Homemade Citrus Soap

You can choose what type of citrus you want to use - lemon, lime, orange! All work equally wonderful.


Goat’s milk soap base

Lemon, lime or orange essential oil

 Zest of 3-4 lemons, limes or oranges

1) Cut soap into cubes and microwave in 30 second intervals (Use a large Pyrex measuring cup to melt the soap in). This recipe makes 3 bars of soap and uses approx 13 cubes of goat’s milk soap base.

2) Melt soap for about a minute. Additional 15 second intervals until completely melted.

3) Once soap cubes turn liquid add a few drops of the desired  essential oil and the zest; stir well.

4) Pour into soap molds and allow to harden for at least one hour. Press mold to release soap. If you don’t have regular soap molds (I don’t!) you can be creative – paper milk cartons, lined toilet paper tubes with one end blocked off, etc.
