We are on a soap making kick and wanted to share our Lemon Poppy Seed Soap recipe!  What a fun soap to use just in time for summer! The soaps are bright yellow and just perfect!

With summer here, I am always looking for easy crafts for my son and myself to try. Many times, I’m looking for something to do and making soap, body scrubs, and bath bombs help pass the time. Plus, we have fun bath and body products to try!

clear melt and pour soap *suspension, cut into cubes

poppy seeds

dead sea salt

dried lemon slices

Helpful Tip: Suspension soap helps your poppy seeds to “float” throughout the soaps. With regular melt and pour soap, they have a better chance of sinking to the bottom.

Keyword: lemon poppy seed soap, soap, soap making

Ingredients

  • Supplies
  • 1/2 pound clear melt and pour soap *suspension cut into cubes
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 tablespoon dead sea salt
  • 6 dried lemon slices
  • 10-20 drops lemon essential oil
  • 1-2 drops vegan soap colorant
  • Round silicone mold
  • Spray bottle of rubbing alcohol
  • 1 plastic measuring cup

Instructions

  • Instructions:
  • Step 1: Add clear soap to your measuring cup. Melt the soap in the microwave at 30 second bursts until soap is completely melted.
  • Steps 2-4: Add soap colorant and lemon essential oil to measuring cup. Whisk together. If you want a darker color, add another drop or two.
  • Steps 5-7: Add poppy seeds and salt to the measuring cup. Whisk ingredients together.

  • Steps 8-10: Spray your soap mold with the rubbing alcohol. This prevents bubbles from forming. Pour the soap mixture into the mold until it just covers the bottom of each cavity. Spray top of mixture with rubbing alcohol to prevent bubbles.
  • Steps 11-13: Allow to harden for about 15 minutes. Place one orange slice in each cavity and add the soap mixture to the top of each cavity. I would stir the mixture in the measuring cup each time you pour, or they will clump at the bottom. Spray top of mixture with rubbing alcohol to prevent bubbles.
  • Step 14: Dry for at least 3-4 hours or until hardened completely. To release, pop gently from mold. Store in an airtight container or Ziploc bag until ready to use.
