Nothing says winter like a warm cup of something delicious! Whether your go-to is a cup of hot coffee, a creamy latte, or a mug of hot chocolate, it’s a cozy feeling to curl up with your favorite warm drink on a cold winter’s day. It warms the soul (and the body!). For me, just the scent sends me to a happy place. In the winter I love the smell of a fresh pot of coffee- so much that I fill my home with scents of fragrant coffee candles! It’s like a trip to Starbucks….that smell when you walk through the door- heavenly.
Mmmmm…..I just love it!
I also love this next soap recipe! Mochas are my absolute favorite when it comes to coffee based drinks. I love the sweet creamy flavor and vanilla is typically my standard order. So when I came across a recipe that brought together my favorite drink and a moisturizing soap base- I knew it would be a winner in my books.
