I know...I know... not the most original soap... everyone seems to have a Coffee Kitchen Hand soap (I do and I really like it!), a Honey Oatmeal soap (I do and I am still experimenting with getting the perfect one) and a Lemon Poppyseed soap. I tried Orange poppyseed, but I didn't like it as much. I have been frustrated in my experiments with citrus soaps because I couldn't get the Essential Oils to stay. But this one... FINALLY! I seemed to have found a natural colour I am really pleased with, and the Essential Oil combination smells very lemony and seems pretty strong right now. The colourant is Carrot Tissue Oil that I bought from Gracefruit. I added just a few grams at trace and got this yellow I really like. The Essential Oil combo is Litsea Cubeba (May Chang) from Fresholi, Lemon & Lemongrass. I used my favourite no-palm recipe, adapted slightly. Now I just have to wait till it fully cures to see if the Essential Oils stick!
