Enjoy this homemade soap recipe that uses coffee grounds and oatmeal to create a wonderful exfoliating soap that's great both in the kitchen as well as in the shower.
My son helped me create this recipe and it remains his favorite to this day. Bursting with the spicy scents of ginger, cinnamon and clove, the juicyness of sweet orange and the exotic scent of patchouli this bar is truly a winner in my books.
