Coffee Soap - Aroma...
Smells deliciously like fresh coffee grinds... you know... when you cut open that vacuum packed bag of coffee and the smell overwhelms you? Or when you freshly grind the coffee beans? That.
Normally I make my coffee soap with at least a portion of coconut cream but I didn’t have any this time and the liquid is entirely coffee, brewed the Spanish way. This recipe also has Coco Butter.
Previously, I had been attempting various Essential Oil blends in my coffee soaps, but nothing that wowed me. I tried a non-scented version and then I even tried a soap with an non-natural coffee fragrance oil, which smelled nice but didn’t feel right for me. It smelled good but it smelled fake.
Then I discovered Coffee C02 oil from http://www.fresholi.co.uk/ and oh my God! It is natural and amazing! The aroma of the finished soap is deep, real and addicting. It is like the powerful rich scent of the fresh grounds themselves.
I LOVE this coffee scent. I am addicted!!!
