I've become quite fond of soap making since the start of this year. I have experimented with all different scents, add-ins and shapes. This natural lemon soap is by far one of my favorites because there are no artificial colors or ingredients.
This is a great soap for the kitchen because it has a fresh lemon scent that isn't overpowering. The scent literally comes from the lemon zest, and that's it! If you are looking for a natural soap recipe, this is definitely a great one to try. You might also like my Homemade Apricot Seed Soap with Peach Mango Fragrance.

Can you put lemon juice in soap?
You don't really want to add too many things to a melt and pour soap base, especially liquid. Lemon juice is not a good idea, and that's why I have used lemon zest instead, to give it that wonderful lemon scent.
