For a subtle, fresh, summery scent to close the season out, we have this DIY Green Tea and Lemongrass Soap recipe.
With a light, clean fragrance and some skin-loving soap bases, these pretty little bars are perfect for the shower!
Grab your supplies and I’ll tell you how to make them! The kit can be purchased here!
1 lb. Oatmeal MP Soap Base, cubed
¼ lb. Shea MP Soap Base, cubed
This fragrance oil is perfect for those of you who aren’t big fans of the sweet or fruity scents. It’s crisp and clean. Very fresh smelling- which makes for a good shower product.
Start by melting the oatmeal soap base into a smooth liquid using a microwave-safe bowl. I use a really big measuring cup because the handle and spout make pouring super easy and less messy. Just a couple of minutes stirring halfway through is all you need.
Stir in 1 ½ teaspoons to 1 tablespoon of the fragrance oil. You can adjust this amount if you want your soaps to have a weaker or stronger scent.
Now for color! Using a soap color block, mica powder, or liquid soap color (whatever you like best), blend color into your soap making the mixture as bright as you’d like! I obviously made mine pretty bright.
Pour the mixture evenly into the soap molds. This recipe won’t fill the entire tray, so feel free to double it if you want a bunch of these bars!
Next, melt the Shea soap base. I just left this base as is since we’re only using a small amount. Feel fell to add some fragrance oil if you’d like to! Using a spoon, drizzle the soap over the green bars.
Allow the bars to cool and harden completely (at least a few hours) before unmolding. With the silicone molds you can easily pop the bars right out.
I hope you enjoy these!
