Lemon is one of my favorite Spring time scents. It is so joyful and uplifting and leaves everything smelling clean and fresh. When thinking of what soap I wanted to create using lemon, I remembered I had some suspending melt and pour base and that sealed the deal for a Lemon Poppyseed soap to ring in Spring. The suspension base will make sure the poppyseeds are evenly distributed throughout the soap to provide a gentle exfoliation and for an additional element, I decided to add an oatmeal "crust".
This soap turned out super cute and is giving me all the Spring vibes so I hope that you give making it a try:)
For this soap you will need:
Melt your 3oz of oatmeal melt and pour in the microwave or a double boiler and then pour a thin layer in the bottom of your silicone mold to form a “crust”(yes I know lemon poppyseed muffins/bread doesn’t really have a crust but I thought the layers would be nice)
Let this setup until it is mostly firm.
Next melt down your 9oz of suspension or clear base with the yellow soap colorant and then stir in your poppyseeds and essential oils. Allow to cool slightly.
Now spritz the oatmeal layer with isopropyl alcohol so that your layers will adhere and then pour the rest of your soap into the mold.
Allow to cool completely before removing from the mold.
Fresh lemon scent, gentle exfoliation from the poppyseeds and some moisturizing action from the oatmeal base, what more could you ask for? I really enjoyed using the suspension base and how equally dispersed it made the poppyseeds. Hope you give making this soap a try, if you do leave a comment on how it turned out below:)
