DIY Lemon Orange Poppy Seed Shea Butter Soap Bar – Recipe




  • Shea butter melt & pour soap base (I buy it here)
  • Lemon essential oil
  • Orange essential oil
  • Poppy seeds
  • Vitamin E oil
  • Rubbing alcohol in spray bottle
  • Soap mold



  • Chop up the soap bases into cubes and place them into a glass measuring cup and let it all melt in the microwave . The time it takes for the soap to melt really depends on the the amount you are melting and the company. Different companies soaps have different melting points.
  • Once the soap is completely melted add in your poppy seeds and any essential oils or carrier oils you want to add in.
  • Stir everything well and pour into your mold.
  • Lightly spray rubbing alcohol if you notice any air bubbles.
  • This recipe should make about 4-5 bars depending on how large your molds are
