DIY Coffee Eye Cream Ingredients:

⅛ cup beeswax pastilles

½ teaspoon jojoba oil

⅛ cup of coconut oil

½ teaspoon vitamin E oil

⅛ cup coffee infused oil, don’t worry I’ll teach you how

2-ounce jar

How to make Coffee Infused Oil:

Let’s start with the coffee-infused oil. It takes about 1 hour but the result is worth it. Plus, you can just set it to simmer on low and let it infuse.

Using a double boiler add few inches of water to the bottom saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and 1 cup of almond oil and ½ cup of fresh, unused coffee grounds or beans to the top saucepan.

Simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Add more water to the bottom saucepan if it evaporates. Be cautious to not overheat the oil as it will destroy the benefits of the oil.

After simmering for 1 hour, let cool. Then using a fine cheesecloth or paper towel strain oil over a jar. Oil will store for 1 to 2 years in an airtight container.

How to make DIY Coffee Eye Cream:

Now we are ready to start the Coffee Infused Tightening Eye Cream. Using the double broiler method again add beeswax to a large glass measuring bowl. Simmer over low heat until beeswax is melted. Next, add jojoba oil, coconut oil, vitamin E oil, and coffee infused oil individually to the measuring bowl. Stir each time you add oil.

Remove from heat and transfer to an airtight container. I recommend jars or tins. Place container(s) of tightening DIY coffee eye cream in the refrigerator to solidify. You can keep in your beauty drawer or in the refrigerator if you have puffy eyes. The coolness will help reduce puffiness.

Yields: 2 ounces

      Great question, there is no true coffee essential oil. Companies may market it as an essential oil, but unless they are extracting it from the leaves or roots of the plant it’s not a true eo. Most likely it’s a synthetic fragrance oil which won’t contain the benefits of caffeine. If you’re not a coffee drinker and therefore don’t have coffee on hand you can also make green tea infused oil. Or you could swap for essential oil with youthful benefits like frankincense. I hope that helps!
