How to Make Lemon Poppyseed Soap (Recipe)

Lemon Soap

Salt and sugar are used quite a bit in homemade products for exfoliation.  However, David of CandleAndSoap tries something more creative.  He uses poppy seeds for exfoliation in this soap recipe.   They are “scrubby” but not “scratchy.”  🙂

David uses a mixture of essential oils that are “bright and citrusy, and a little bit woodsy, floral and green.”  He uses:

  • cedarwood -soft, woody and “pencil-like” smell and has a faint undertone of sandalwood
  • bergamot – basically citrus, yet fruity and sweet, with a warm spicy floral quality
  • niaoui  – slightly sweet, fresh smell and its color varies from colorless to pale yellow and greenish

This is a layered soap and David walks you through the steps with pictures and clear directions.  This is one of those recipes that would be wonderful for at-home use.  But bars of Lemon Poppyseed soap would also make a fantastic present for someone special.
