Hello fellow soapers

I've been making bath bombs and melts for a while but have only recently started making CP soap. I think I'm addicted already even though I've only made two batches so far. My first batch was peppermint and lemongrass which smells gorgeous and has a creamy lather and my other one was orange and cinnamon which lathers well but smells a lot more subtle. I would like to try coffee soap next but am struggling to source coffee EO. Any pointers would be most appreciated.

Happy soaping!

Hello Chrissie, welcome to the forum.

Some EO suppliers stock Coffee CO2 - I'm not sure how well it holds in soap though.

Hi and welcome Smiley
What about brewing a really strong coffee and substituting that for some of the water in your recipe?

Hey Chrissie, I started out with melt & pour too, but after doing that twice it felt fake and started looking into CP. And I just made 2 batches too! Started last sunday with my first CP Tongue

Nice to find someone in the same phase as me  :mwaha:
