Pumpkin Spice Latte Melt and Pour Soap Recipe

How many pumpkin spice lattes have you had this year?  I haven't had any, unless you count Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte K-Cups.  Those I have had a few of so far this year.  I found a way to satisfy my cravings for PSL without breaking the bank or drinking a lot of calories with this pumpkin spice latte melt and pour soap.  It smells amazing, and the coffee gives it a little boost of scrubbing power.  Caffeine is also said to help with cellulite, so it makes a good body bar as well as a hand soap.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Melt and Pour Soap Recipe


I used melt and pour soap because I wanted a quick, easy project.  This is a seasonal soap, and I didn't want to wait for weeks while the soap cured.  It's best to use a suspension soap base because of the coffee grounds, but you don't have to.  I used a shea butter soap base that is not for suspension, and I'll give you some tips to help the coffee and pumpkin pie spice stay floating in the soap

Ingredients

Directions

Normally, when you add spices to melt and pour soap, it doesn't want to mix well.  You'll be left with small clumps of the spice throughout the soap.  This won't hurt you or your soap, but it won't look as pretty.  A trick is to mix the pumpkin pie spice with coconut oil and then add it to the soap.  This will help the spice mix into the melted soap better.

Before you make the soap, melt the coconut oil in a small dish and add the pumpkin pie spice.  Stir well.  It will be thick, but it will incorporate into the soap fine.


Then cut the melt and pour soap base in to 1/2 inch chunks.  Melt with a double boiler or in the microwave.  Do not use direct heat to heat soap.  I melted mine in the microwave with a Pyrex measuring cup for 30 seconds and then stirred.  There were a few small chunks of soap left, so I put it in for another 20 seconds.  

Add the coconut oil and pumpkin pie spice mixture and stir well.  Let cool for a few minutes and add the coffee grounds.  

If you're using a suspension base, you can pour now.  If you don't have a suspension base, the coffee will sink to the bottom if you pour now.  Let the soap cool until a film forms on the top.  Then stir well and quickly pour into the mold.  This helps stop the heavy ingredients from sinking to the bottom.

Once you've poured it, let it cool completely.  Then pop out of the mold.  If it doesn't release, put it in the freezer for 10 minutes and it should pop right out.


This pumpkin spice latte melt and pour recipe is simple to make and takes about 10 minutes until pour.  These make great bars for the bath or the kitchen.  Coffee naturally reduces odors, so I use a coffee soap in the kitchen to use after I cook with onions or garlic.
