Waste Not, Want Not

What do you do with all those leftover pots of coffee (as if!) and grounds?
Well at Black Rafter, I turn them into something beautiful and useful!
I use cold coffee as part of the lye mixture, and stir in leftover grounds at the end of the process. Throw in some Coffee essential oil and Vanilla fragrant oil, and voila! A beautiful, sweet smelling, and hard working exfoliating soap. Perfect at the kitchen sink, I wouldn’t be without it, as it cuts the grease when hand washing after a baking frenzy. More cookies to go with that coffee you know. And perfect for the gardener too. I wish you could smell it from computerland. It’s just starting its’ cure, ready in a months’ time!Coffee/vanilla
