Here?s a pretty little soap to brighten up your showers!
Mixing the delicious scents of lemon and lime in a double layer for a refreshing and beautiful soap that is sure to please- it?s just perfect for these dog days of summer!
Keep on reading and I?ll tell you just how I did it!
Here?s what you?ll need:
6 cups of a clear MP soap base (I had a ton of suspension base on hand so that?s what I used for mine)
1 cup Grapeseed Oil
1 tablespoon Vitamin E Oil
For the first layer, melt 5 cups of the MP soap base and the grapeseed oil. You can do this two ways: either by using a double boiler on your stovetop, or by placing the soap base in a microwave-safe bowl and using short pulses in the microwave until completely liquefied.
Once melted, remove from the heat and add the lemon essential oil (making it as mild or strong as you?d like).
Carefully pour the mixture into a rectangular mold and move on to the second step.
Following the same instructions as listed above, melt the remaining cup of soap base along with the vitamin E oil. Stir in the green mica powder and lime essential oil (again, you can use both of these ingredients to suit your preference).
Carefully pour the second mixture over the first. The two layers will partially blend on their own, but for added effect, swirl the layers with a wooden skewer.
Allow the soap to cool and harden completely before unmolding and slicing into 1-1 ? inch bars.
I hope you enjoy!
