Grapefruit-Spearmint Moisturizing Soap Bars

Nurture your skin with the cleansing and invigorating properties of Grapefruit and Spearmint oils.  Shea butter and Pink clay nourish and hydrate your skin.   Young and aging skin will feel silky soft and revitalized.   

1 lb shea butter soap  melt/pour base

1/4 teaspoon coconut or vitamin E oil

1 1/2 tablespoons  pink clay powder

10 drops doTERRA Grapefruit oil

4 drops doTERRA Spearmint oil

2 teaspoons poppy seeds (optional - great for gentle exfoliating)

Chop soap base into cubes.  Melt in 30 second intervals in microwave glass measuring cup, stirring between intervals.   (can melt in double boiler as alternative).  Once it's melted gently mix in essential oils and poppy seeds with silicone spatula.  Finally, add pink clay powder.  

Pour into silicone molds.  Can sprinkle or garnish with dried flower petals, dried citrus peel zest.  Allow to set and harden up to 6 hours.  Pop out of molds.  Wrap and store in airtight containers.    Use soap to gently cleanse skin.  Rinse and pat dry.  Follow with Verage Toner,  Hydrating Serum and Moisturizer.  Avoid sun exposure for 12 hours after using citrus oils on skin.  The amount of citrus oil in this recipe is minimal, but due to photosensitivity of citrus oils, it's best to be on the safe side and not use prior to being exposed to sun.
