Coffee is one of the most popular beverages in the world; however, it is much more than just a common beverage. The oil from coffee is used in skin care, to increase the skin's blood circulation; in candle making, to fragrance a room; in baking, to enhance the flavour of a food, and in gardening, to keep pests away. Making coffee oil is not very difficult, so if you're up to the challenge, making your own can be very profitable.

  1. 1

    Pour 2 cups of olive oil into a small crock pot. Add 56.7gr of coffee beans; the beans can be either green or roasted. Cover and cook on low for roughly six hours, making sure to stir the mixture every couple of hours.

  2. 2

    Strain the oil by pouring it through a kitchen strainer to remove the coffee beans. Toss the used beans in the trash. Pour the remaining oil through a cheesecloth two or three times, to filter it and make it as pure as possible.

  3. 3

    Pour the coffee oil into small, airtight glass containers. For pure oil, 56.7gr containers work well.

Tips and warnings

  • Coffee beans can be purchased at a local coffee shop or supermarket.
  • Coffee filters may be used in place of cheesecloth to filter the oil.
  • Make a coffee-oil blend by adding other essential oils, such as cinnamon, orange or vanilla, to the coffee oil.
