Lemon essential oil doesn't hold up well in the soapmaking process, so I use May Chang (which smells just like lemon sherbert), Lemongrass and Petitgrain essential oils. The Petitgrain just takes the edge off the sherbety sweetness and gives the fragrance real depth. Lemon peel powder provides a swirl of colour. The combination of five carefully-selected base oils - coconut, sweet almond, apricot kernel, olive and shea butter - together with all the naturally-occurring glycerin, make this a wonderfully gentle and moisturising soap with an unbelievably luxurious creamy lather. Suitable for hands, face and body. Vegetarian and Vegan. All my soaps are handmade and hand-cut, so each bar is unique. The weight stated is the minimum weight - most bars will weigh a bit more. A batch code is stamped on each bar. Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. Allow to dry out between uses.Handmade soaps get better with age and if stored properly can last up to 3 years, although some fading of fragrance and colour is inevitable.
