These lotion bars smell amazing! Quick and easy Tutorial on How To make Coffee Beans Vanilla Latte Massage Bars - inspired by LUSH! DIY by The Makeup Dummy

What I used:

  • 6 tbsp. cocoa butter – Get it here
  • 1 tbsp. Shea butter – Get it here
  • 1 tbsp. (coffee-infused) oil – Get it here
  • 5 drops of vanilla/benzoin essential oil
  • a handful of coffee beans
  • 1/2 teaspoon vitamin E oil (optional)

I melted my cocoa butter and Shea butter in a double boiler.

Take your double boiler off the heat and add 1 tablespoon of (coffee-infused) oil. I used almond oil. You can also add 1 teaspoon of vitamin E oil.

Using coffee-infused oil gives these coffee lotion bars extra cellulite busting power! If you want to use coffee-infused oil (I used cofee-infused almond oil), you can find a tutorial on how to infuse oils with coffee in my cellulite-busting lotion post.

In this DIY tutorial I share both a cold and hot method to infuse your oils with coffee.

Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract for a nice vanilla scent. It smells amazing with the coffee beans!

Distribute the coffee beans evenly over your mold. Fill up the molds with the mixture. The coffee beans will start to float on top. I made 4 lotion bar hearts in total with this mixture.

Wait for the lotion bars to harden. If patience is not your strong suit, pop them in the fridge like I did!

My soap fell apart when I went to take it out of the mold. What did I do wrong?

Hi Jill, I don't remember exactly, but I've found a very similar mold online: http://amzn.to/2yJxWK5 (affiliate). These should give you the same result!
