DIY Crockpot Coffee Soap and Body Scrub

DIY Crockpot Coffee Soap and Body Scrub

DIY Crockpot Coffee Soap and Body Scrub | organizedCHAOSonline

I love soap and I love coffee. So I’m thinkin’, why not smash them together? I found a coffee soap recipe that’s made in a crockpot. It looked simple enough, so off I went  to grab the few ingredients I didn’t already have at home. I was out of olive oil and coffee, so I quickly snagged those. Last on my list… Lye. I struck out at two grocery stores. The Wal-Mart girl was very disinterested and said she’d “never heaaaarrrrd of lyyyyyye”. Lowe’s directed me to the industrial-sized fertilizer aisle where , shocker, I found no little bottles of lye. This is what I was looking for…

My last stop, before I was going to bag the whole idea, was at the neighborhood hardware store.  This extremely polite kid directed me to a shelf right by the checkstand, and there it was, finally! As I’m grabbing bottles and gushing about how excited I was to have finally found it – you guys are great!oh my gosh, now that I’ve found it, I’m buying a ton of it! – blah, blah, blah, I noticed him and the clerk exchanging weird looks and giving me half-assed courtesy smiles. When I dumped my three bottles on the counter and told them what I was making, they explained the odd looks. Turns out the store has to keep the stuff close to the counter as apparently it’s a main component of meth (which explains the scarcity of Lye on shelves). Local meth chefs had been  making a habit of waiting for the store to get busy, then scooping it off the shelves and out the door, so they keep a close eye on it. Yikes. Have you ever felt like a criminal even when you know you’re not? I promised the clerk a bar of soap to prove my innocence.  Moving on…

Crockpot Coffee Soap

Supplies needed:

  • Coffee
  • Olive Oil
  • Palm Oil (Canola oil)
  • Coconut Oil
  • Almond or Castor oil
  • Lye

I used the step by step tutorial from Heart, Hands, Home. The project was going well until my crockpot went turbo on me and cooked the holy hell out of the soap. This is what their’s looked like after cooking in the crockpot, then putting into the Pringles can mold…

Nice and fluffy!

And here’s what mine looked like…

A hard-as-a-rock, oozing hot mess!

Their soap dry and cut into bars…

Perfection!

Mine…

I couldn’t even get a slice cut in one piece to display.

I wrote this project off as a fail and walked away from it. When the hubs came home and saw the mess on the kitchen counter, he suggested power tools. I laughed. He wasn’t kidding…

You ROCK, my contractor husband!

He totally saved my soap. The bars were perfect, and this soap is awesome! Now, obvs I made some small errors somewhere in the construction. My first problem was the cooker:  I used a crockpot I had since replaced because the heating element had gone haywire and cooked everything on, like, broil. My second problem was the cook:  I packed the soap into the mold too tightly, which caused it to push itself out of the mold. In addition, I’ve mentioned my personality glitch before, that when a recipe suggests one drop of something , I assume three would be better? Yeah Pat, not so much. Stick to the recipe numb nuts.

And here’s how my soap turned out. Pretty cool, huh?

Success! Note to self: Stuff table saw into my soapmaking supply box.

To go with the soap, I wanted to make a coffee body scrub. This one is a no-brainer and you can whip it up in minutes. It smells like fresh brewed coffee and makes your skin feel like baby butt cheeks.

Coffee Body Scrub

I followed the recipe:

  • 1/2 cup ground coffee
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • a few drops vanilla (or whatev) essential oil

Just mix in a clean jar, label it and add a scoop. Voila! Seriously, this takes under five minutes to make.

Art Expression Frame – Our Family Project

colton's artwork

Source: organizedCHAOSonline

This is the project that our family does for, pretty much, every occasion. I took a picture of my gift from Mother’s Day two years ago from my son, Colton.

We just purchase a picture frame with some sort of matting. We choose the thick matting  so Colton has a lot of room to express his artistic side (place stickers). It’s a fun project and there’s almost no cleanup. Now THAT’S speaking my language.

SUPPLIES:

  • Frame with matting
  • Stickers (we let Colton pick his out – regarless of their relevance to the holiday)
  • Glue
  • Art supplies

Instructions: Go to town. There’s no right way to do it. Place a photo in the middle and you’ve got yourself a gift.

20 Minute DIY Spa Gift

20 Minute DIY Spa Gift

Reader note: I had posted this on another blog as a great idea for brides. Since then, we’ve received a ton of feedback and photos from those of you who have made your own spa pack. Do you even understand how exciting it is hearing from you and seeing your projects? Like, the most exciting-ist. Yeah, that’s a word. Granted, the mags are talking about stories we know the end result of but the idea is the same.

So, keep it up and send us your photos!

This whole spa pack cost less than $20 and took me around 20 minutes to create. This is literally the quickest DIY project on the face of this planet. Literally, meaning that I’ve looked up every DIY project ever created. Okay, no, but I must have you know that it’s so easy peasy.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked to join a friend at a party or received a last-minute invite and didn’t have a gift. I’m the type who can’t just swing by the store, grab something, throw it in a gift bag and run. I have to have some sort of “I gave this a bit of thought and effort” gift.

Who doesn’t like a little pampering?

Included in the gift:

  • Hand Scrub
  • Leg Silk
  • Face Peel
  • Gossip mags
  • Scoops
  • Loofah
  • Face Towel

I also had shipping labels I printed the name of the mixture on. I cut it out in an oval shape and added a ribbon for a little flair. I grabbed some ribbon from my random smattering of craft supplies.

In order to pull this gift together, I went around my house and gathered anything “new” I had in the way of spa gifts and spa supplies. The rest I purchased at the store. In a quick run and grab shopping trip, I grabbed:

  • 3 Glass Jars ($1.99 each)
  • 3 Coffee Scoops ($1.29 each)
  • 2 Gossip Mags ($6)

I had the rest of the supplies at home. No joke, it’s super easy stuff.

So, in all, I have three jars of at-home spa treatments, scoops so you don’t have to dig  your hands in, a loofah, a face towel, two magazines, ribbon, labels, a basket and I’m out the door!

Spa in a Jar Recipes

Face Peel (like an entire face pore strip)

  • Gelatine – unflavored
  • Milk

Instructions: Mix 1 tbs of unflavored gelatin with 1-2 tbsp of milk. This will create a chunky paste. Microwave for about 10-15 seconds and apply immediately to your face. Let dry for around 15 minutes (your face shouldn’t move easily). Peel.

Hand Scrub (people say it’s like the Mary Kay scrub)

  • Sugar
  • Dawn with Oil of Olay

Instructions: Pour the jar 3/4 full of sugar. Add Dawn liquid. Stir. Add whichever ingredient you need in order to create a gritty/liquid consistency. These instructions are extremely specific. No, they’re not.

Scrub-a-dub-dub those hands and rinse with water. They are silky smooth.

Source: OneGoodThingbyJillee.com

Silky Legs

  • Olive Oil
  • Lemon Juice
  • Sugar

Instructions: Mix 1-1/4 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of olive oil and 3 tbsp of lemon juice. Using a jar as small as the ones I was using the mixture reached the top quickly. Stir the oil and sugar to allow the levels to go down a bit and then add the citrus.

How to use silky legs (source: militaryfit-bombshell):

  1. Soak your legs in the tub for 5 minutes.
  2. Shave your legs.
  3. Rub some of this mixture all over your legs. The sugar will help rub off all dirt and dead skin. Rub, rub. Feels like a mini massage.
  4. Rinse it all off, shave again. I would use one razor per leg if you have two. You will be rinsing this razor a lot. I was GROSSED out by the amount of dead skin I was “shaving” off. It was insane! Trust me, you’ll see.
  5. Rub your legs again! Second coat of wax, oh yeah.
  6. Rinse off! You can use a mild soap to help get some of the oil off.
  7. Lotion your legs up, and feel the silkiness!

Enjoy your 20 minutes, under $20 spa gift!
