    Yield

    Approximately 60 ounces of finished soap.

Earthy, exotic and lingering


Balsam Peru Essential Oil
Balsam Peru is a woodsy-vanilla like scent. Try it in lip balm either on its own or as a blend.

Orange, Juiced


Orange Essential Oil, Valencia
Valencia oranges are the most often used varitey for juicing. They are thin skinned (peel) and offer the taste most people associate with oranges. Fabulous scent!
