Luscious Body Soap Recipe


A great moisturizing soap for dry skin that will also gently exfoliate.


8 oz. shea or cocoa butter melt and pour soap base
2 Tablespoons shea butter
1 Tablespoon cocoa butter
2 Tablespoons finely ground oatmeal 1 Tablespoon rose petal powder
20 drops red colorant
40 drops rose geranium essential oil
20 drops ylang-ylang essential oil


Melt the soap base over a double boiler. Add the shea butter and cocoa butter and heat until melted. Add the oatmeal and rose petal powder. Add the red colorant and continue stirring, making sure it is fully incorporated. Lastly, add the essential oils and stir well. Pour into desired soap molds and let set. Note: After the soaps have started to set and are no longer in danger of spilling over the mold, I put the molds into the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes. The soaps will pop out of the molds very easily!
