Hi Everyone, are you looking for a fragrant, luxurious and EASY "How to" soap recipe? Try this Orange Peel Soap!
I used to be intimidated by soap recipes - it was something that I always wanted to try making but never did because it just seems "hard." Well, guess what? It's really not, especially if you try a "heat and pour" soap making method like this "Orange Peel Soap" recipe tutorial.
We are using soap bases, Shea butter and goats milk.
As quoted from the packaging from the bMAKER dried orange peel package:
"Citrus sinensis, also known as sweet orange, is of the most popular and widely cultivated fruits of the world. The edible peel lends bright, tangy flavor to teas, mulled wines, baked goods and chutneys. Dried orange peel is also used to make scrubs, bath bags and potpourri blends.."

1. Gather the ingredients for this tutorial. Put the silicone mold(s) on a rimmed baking sheet for ease of movement and set aside.
2. In a medium saucepan (or double boiler), add about 1 inch of water, put a metal bowl to sit on top. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
3. While you bring the water to a boil, cut the soap base in squares.
4. Add the squares to the bowl of the double boiler. Melt the soap base squares completely, occasionally stirring with a wooden spoon.
5. When the soap base is completely melted, add the dried orange peel and optional rose or other essential oil. Stir to combine.
6. Carefully pour the liquid soap mixture into the soap molds.
7. Allow the soap to harden at room temperature or place in the refrigerator to harden at a faster rate. When the soap is completely hardened then remove the soap from the silicone molds. Enjoy!
