Making Natural Citrus Soaps

$13.00
Easy

It all started with a box of chocolates (you never know what you're going to get!)
I had these two plastic chocolate box inserts (that the chocolates sit in) and I didn't want to throw it out. I left it laying around and when my niece came and said I should make "soaps" in it, I knew it was the right thing.
I bought the glycerin soap making supplies at Michael's Craft Store. Since I don't like really fragrant soaps, I settled on using the rinds (zests?) of lemons, oranges, and grapefruits! I just grated up the rinds and put them in the melted glycerin and poured them in the candy inserts. At first I wondered if the plastic inserts were going to melt but they were just fine!
Hope you enjoy this! It was so fun. So SAVE THOSE CANDY BOX INSERTS!! Linda
