Supplies to make this homemade soap
Depending on the size of the mold, this makes 6 bars.
- ¾ pound melt & pour soap base
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest
- Large Pyrex measuring cup
- Rectangular silicone mold
- Wooden stir stick
Directions to make this lemon soap recipe:
- Start by zesting a lemon. You’re going to need enough for 1 tablespoon of lemon zest.
- Next, take and sprinkle a little lemon zest in the bottom of each soap cavity in the mold. Enough to lightly cover the bottoms.
- Once done, take and cut the soap into about 1-inch chunks. When they are that size, it’s time to melt the soap in the microwave for 30 seconds. After the first 30 seconds, you need to stir. If it is not completely melted, place it back in the microwave and melt for another 10-seconds, then stir. Keep doing this over and over again until melted.
- Add in some more lemon zest and stir and mix well.
- Once it is mixed, take and pour into the silicone mold.
- Allow to rest and sit for about 2-3 hours.
- Once the time has passed and it’s hardened, remove from soap mold.
