I have finally come to the end of my oil infusion obsession as promised. The final oil is my Coffee Infused Almond Oil (one of my favorites).
All I do is infuse roasted coffee beans in almond oil for 2 weeks and then separate the oil from the coffee and presto it’s done! I put the coffee beans in a coffee filter to make the clean up easier and then add an essential oil – in my case peppermint.
The oil can be used for both skin/hair. It helps hair growth, gives the hair shine, limits hair shed, helps rejuvenate the skin, provides a glow to the skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles with frequent use and can help reduce the appearance of fine scars and stretch marks. I have more details about the benefits on my blog:
I do have a few things I want to point out:
*If you are caffeine sensitive, allergic to coffee or hate the smell of coffee then this oil is not going to be for you because it has an extreme coffee scent (yum!).
*You MUST use coffee beans – instant coffee won’t work.
*The oil might darken your hair with frequent use
*Always make sure to dilute the essential oil in enough carrier oil to avoid skin irritations.
*Check with a professional dermatologist if you are trying anything new on your skin or hair.
*This is video for informational purposes only, I am not a doctor, dermatologist nor a medical professional therefore this is just an informative video and the oil should not be used to replace anything given to you by a medical professional.
