A creamy energizing Citrus Mint Soap. Easy recipe to make your own lovely homemade soaps.
Citrus Fresh Soap Recipe

This Citrus Mint Soap recipe features Young Living’s Citrus Fresh essential oil blend (directions are included to make this without this particular blend, for those using other brands).  This energizing blend of citrus fruits and spearmint essential oils is geared to be used as a dietary supplement, but why miss out on the divine smell & shower time pick-me up.

The recipe has two distinct soap layers, one glycerine, and one goats milk. If you have a preference to just use one, simply adjust the recipe accordingly.  Texture and natural color is derived from finely ground dry clementine peels.

How to Make Citrus Mint Soap

This citrus and spearmint soap is easy to make, either with the Citrus fresh blend or a simplified version made of a combination of orange & spearmint essential oils.

Citrus Fresh Soap Ingredients

 

Making the Citrus Mint Soap Recipe

Supplies

1/4 lb clear glycerine melt & pour soap base

3/4 lb goats milk melt & pour soap base

3 tsp clementine dust (finely ground dry clementine peel, directions for making it here)

60 drops of  Citrus Fresh essential oil blend (or 45 drops orange & 15 drops spearmint)

4 bar soap mold*

Instructions

Cut the pour and melt soaps into small pieces (approximately 1/2″ square, but don’t be fussy about it).  Keep the two types of soap base separate.

Place the glycerine soap in a microwave safe mixing bowl and zap for 30 seconds.  Stir and repeat in 15-20 second intervals until soap is melted.

Add 1 tsp of clementine dust and 15 drops of Citrus Fresh essential oil (10 orange & 5 spearmint) to the glycerine soap and mix well.  Pour carefully into the molds, dividing evenly.

Melt the goat’s milk soap base, in the same method as above, then add 1 tsp of clementine dust and 45 drops of Citrus Fresh essential oil (35 orange & 10 spearmint).  Mix well, then top off the molds with it.

Set the soap bars aside to cool.  Once cool pop out of the molds by pressing against the back until the soap releases.

Soap is ready to use or gift.

 

*I used a tray mold of 4 (4oz) bars.

Note of caution: Do not exceed the essential oil quantity in this recipe, as too much of some citrus fruit essential oils could be reactive in sunlight. If you are using the orange and spearmint version this is not a concern. Orange oil is not phototoxic.
