Lemon Grass and Hemp Soap Bars
Hello again! Have you ever smelled lemongrass? I was blown away the first time I used this Essential Oil in one of my Soap Bar recipes. I only used 1 teaspoon and the scent lingered for hours in my kitchen. This recipe is one of the easiest I’ve ever done. You’re only using two main ingredients: the hemp soap base and lemongrass essential oil. I also used the Wavy Cutter to give the soap texture.
This bar looks simple yet elegant. It is definitely a favorite. Below is my recipe.
Materials I used:
Spray Bottle of Rubbing Alcohol
Step 1 Cut the Hemp Oil Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap Base into small cubes, place into a microwaveable safe glass measuring bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir and microwave again for another 30 seconds. TIP: Remember all microwaves differ, you might need to adjust the melting time. Add 1 teaspoon of Lemongrass Essential Oil. Stir until completely smooth. The glass container becomes very hot.
Step 2 Pour soap mixture into the Silicone Regular Loaf Mold. Spray top of soap with rubbing alcohol. This gets rid of any bubbles.
Step 3 Wait a least 3 hours before removing your creation from the mold. Tip: I always put mold into freezer 15 minutes before cutting. It makes slicing the bars a breeze. Once removed from mold place soap loaf into Mitre Box. Slice into your desired size.
Only 3 steps to perfection! This recipe is simple and easy. Remember you can add different essential oils, salts, even fresh lemongrass!
Until next time,
