Lemon Sugar Soap

Lemon Sugar Soap


  • 1 cup shea butter melt and pour soap (non-suspension formula)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon peel
  • 1 tablespoon Dixie Crystals Turbinado
  • 2 drops lemon essential oil
  • Soap molds (silicon molds release best)


    1. Cut melt-and-pour soap into cubes and place in glass measuring cup.
    2. Place in microwave on high for 40 seconds. Stir and repeat for 10 second intervals until completely melted.
    3. Let cool slightly for about one minute.
    4. Stir in lemon peel and turbinado. (The larger sugar crystals will not dissolve.)
    5. Carefully pour soap mixture into molds, filling to top of mold.
    6. If bubbles appear on top of soap, gently spritz with alcohol to pop them.
    7. Let soap sit in a stable location for at least 4 hours. To extract soap from molds, gently push on the bottom of the mold until soap is released.


    1. Shea butter soaps need to breathe, so leave unwrapped or wrap with breathable paper. (They can also be stored in brown paper bags.) Prior to use, store in a cool, dry location away from heat and humidity.   
    2. If you want a stronger lemon smell, additional drops of lemon essential oil can be added.
