Sugared Lime Foam Bars

This easy guest soap project is a combination of zesty lime essential oil with shaving melt-and-pour soap base, foaming bath whip, and white sugar. They lather like a dream and are super refreshing!

Gather Your Supplies:
1 pound shaving melt-and-pour soap base
1/2 cup foaming bath whip
4 ml lime essential oil
1 cup white sugar
2 drops lime LabColor
Rubber ice-cube tray mold of your choice

Begin by melting the entire one-pound shaving base in 1 minute intervals in the microwave. The shaving base adds to the finished bars' luxurious lather. Add two drops of lime LabColor, 4 ml lime essential oil, and cup of sugar. Stir thoroughly.

In a separate dish, combine equal parts foaming bath whip and melt-and-pour mixture (about 1/2 cup each). Whip with a spoon until texture is thick.

Pour remaining scented/colored soap base in tray mold and let harden (which doesn't take long thanks the the sugar). Top with foaming whip mixture.

Pop these in the freezer for 15 minutes, un-mold, and enjoy the lathery lime goodness and gentle sugar scrub!
