Use up those hotel soaps!
The process of cutting up and re-using hotel soap came from a blog I read titled "At home with the farmer's wife", the link is below if anyone is interested. Since I didn't feel like getting "real" soap I decided to improvise and use her "process" while adding my own twist.
Bonus! I had everything I needed on hand so this project was free!

*HAPPY THOUGHTS*

  • How to make a cinnamon soap. Cinnamon Coffee Soap - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather you supplies for two small bars I used 8 small hotel bars. These happened to be the same, but you can use different soaps, as long as the fragrance isn't too strong.

    Since I was using ground coffee and cinnamon oil I figured the two scents would cancel out anything else.

    You will now grate the soap into med. pieces. Since my grater is horrid I just used a knife. The soap crumbled very easy.

    Next you mix all the ingredients
    *Cut up soap
    *6 drops of cinnamon essential oil
    *2-3 tablespoons of ground coffee
    *Enough water to make mixture wet

    Now microwave for 30 second increments until the soap bubbles.

  • Step 4

    Now spoon your mixture into a SILICONE ice cube mold if you have one, or use an oiled muffin pan as "the farmer's wife" suggested.

    Let your soap rest a day or until it is hard enough to pop out of the mold.
    Once I got mine out I smoothed the rough edges just to make it prettier. :)

    Now that your soap is done, package it! I wanted to be able to smell the soap while it was in the package so I left vents in the sides. this will also allow it to further dry out.

    I put the soap in a small coffee bag for gifting.
