How To Make Coffee Infused Oil

Coffee Infused Oil

I recently made some coffee infused oil to use as an ingredient in some upcoming DIY coffee beauty items I’m planning and thought I’d share the process with you guys. Coffee infused oil is actually super easy to make – it’s literally only a 2 step process.

Happy Earth Day! In celebration of today, I thought I’d share with you guys how to use recycled coffee grounds in your garden. One of the most common uses for recycled coffee grounds is to add them to your garden. Coffee shops like Starbucks will even give you some of their used coffee grounds for just this purpose. It’s a cheap, easy, and practical way to give back to the earth from which we take – as long as you do it right.
