Citrus Burst Soap

Citrus Burst Soap

Bursts of citrus and lemon make using this soap a divine luxury. Make this recipe as a gift and your friends will love you for it.

What you need

4 ounce melt and pour soap
5 drops of orange essential oil
5 drops of Lemon essential oil.
Orange or yellow food coloring


Melt your soap down using Melt and Pour Soap base. 

Once melted, add the lemon and orange oils and stir in the food color. Keep stirring until completely mixed and then pour into your soap molds.

These soaps look great when wrapped up in cellophane and a dried orange or lemon slice attached.

You can use pure soap bars grated down from your supermarket instead of the Melt and Pour base or buy soap flakes from your health food store.

This recipe uses the Melt & Pour Soap Making Method
