Our team really likes soap recipes with the addition of citrus essential oils or natural additives in the form of a zest for flavor, and also for not needing to add dyes. In a white base, you get a very delicate yellow color, with light orange blotches, if you add zest, as in our case.

Lemon soap from the base

Soap is obtained with a slight scrubbing effect and a softening effect for the skin due to shea butter at the base. In spite of the fact that we used dried zest, mold may appear after a while, therefore it is not worth keeping it for a long time, it is better to use right away!
