Top 5 ways to use coffee beans!

This is a must read post for all you coffee lovers! Even for those who do not drink coffee regularly, I’m sure you will be inspired by these diy ways to repurpose coffee grounds. So let’s brew that pot of coffee in honor of these top 5 ideas.

  1. Scrub away pots & pans

Add a few spoons of coffee grounds to a cheese cloth or dish cloth. Tie at the end with a rubber band or a hair tie. Now you can scrub away without worrying about scratching your dishware.

  1. Eliminate refrigerator smells

Pour a cup full of coffee grounds unto a dish or cup and find a nice place in the refrigerator for it. Just like baking soda, coffee grounds naturally help to eliminate odors.

  1. Fertilize your plants

Coffee grounds are excellent nitrogen rich fertilizers that can be added to your home garden. We would recommend using in your garden if you have azaleas, hydrangeas, rhododendrons, camellias, roses, or other acid loving plants. In addition, they help to attract worms while repelling slugs, nails, ants & even cats (if mixed with dry orange peels)!

  1. Make Energizing Candles

Add 1 cup of wax candle remnants, to a small metal or heat safe glass bowl. Place over the top of a small saucepan that has already been filled halfway with water. Bring water to a simmer and keep a close eye on your wax as it melts (About 5 minutes). Place dry coffee grounds in a paper cup (about ½ inch from bottom) and place a candle wick in the center of the pile. Pour in melted wax, taking care to keep candlewick from being submerged. Let it set for 2 hours and voila you have a new candle

  1. Refreshing eye serum

After all of that coffee we consumed, it only makes sense that we would create an equally energizing beauty product. Our double shot caffeine serum contains CAFFEINE EXTRACT (Caffeine extract is effective in reducing dark circles under the eye area. Caffeine, when used as a topically applied ingredient, is a natural anti-inflammatory. Wrinkles and dark circles around the eye form as a result of swelling which can occur through the thinnest layer of skin. This swelling can lead to puffiness, which results in bruising. Since the area of the skin is thin, these bruises can appear easily and become a regular part of the appearance, causing dark under eye circles to form.  Caffeine also has the ability to energize the area underneath the skin, through the inner surface layers of the skin.), EYESERYL® (tetrapeptide with anti-edema, helps to reduce accumulation of fluid under skin, properties with proven efficacy in reducing puffy eyebags in as little as 15 days), VITAMIN C, VITAMIN E, HYALURONIC ACID, and SYN®-AKE (Small peptide that mimics the activity of Waglerin 1, a polypeptide that is found in the venom of the Temple Viper, Tropidolaemus wagleri. Clinical trials have shown that SYN®-AKE is capable of reducing mimic wrinkles by inhibiting muscle contractions.). This ultra-packed concoction is one of our favorite ways to use coffee every day. I’m sure you will agree.
