Coffee Infused Oil

Did you know that caffeine has major benefits for the skin when applied topically?  You probably knew that caffeine can majorly help cellulite but it also helps with de-puffing and reducing inflammation as well as fading dark circles and smoothing fine lines!  For today, let’s learn how to get make coffee infused oil then once that’s done I’ve got a super good DIY or BUY post for a coffee eye cream!

First off, let me say that this process is very simple.  It’s as simple as it looks but you want to choose your ingredients carefully in order to get the most effective oil.  I suggest you use whole organic coffee beans and grind them yourself.  I believe this will give you the most potent, fresh caffeine oil.  Next, you need to pick your oil.  Because of the DIY I’m sharing next, I chose rosehip seed oil.  Even if you don’t plan on doing the DIY and you stop at a caffeinated rose hip oil-you’ll have a highly effective, anti aging treatment that’s better than most eye creams because it doesn’t contain a filler like water.

The trickiest part about this DIY is straining the coffee grounds.  I used a coffee filter because I didn’t have cheesecloth.  This proved to be challenging to not waste my oil.   I’ve included pics on how I strained it.  It actually turned out to be pretty efficient.

Coffee Infused Oil

Coffee Infused Oil:

  1. Create a double boiler by filling a medium sized pot 1/2 way full with water.
  2. Add oil and coffee to a sprouted glass pyrex measuring cup.
  3. Place in the pot and place the pot on the stove top.
  4. Turn stove top on low (around a 3)
  5. Heat for 1 hour.
  6. Remove glass cup from stove top.
  7. Using another spouted glass pyrex measuring cup, place a wire strainer over it and a coffee filter in the strainer. (see pics)
  8. Pour your mixture into the coffee filter and allow 1-2 hours for the oil to filter through.  You might use a spoon to press the oil into the filter-this will help extract more oil.
  9. Transfer oil to a jar or glass container that can be sealed.

How to Infuse Coffee into Oil

Caffeine has quite the list of benefits for skin and I’m excited to experiment with my new coffee oil!  You don’t have to wait for a DIY with this oil.  You can use it once it cools directly on the skin!  Dab it under the eyes or smooth it on your legs after a shower!

  1. Jenni, this sound amazing! I have used the 100% pure caffeine eye cream which is great (and priced very fairly) but love the idea of making this, especially since you could use it all over your body. Was thinking of maybe doing this with coconut oil if I wanted to use it all over, since that would be much more economical than the rosehip. What do you think?

  3. Hey Jenny,
    Would using coffee essential oil have the same caffeine benefits? I want to add it to shea butter because I worry that heating the butter enough to extract the coffee compounds would kill the benefits of the shea butter (or any oil used).

    1. Hi Roxanne-There is no caffeine in coffee essential oil. I’ve heard varying opinions on this but from what I’ve researched and from a reputable source, there isn’t the caffeine benefit in the essential oil.

  4. I would not use wire or metal when creating anything natural like this. Glass or wood is what you’re supposed to use to make stuff like this.

    1. Jenn-I’ve never heard of a Salton Yogurt Maker so I’m excited to check that out-I am currently really into infusing oils and have read some on crockpot infusing but haven’t done that yet. Thanks for leaving her blog-I love to check this stuff out!

  5. Hello Jenni, I have a question for you. Am I risking destroying the benefits of the rose hip seed oil, or the caffeine, by having it over heat for an hour in my double boiler? I’m NEW to DIY facial products. I’ve been using a DIY face cleanser for sometime but I’m looking to make a caffeine & rose hip seed oil infusion that I can apply with a small rollerball glass container under my eyes. Your recipe sounds GREAT. I would love confirmation that I won’t destroy the benefits of the RHS oil in the process.

    Thank you 😊

    1. Janice-You are correct-heat will compromise some of the benefits. It is best to not use heat and soak your oil and coffee for 4-6 weeks allowing time to infuse it. However, I’ve got a recipe where you simply add a coffee bean to your eye serum-it is so easy and works nicely-you can definitely tell the coffee infuses simply by adding the bean because of the smell! Find that serum HERE.
