  1. Melt the soap base in a container in the microwave in 30 second intervals.
  2. When it’s completely melted, add the zest, essential oil and coconut and after mixing together well pour into a container.
  3. After pouring the soap into the mold, sprinkle more zest or coconut on top.
  4. Let the soap harden for about an hour and then pop it out of the container.

That’s all you have to do! You now have your home-made coconut citrus soap. It has a wonderful scent of citrus and skin-softening effect of coconut oil. This is perfect for everyday use. Try it yourself and see how the coconut citrus soap enhances your skin.
