Tangerine honey soap recipe

TANGERINE HONEY SOAP

This recipe smells really wonderful in the shower but you can’t let it sit too long before cutting it into bars. Something about all the citrus in the recipe makes the loaf become really hard after twenty-four hours. If you find that you would like to anchor the tangerine scent a little more, try replacing half of the sweet orange essential oil with patchouli.

24 ounces soybean shortening
10 ounces olive oil
10 ounces coconut oil
13.5 ounces water
6.2 ounces lye
2 ounces tangerine orange essential oil
1 ounce sweet orange essential oil
¼ teaspoon yellow oxide
¼ teaspoon red oxide
1 teaspoon powdered or regular honey

follow soap making instructions. See tab on top of every page that says HOW TO MAKE SOAP.

Grapefruit Orange soap recipe

GRAPEFRUIT ORANGE SOAP

This bar is great for anyone that loves citrus scents. This particular soap takes a little longer to trace and the addition of calendula petals make pretty yellow flecks throughout the soap. Soaps with all citrus oils have a tendency to “lock in” the fragrance when cured. Meaning, the bar doesn’t seem to smell very strong but does when you get the soap wet in the bath or shower. If you’d like to anchor the scent a little more, replace ½ ounce of the sweet orange essential oil with patchouli essential oil.

10 ounces coconut oil
10 ounces olive oil
24 ounces soybean shortening
13.5 ounces water
6.2 ounces lye
1 ounce pink grapefruit essential oil
1 ounce sweet orange essential oil
1 ounce 5-fold orange essential oil
3 tablespoons calendula petals
1/16 teaspoon yellow oxide colorant
