Makoccino shows us how to go about making our very own lemon soap with just a few things which include clear glycerine soap, yellow soap colourant , essential oil or lemon scent, a round mould, and rubbing alcohol.
Once you have all the ingredients, you can start making the lemon soap.
The first step is to melt the clear glycerine soap and then add a tiny drop of yellow soap colourant and mix well. The next thing she does in order for the diy soap to smell like a lemon is by adding the lemon scent or essential oil. Once that is completed, the mixture is poured into a small round mould and rubbing alcohol is then sprayed on top so that the bubbles are removed. Remove the soap from the mould once it has completely hardened and then cut it into 10-12 sections.
Score the outer surface of the soap pieces by using a toothpick as this will allow the second layer of soap to stick better. For the final steps, she arranges the pieces back into a mould, sprays them with rubbing alcohol and then pours the white glycerine to the sides. Once that has dried, score the side of the lemon with a toothpick, spray with rubbing alcohol, and place the white side of soap facing up in the mould and then pour a layer of yellow glycerine.
This is one of the pretty simple homemade soap recipes out there and the end result does turn out very well. Well enough to actually make a few of these bars and wrap them up as a gift to send to family and friends or even sell them at craft markets. I'm sure they smell and feel great too!
