Though you may not be a coffee drinker, you have to admit there was something alluring about those old coffee commercials. Waking up to greet the sun with a hot cup of caffeine juice in your hands, wearing a bathrobe that’s a little too old while a golden retriever lightly wags his tail behind you…ok, that’s a bit much. But the enlivening scent of Coffee is now literally a drop away. True to form, Coffee essential oil has the rich aroma of roasted beans, and is slightly sweeter smelling than a black cup of coffee.
The strong scent of coffee essential oil makes it a great addition to lip balms, soaps, kitchen degreasers, shampoo, or just to diffuse and wake up to the smell of roasted coffee. It also may help reduce cellulite.
Coffea Arabica is native to Ethiopia, where it can grow up to 40 feet tall. The leaves are oblong and glossy green, and the plant produces white flowers. It is the beans, or ” cherries” that are cold pressed to produce this delicious smelling Coffee essential oil.
