Lemon Poppy Seed Soap

Introduction

Okay, I will admit it. I LOVE spring. I spend all of my time making spring themed products and I bake up a storm. I was browsing through one of my favorite baking books when I ran across an interesting recipe. Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies. Well, that just caused the gears in my brain to whir. I decided to make Lemon Poppy Seed Cookie soaps. Just looking at these soaps made me hungry!

This was made on the blog on March 14th, 2011.

Ingredients

    20 oz Coconut Oil
    25 oz Palm Oil
    25 oz Hydrogenated Soybean Oil
    5 oz Shea Butter, Unrefined
    5 oz Sweet Almond Butter
    30 oz Water
    11.21 oz Sodium Hydroxide (Lye)
    1.6 oz Lemon Essential Oil, Argentina
    2 oz Poppy Seeds
    Q.S. Yellow Lip Balm Color, Oil Soluble

Equipment

    Soap Bucket
    Soap Spoon
    Scale
    Immersion Blender
    Mold

Instructions

Heat oils gently until liquid. Prepare lye solution by mixing the lye and water together carefully. Do this in a well vented area. Prepare the mold by coating the inside with Vaseline or Mineral Oil. Pour the lye solution into the soap bucket with the warm oils. Mix using an immersion blender until trace is reached. Add the Lemon Essential Oil, Poppy Seeds and Yellow Lip Balm Color. Mix well. Carefully pour the soap into mold. Allow to sit for 24 hours. Remove soap from mold and cut. Allow the soap to cure. Longer curing time will result in a harder bar.

Comments

When adding the poppy seeds and essential oil, I added a drop of the Yellow Lip Balm Color. This was because I didn t want a white or even possibly gray soap. I didn t want the soap to be lemon yellow either.

Yield

Makes 5 pounds of soap.
