Cardamom & Pumpkin Spice Solid Coffee Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

1.5 oz. pumpkin spice ground coffee
.25 oz. allspice powder
2.5 oz. fine sea salt
2 oz. fine ground pink Himalayan salt
2 oz. white granulated sugar
.75 oz. cupuacu butter
1.75 oz. cocoa butter
2 oz. refined shea butter (or sal butter)
.1 oz. Cardamom True Sugar fragrance oil

Instructions:

You’ll need a six-cavity silicone gingerbread mold for my cardamom & pumpkin spice solid coffee scrub recipe. This recipe will yield four solid gingerbread shaped coffee scrubs.

Using a digital scale, weigh out the butters into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave at 50% power until melted. (Alternately you may use a double boiler.) Set aside.

In a separate glass container weigh out the spices, coffee, salt and sugar. Use a fork to mix the dry ingredients until they are thoroughly combined.

Now weigh out the fragrance oil and stir into the melted butter mixture. Mix to combine.

Slowly pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix.

Once the ingredients are evenly distributed throughout, pour the mixture into four of the gingerbread shaped cavities of your silicone mold.

Allow your solid coffee scrub to fully solidify and harden before removing them from the mold’s cavities. (You can put your mold in the refrigerator to speed up this part of the process. Placing your mold onto a cutting board before pouring the coffee scrub mixture into the mold will make it easier to transport.)

Once you’ve unmolded your solid coffee scrubs, wrap them tightly in foodservice film or place them individually into cello bags for gifting.

If you are making my cardamom & pumpkin spice solid coffee scrub recipe to sell, you’ll need to label your solid coffee scrubs appropriately to meet state and federal laws. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

To use your solid coffee scrubs, simply massage the bar – or a piece of the bar – onto wet skin in a warm-hot shower. Then rinse and pat dry. Be sure to store your solid coffee scrubs in a cool, dry location when not in use to extend the life of the product.

Live in a warmer climate? Make these solid coffee scrubs so they have a slightly higher melt point by making the following changes to my cardamom & pumpkin spice solid coffee scrub recipe: 1.5 oz. of shea butter (instead of 2 oz.) and 1 oz. cupuacu butter (instead of .75 oz.) This will also make them more shelf stable for shipping purposes.

This homemade coffee scrub recipe without coconut oil is inspired by the Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub. Scented with a fresh blend of orange, coconut and cardamom, my coffee scrub recipe contains naturally emollient sweet almond oil, mineral rich pink Himalayan salt, anti-inflammatory blood orange essential oil, brown sugar, and ground coffee to exfoliate, smooth and brighten dull, aging or acne prone skin. Plus there are free printable labels for gifting!

Pumpkin Spice Pie Soap Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

5.4 oz. clear detergent free melt and pour soap base (or similar)
13.35 oz. white detergent free melt and pour soap base (or similar)
3.25 oz. basic white melt and pour soap base (or similar)
.45 oz. sal butter
.05 oz. coffee, ground
.45 oz. brown sugar
.25 oz. pink Himalayan salt, fine ground
.25 oz. cardamom mocha fragrance oil (or similar)
.55 oz. pumpkin spice fragrance oil, of choice
25 drops stained glass sunflower orange liquid soap color (or similar)

Instructions:

You will need a Cake Slice Silicone Soap Mold and a digital scale. I specifically used the Crafter’s Choice™ Cake Slice Silicone Soap Mold for my pumpkin spice pie soap recipe however, you can find the similar (though lesser quality) silicone 8-cavity cake molds for about half the price with free prime shipping on Amazon here. In addition, a spray bottle filled with rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol is helpful, though not absolutely necessary. This pumpkin spice pie soap recipe will yield three pie slice soaps.

You’ll begin by making the pie crust.

Weigh out 5.4 oz. of clear detergent free melt and pour soap base. Cut into chunks and combine in a large glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Heat again if needed, in 30 second increments, stirring in between heatings until the base has melted.

Next, weigh out the coffee, brown sugar and the pink Himalayan salt. Stir into the melted clear soap base.

Now weigh out the cardamom mocha fragrance oil. I specifically used this fragrance oil, however, you can use a chocolate fragrance oil as well. Alternately, you can scent the entire soap with a pumpkin spice fragrance oil. The cardamom true sugar fragrance oil is pretty awesome too.

Now pour the soap equally into three of the mold cavities. Spritz with rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol then allow to cool and harden. (You can place your mold with the melted soap in the refrigerator to speed up the process. I find that the detergent free soap bases take a lot longer to fully harden than the ones with detergent.)

Once the soap has hardened, you’re ready for the next step.

Next you’ll make the pie filling.

To make the pie filling for the pumpkin spice pie soap recipe, you’ll begin by weighing out 13.35 oz. of your white detergent free melt and pour soap base. Cut the soap into chunks and combine in a large glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Heat again as needed, in 30 second increments, stirring in between heatings until the base has melted.

Add 25 drops of the orange liquid soap color. If you’d like a deeper orange for your soap, simply add more color. (Alternately you can also use a chunk from an orange color bar. In this case start with part of one square, stirring until it melts fully, then add additional color as needed.)

Now weigh out the pumpkin spice fragrance oil you’ve chosen to use and stir into the melted white soap base. (If your pumpkin spice fragrance oil has vanilla in it, it will cause the soap to turn brown, giving your soap a brownish-orange hue. However, if you want to keep the look of the orange pie “filling” as pictured, be sure to use a vanilla stabilizer for melt and pour soap to prevent the soap from turning brown.)

If you don’t want to use the pumpkin spice fragrance oil, you can easily substitute another “pie like” fragrance oil of your choice. Alternately you can also use .15 oz. of blood orange essential oil which blends perfectly with the chocolate “graham cracker crust.”

Learn how to make this easy pumpkin spice pie soap recipe! Made using a natural melt and pour soap base, this pumpkin spice pie soap recipe has a "chocolate graham cracker crust" and icing drizzle. It makes a wonderful homemade gift idea for the holidays for just about anyone.

Spritz the tops of the “pie crust” in your mold with alcohol, then pour the “pie filling” on top of the pie crust into each of the three cavities of your silicone mold. Spritz the tops of your freshly poured soap with alcohol to remove any air bubbles then allow to cool and harden fully.

 Once your pumpkin spice pie soaps have set up, you’re ready to add the icing drizzle!

Make your icing drizzle!

I specifically used the Crafter’s Choice basic white melt and pour soap base for the icing, not the detergent free. This is because this base sets up more quickly than the detergent free bases so it’s easy to work with for this application. You can, however, try it with the detergent free base if you like but I can’t vouch for how it will perform.

This is where it gets fun!

Weigh out .45 oz. sal butter. Place into a glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat the sal butter in the microwave at 50% power until almost melted.

Now weigh out 3.25 oz. of the basic white melt and pour soap base. Cut into chunks and combine with the sal butter in the glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Heat again if needed, in 30 second increments, stirring in between heatings until the base and sal butter have melted completely.

If you’d like to add some fun to your icing, you can add some flashing pearl, shimmer pearl or silvery white pearl mica to the mixture.

I didn’t scent my icing, but if you’d like to scent yours you can add up to .15 oz. of a fragrance oil of your choice.

Allow the “icing” mixture to cool slightly. You want to be able to pour it, but you don’t want it to just run right off the tops of your pie soaps. Don’t worry if you pour it too hot the first time. You’ll have extra “icing” to correct any mistakes. If it’s too hot on the first try, simply allow the base to cool a little longer, then pour it back over the tops of your pie soaps.

Remove your pie soaps from the silicone mold.

It makes a wonderful homemade gift idea for the holidays for just about anyone. Not a fan of pumpkin spice? No judgment here. There's also an alternate fragrance option!

Now pour a layer of “icing diagonally” across the tops of your soaps using a back and forth motion.

This can be messy so be sure to pour the “icing” with your pie soaps on a cutting board or another surface that is easily cleaned.

Now add some of the liquid orange soap color to the remaining “icing” to suit and mix well to combine. Repeat the process with the new color.
