Homemade Soap is one of those luxuries to incorporate in your bath routine.  I absolutely love that while making homemade soap I get to choose what additives, scents and essential oils I add for the beauty of my skin.  This Zesty Vanilla Rose Soap is perfect for shower time, bath time and great for washing your hands.  Your guests will be so impressed by the design, smell and feel of this homemade soap.  It’s almost to pretty to use but you’re going to love it.

What you need:

Directions:

Grab three large cubes of your melt and pour soap base and cut them into smaller squares. This will make the melting process easier.

Place your cubes into a microwave safe bowl and place in the microwave for two minutes.

While you’re waiting for the soap to melt, take your hand grater and grate up some lime zest and set aside.

Remove the soap, stir, and place back in the microwave again for another minute.

Remove from the microwave, and be careful because the soap will be very hot and these next few steps need to be done quickly.

Pour in your vanilla extract and add your lime zest into the mixture and give it a good stir.
