Mini Lemon Poppy Seed Soap Project
These mini soaps are made with lemon peel powder and poppy seeds for texture, along with Sweet Meyer Lemon Fragrance Oil for a fresh and tart scent.
9 Cavity Silicone Guest Oval Mold
9 oz. White Melt & Pour Soap Base
0.2 oz. Sweet Meyer Lemon Fragrance Oil
1/2 tsp. Lemon Peel Powder
1/2 tsp. Poppy Seeds
99% Isopropyl Alcohol in a Spray Bottle
Chop 9 oz. of White Melt and Pour Soap Base into small, uniform cubes. Place them into a heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 10-15 second bursts.
Add 0.2 oz. of Sweet Meyer Lemon Fragrance Oil. Use a spoon to fully incorporate the fragrance.
Add 1/2 tsp. of poppy seeds and 1/2 tsp. of lemon peel powder. Stir until all the chunks of lemon peel powder are gone.
Check the temperature of the soap. It’s best to pour around 125-130° F so the poppy seeds don’t fall to the bottom. Once the soap is at the right temperature, pour it into each mold cavity. After each pour, spray with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of bubbles.
Continue until each cavity is full. Allow the soap to fully cool and harden for 2-4 hours, then remove from the mold. Wrap the soap in plastic wrap to prevent glycerin dew. Enjoy.
