Making your own homemade soap has so many benefits, but I especially love that I can choose my own scent and colour combinations. This Hazelnut Coffee Soap Recipe is one of my favourites because it smells absolutely amazing, just like a freshly brewed cup of hazelnut coffee. A simple melt and pour shea butter base is used in this homemade soap recipe, so it is perfect for beginners, and even those who just want something easy to make. The addition of fresh hazelnut coffee grounds and cinnamon bark essential oil combine to give this soap a wonderful scent. The benefits of having a real coffee grounds in this soap, is not just for the flavour and the look, but the grounds will make your skin nicely smooth as you use this soap. You can also choose to recycle your used coffee grounds in this soap recipe!
I’ve used hazelnut coffee grounds in this recipe, but if you don’t have this particular flavour, you can use an unflavoured coffee grounds or add hazelnut fragrance instead of cinnamon. You can pretty much use any kind of flavoured coffee to make this soap, just pick that you have in your kitchen cupboard.
Cut your soap base into 1 inch pieces and place in measuring cup. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir very well. If not completely melted, repeat at 10 second intervals until fully melted, stirring in between.

Pour mixture into the soap moulds.
Lightly spray with rubbing alcohol to prevent bubbles from forming on the soap.
