friend! 😉 ). The coffee layer has coffee extract, nutmeg EO, coffee grounds. The peppermint layer is spirulina, peppermint EO, Clove EO, and Vanilla EO. I used brewed coffee made from distilled water.
