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.

•  12 ounces lye
•  32 ounces water
•  24 ounces coconut oil
•  38 ounces vegetable shortening
•  24 ounces olive oil
•  4 ounces lemon verbena oil
•  1/2 ounce lemongrass oil
•  1 ounce turmeric or yellow color chips ­(optional)
