To me the smell of lemon = the smell of clean, probably because of my childhood fascination with lemon scented Pledge. I absolutely MUST learn to make soap to make this Homemade Lemon Soap from a Pumpkin and a Princess.
I have one of these nubby soap molds, and let me tell you, they are fantastic to massage with in the shower! I never thought to make kitchen soap with it. The addition of poppyseed and lemon will really clean off all those gross food smells. Adding this to my soap making list!
What’s with glycerin? It’s a soap-making byproduct with antibacterial properties, but it’s often made with animal fat derivatives, which isn’t really our thing. So, we figured out how to make our own veggie version with coconut oil, opening up a whole world of kitchen pantry beauty concoctions (and gave us a bonus bar of soap).
Blue boxes are fun to receive, but they are even more fun to make! Adding extra glycerin to the melt and pour allows you to create flexible ribbons. Learn how in this Melt and Pour Soap Ribbons Tutorial!
Melt & Pour soap is one of the most fun things you will ever use! It’s incredibly easy to use and you can add whatever you want to it. FYB has three amazing combos that sound like they would smell amazing. I think I might have to try the orange, sage and bergamont.
I’m not a big coffee drinker and I’m not huge on black tea, but I love chai tea, especially chai lattes. The smell is amazing! So I was so excited to see this soap recipe that uses chai tea as a exfoliating base. Even better, this one also uses melt and pour soap which is incredibly simple to use, meaning you could make a few of these to give away as gifts too (if you don’t end up hoarding them all for yourself!)
Look around your apartment. You probably have some soap in there, but you probably don’t have bars of soap with intricate skulls carved into them. But all that’s about to change. Thanks to the Art of Dying soaps, you’ll soon be able to think about mortality while you take a shower!
