If you want your hands to be soft, hydrated and smell like lemon poppy seed cake, you need to make this easy melt&pour soap! It has coconut oil, goat’s milk, lemon zest, vanilla and poppy seeds. Doesn’t it sound delicious?
Every time I start a new hobby, I always start with an easy template or kit, just to make sure I can do it and I like it. Then I go from easy to crazy difficult, just to see how far I can go. Then I settle with the best option in between.
Making soaps was no different. I first started with a 2 ingredient soap recipe. Easy, okay, I can do it. Then I started mixing up all crazy ingredients together, like lemongrass and Szechuan pepper. Needless to say, it didn’t work. It was disgusting. So now I understood the limit.
I made my Coffee Oatmeal Scrub soap and it was great. Okay, now I can continue in this direction. But I wanted to stretch it a little bit more. What if I add coconut oil? Will it mix with the soap base or will it separate? What if I add cake ingredients? Will it be disgusting or nice?
I like Scrub soaps so I decided to try Lemon Poppy Seed cake soap. Yes, it came out perfect. It was so good that I made it 3 more times and it completely sold out at my Christmas handmade market last year.
With the easy melt&pour goat milk soap base, (see below instructions for Amazon link) it takes just a few minutes to make incredible soap with all natural ingredients. You can keep them for yourself or give them as gifts to your friends and family!
