Coffee Soap Recipe

This is for a 1 pound batch.

6 oz Olive Oil
6 oz Vegetable Oil
4 oz Coconut Oil

4 oz strong black coffee
2.08 oz lye

2 oz fresh goats milk

No scents.

Notes: Very small batch - almost not enough to use the stick blender! I heated the coconut oil in the microwave for 20 seconds to melt it, then added it to the other oils. Put the coffee in the fridge during breakfast. When I added the lye it smelled worse than the goat's milk did. When the lye mixture was about 120*, I added it to the oils - I hit trace almost instantly (I think because of the temps). Added the goat's milk - next time, I'll only add 1 oz; I was going for a latte color, instead I got iced coffee. :lol: Poured into the mold and put it in the ice chest for...maybe 8 hours. I pulled it out when it was all solid. Unmolded the next morning - the soap was hard and easy to remove.

It lathers up well, and has a very mild coffee scent. Feels very soft on the skin, and has a nice dark cream color.

Next time, I'll do a 2 pound batch (minimum), and not add as much goats milk. Sweet Geek *loves* it, so I call it a success. :grin:
