Cardamom & Pumpkin Spice Solid Coffee Scrub Recipe
© Rebecca D. Dillon
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 on How to Make Solid Coffee Scrub Bars:
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.
