Scented Essentials: Lemon Verbena Soap

Content Tools

Being an avid fan of lemon verbena, I chose this herb scent for one of my first soap projects and have been making lemon verbena soap ever since. Adding a small amount of lemongrass oil to the lemon verbena oil helps fix the scent.

•  24 ounces coconut oil
•  38 ounces vegetable shortening
•  24 ounces olive oil
