Instructions 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 broiler 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 with store for 1 to 2 years in an airtight container.

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 an oil.
Remove from heat and transfer to an airtight container. I recommend jars or tins. Place container(s) of Coffee Infused Tightening 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.
