Lemon Poppyseed Soap
|A few weeks ago, my sister made Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins and those yummy muffins inspired this soap. I’ll even show you how I made the soap look like it had been baked!
Collect needed items:
Weigh your fragrance oil, color and 1 ounce of water into a small beaker and set aside. Measure seeds and set aside as well.
Add sodium hydroxide to the water. Mix well. Allow to cool to near 120 °F. Exact temperature is not critical. Allow the lye solution to cool as the oils are being melted. Measure oils on your scale. Warm on the stove or in the microwave. Bring temperature to near 120 °F. Once again, exact temperature is not critical.
Combine oils and lye solution. Stir until thin trace. Upon light trace add the fragrance oil, color and seeds. Stir well. Pour soap into molds. I used the Guerrilla Mold from Dirk’s post. Lightly sprinkle the cocoa powder over the soap. Using a gloved hand, gently mix the cocoa powder into the soap, making a thin layer of brown colored soap to represent the baked top. Allow to sit until soap is firm.
Cut into bars. Stack to allow good air circulation. Allow to cure for several days before using. Longer curing will result in a harder bar.
