This post contains advertising for EILLES KAFFEE Have you ever heard of coffee soap? This soap with a light orange note and peeling effect is an original Christmas gift to make yourself. Christmas is just around the corner and that’s why in this blog post I’ll explain to you how you can easily make coffee soap yourself with EILLES KAFFEE.
In this blog post I will not only explain to you how you can make coffee soap yourself. It is also the start of a great campaign by Mone from machsschoen* and me. This year we got together and created an Advent calendar for you with lots of Christmas inspiration. Along with EILLES COFFEE* can I open the first door today. You can find out more about the coffee manufacturer below, but for now I’ll show you how you can make beautiful Christmas soap from coffee yourself. Let’s go!
Coffee soap: Small, inexpensive Christmas present
After drinking the delicious coffee from EILLES KAFFEE, I was able to give the coffee grounds a second life and use them in my coffee soap. Not only does it smell very pleasant, the coffee grounds also provide an intensive peeling effect when washing your hands. This means that it is not only beneficial for your skin, it also makes it beautifully supple. And because you can make coffee soap yourself so easily and the materials are quite cheap, it is also the ideal gift for Christmas.
Creative Christmas calendar 2023
Mone and I have prepared a Christmas calendar full of inspiration and competitions for you. We take turns showing you creative ideas for the Christmas season and can give away great prizes to you via Instagram with our respective sponsor. So accompany us through the Christmas season and don’t miss any ideas or competitions!
Prepare an espresso or caffé crema from EILLES KAFFEE, enjoy it and then dry the coffee grounds.
Melt the raw soap according to the package instructions. This can usually be done in the microwave.
Now add a few drops of orange oil to the liquid soap and stir it in with a wooden stick.
In the next step, pour the liquid soap into the silicone mold and quickly add the coffee grounds with a spoon.
Before a skin forms, stir in the coffee grounds and allow the soap to harden for 30 minutes. It’s even quicker if you put them in the fridge.
Now the finished soap is wrapped in a strip of baking paper. This is fixed with an adhesive strip.
Cut a tag out of a piece of construction paper and write “coffee soap” on the tag with the gold and white pen.
Finally, place a dried orange slice on the soap, tie it with glitter ribbon and attach the label.
The coffee soap with an orange note and peeling effect is ready!
EILLES COFFEE – 150 years of highest roasting expertise
Of course, the different types of Eilles coffee not only fit my Christmas DIY, but are also perfect for Advent. Because who doesn’t like to enjoy a fragrant Advent coffee with cookies and stollen?
Most of you will definitely already know EILLES KAFFEE. This year is a very special one for the coffee manufacturer: EILLES KAFFEE has been around for 150 years now, because in 1873 Joseph Eilles recognized the distinctive coffee pleasure of fresh coffee beans.
His roasting expertise was based on the highest demands on the quality of the green coffee and a deep passion for refining it – and this still applies to all types of coffee today. Because high-quality coffee stays fresh and aromatic for a particularly long time. And you can enjoy the full coffee aroma if the beans are ground shortly before preparation. EILLES COFFEE* offers coffee beans in its RÖSTMEISTER series in the Caffé Crema and Espresso variants – the difference between the varieties lies in their roasting.
EILLES COFFEE RASTING MASTER espresso
The coffee beans are roasted longer for espresso than for caffé crema. It’s easy to recognize because the espresso beans are darker in color. Espresso tastes more intense thanks to its fine bitter substances and has an invigorating and full-bodied taste. You can find further information here.*
EILLES COFFEE RÖSTMESTER Caffé Crema
The beans for the Caffé Crema are roasted a little lighter, making the taste lighter and more balanced, but still aromatic. In combination with milk, Caffè Crema becomes the perfect treat. You can find further information here.*
