Coffee Bath Salts
This unconventional coffee recipe makes a great do-it-yourself gift idea! But don't eat them!
1/2 - 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup ground Café Campesino coffee
6 Tbsp cinnamon
reusable coffee filter, or several paper filters, in a coffeemaker basket
3 lb. container of Epsom salts
1 cup baking soda (optional)
2 - 4 cup measuring cup
Large flat saucepan
Large mixing bowl
Warm the olive oil in the measuring cup in a saucepan of boiling water.
Mix in the coffee first, then the cinnamon, stirring to blend as the mixture heats. Continue to infuse for 20 minutes on the stove, stirring from time to time.
Pour the coffee-cinnamon-oil mixture through the coffee filter into the large mixing bowl, one-third at a time.
Discard the grounds and keep the oil. Let it cool to room temperature.
Mix the infused oil with the Epsom salts and baking soda.
