More on Lavender later. I only bring it up because that's what led to our experiment with
coffee soap....which turned out awesome!
After studying several Pinterest (Alex's Board) recipes for soap, I decided on the extremely simple combination of 3oz of my fave Italian Roast, grounds included, mixed with 1/2 container goat's milk soap blocks from Michael's Crafts.
Melt the soap in the microwave and stir in the coffee, just like making fudge.
@ddrquilter says it looks like chocolate ice cream. It does!
Which is cool, but, any idea how I can get more coffee color in my soap?
And @Scooquilt is right, it does the trick for a nice scrubby soap to exfoliate, which is exactly what I wished for:)
Thanks, Alex, for finding a new craft for us to try!
