Place several cubes of your goats milk soap base into a large 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup and melt in microwave in 30 second intervals. To do this simply set the microwave for 30 seconds, remove it from the microwave, stir and place back into microwave for another 30 second until fully melted.
Once all of your soap base is fully melted, stir in coffee grounds and essential oils. Stir well.
Pour into your soap mold. I was able to make 6 large bars in my silicone soap mold. Let sit untouched for about 60 minutes, or until fully cooled and solidified. Remove from soap mold and enjoy!
