Enjoying a caffeinated drink isn’t the only way to get a caffeine boost. In fact, caffeine can be absorbed through the skin, giving you a little extra (through probably very subtle) dose of energy for the day.
Sure it’s easy to find coffee scented products at the store, but you can easily make a bar or two of coffee soap right at home. Not only will you be making excellent use of some used coffee grounds, it’s also exciting to make something you can use daily and that smells absolutely delicious.
In just a few hours, you’ll have yourself a homemade bar of soap that smells like sweet vanilla latte. In retrospect, I would recommend putting in a lot of coffee grounds into the mix — maybe double or more of what I put in. The coffee smell will almost be nonexistent if you put too little, which is something you probably don’t want after putting in all the effort.
You might also want to note that these soaps should be placed on a soap dish, to prevent staining your countertops.
In addition to making your hands germ-free, the coffee grounds inside the soap will also help to exfoliate and soften the skin, making your hands soft and clean at the same time. The best part is, you’ll be making great use of all the leftover coffee grounds you get after brewing a cup of coffee!
