Chapter 3. Lemon Soap



1 1/2 cups shea butter or goat milk soap base

Dried lemon zest of 3-4 lemons

4-6 drops lemon essential oilhttp://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=apuapr00-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B00028M3N2

Step 1: Melt the soap base

Slice the soap into cubes and melt it in the microwave at 30-second intervals. It will take you about a minute or so to melt it.

Step 2: Add the lemon

When the soap has melted, stir in the lemon zest and just a few drops of the lemon essential oil.

Step 3: Pour into molds

Pour this mixture into your soap molds and leave for about an hour until the soap hardens.

Step 4: Unmold the soaps

When the soaps have completely set, you can easily pop them up. Since you used the soap base instead of lye, you can use the soaps immediately.
