DIY Coffee Bean Infused Almond Oil (Recipe 6)

Hello Maicurlies,

My oil infusion has finally come to an end. I know, I know you all are doing a little happy dance and saying fiiiiinnnaaalllly! Yup this is it, no more oil infusion frenzy.

coffee beansAs you probably guessed (thanks to the title and picture) the oil I will be sharing is my DIY Coffee Bean Infused Almond Oil! Doesn’t the coffee beans look oh sooooo good?!

Right, first off I need to stress how much I LOVE this oil!!! Of all the 6 in fusions I have done this is right up there along with my DIY Rose Infused Grapeseed Oil. As with most of my infused oils you can use this one for both your skin (face/body and scalp) as well as your hair.

For the hair:

  • Reduces hair shedding and said to reduce excessive hair loss because of the antioxidants present in caffeine.
  • Increases hair growth since caffeine promotes blood circulation in the scalp which promotes growth.
  • Known to darken the hair and slowdown the early onset of grey hairs (with frequent and consistent use)*
  • Adds sine and dimension to the hair due to the darkening effect of the oil

*Should you have bleached/blond or dyed hair you do not want to darken, I suggest not trying this oil.

For the skin:

  • The caffeine helps reduce puffy and dark circles under the eye.
  • Tightens the skin giving you a youthful fresh glow.
  • Its anti-inflammatory properties is said to reduces redness in the skin and inflammation.
  • Said to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
  • Known to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
  • Fights free radicals thanks to the antioxidants contained in caffeine.

Mixing Process:

I have a video up on my process:

NOTE: I am not a dermatologist nor a doctor. I provide this for informational purposes only so please consult with a professional before you apply anything new to your skin or hair. Should you be taking medication or creams from a medical professional please do not replace that with my DIY recipe – consult your medical professional first! If you are allergic to any of the ingredients I use do not use them. Do a small patch test on the inside of your arm when trying anything new before applying it all over your hair/skin. Always ensure to dilute the Essential Oils (EO) in a carrier oil as they can cause skin irritations if used undiluted. If you are pregnant you should NOT use any EO.

If you try this please let me know how it turns out. If you make your own Infused Coffee Oil I would love to hear from you!

Thanks!

      Hi Chloe,

      The oil will still have the same expiry date as normal so just check the date on your oil. The addition of the coffee beans shouldn’t impact the oil as long as you have kept water, moisture and potential bacteria away while making the oil (make sure the tools you use are sanitized and you are not working with wet hand/tools). I have not had any issue with the oil going bad or bacteria growth in any of the infused oils I have made. Hope that helps and happy mixing! πŸ˜€

    I love your blog! Thank you for sharing! What’s the shelf life of the coffee infused oil? Can I store in a plastic container or does it need to be glass?

      Hi AquaLeo,
      Thank you so much. I love sharing and learning so thank you for taking the time to read my post πŸ™‚
      The oil will still have the same shelf life as normal so just take a look at the shelf life of the oil you are using. As long as you are not adding a liquid (e.g. water, aloe vera juice etc to the oil) then it should be good. You don’t have to store it in a glass container although some people are worry about potential chemicals in plastic but you don’t have to use glass. I would recommend an airtight container regardless of glass or plastic, just to help keep the elements out of the oil. Would love to hear how it goes if you try the oil.
      Thanks again!

      Hi Talisa,

      Depending on how strong your coffee beans are and how long you let them infuse it will smell of coffee. Mine has a really strong yummy coffee scent after 2 weeks of infusing. Thanks for stopping by and commenting πŸ™‚
