Indulge your traveling house guests with these aromatic handmade soaps that will help relax their mind and body. These Asian-inspired guest soaps are simple to make using clear melt and pour soap, coloring, essential oils and a few kitchen utensils.

The three essential oils used in this blend are obtained from plants that are used extensively in Asian cuisine and easily grown in warm climates. When combined these essential oils make a therapeutic blend with a refreshing scent.

Ginger (zingiber officinals) is a tender creeping rhizome. The essential oil is extracted from the root by steam distillation. This oil contains components that will help an upset stomach due to traveling and lower back pain from sitting.

Lemongrass (cymbopogon citratus) is a grass with clumped bulbous stems that have long leaf blades. The essential oil is extracted from the leaves by steam distillation. This oil has properties to disinfect hands, stimulate the digestive system and re-energize the tired soul.

Mandarin Orange (citrus reticulate) is an evergreen fruit tree with thorny, slender twigs, broad or slender leaves and peels that are bright-orange or red-orange when ripe. This essential oil is extracted from the peel. The oil has the ability to help with jet lag and insomnia, and can induce happiness.
