Whether you’re taking a shower or a bath it’s nice to have a soap that takes care of your skin and leaves a subtle fragrance behind as well. This Homemade Vanilla Orange Citrus Soap smells amazing, makes your skin so smooth and it looks great on display. Sometimes when I make these soaps I feel they’re so pretty I don’t even want to use them so I love to display them in my kitchen, guest bathroom and main bathroom for guest to enjoy. The process of making soaps is so easy and I love how versatile you can get with the additives you add in. I really hope you enjoy this tutorial and you’ll give Homemade Soap making a go.
Homemade Vanilla Orange Citrus Soap
Cut up 4 large cubes of Melt & Pour soap base and cut that down into smaller cubes to make the melting process faster and smoother. Place your cut cubes into a microwave safe glass bowl and place in the microwave for 1 minute.
Remove from the microwave, give it a quick stir and place back in the microwave for an additional 30 seconds and remove. You’ll now notice your melt & pour soap base is completely melted and smooth and it’s time to start adding in your goodies. I added in 10 drops of Vanilla essential oil, a dash of Poppy Seeds and a nice helping of Orange Zest. Give the mixture a quick stir and pour into your soap mold very quickly.
Once the mixture is poured don’t touch it and let it sit for a minimum of 2 hours. Once your soap has hardened remove from the silicone molds and enjoy.
