DIY Coffee Infused Oil

Some good coffee in moderation can be a wonderful thing!!! I personally started drinking one cup a day about 1 1/2 years ago when my daughter was born, and have kept the ritual going. I rarely surpass the 1 cup since I tend to get a bit gittery if I do, but if you love coffee, you'll be happy to know that it can be used in other useful ways!!

I primarily made this oil to use in an eye cream formulation as well as a test firming whipped body butter. The cafeine in the coffee is said to reduce puffiness of the under eye area as it is known for increasing blood circulation to give the skin a more rejuvenated and refresehd/awake look. Caffeine in skin products is also said to help in tightening and firming the skin as well as help with cellulite! So I decided to give it a try.
