Orange Peppermint Goat's Milk Soap DIY

I've been making my own soap for a few years now, usually just basic recipes, but I've even used the plain base I buy at hobby stores. But today I'm bringing you a nice, yummy smelling soap!

I buy the soap bases at Hobby Lobby and use a coupon, they are $9.99 without a coupon and it's 2lbs of soap base which is enough to make 8 bars of soap, that's $1.25 without a coupon, use a 40% off coupon and it's just $.75 per bar of soap (plus any add-ins)

Making this Orange Peppermint Goat's Milk Soap, is incredibly easy!

You need just 3-4 ingredients!

I used a Goat's Milk Base from Hobby Lobby, Orange Essential Oil, Peppermint Essential Oil and I also used Orange Zest to add some color to the soap, but this isn't necessary!
Since I recently made soap, I cut this recipe in half to only make 2 bars, but directions below are for 4 bars of soap.

Orange Zest (optional)

-Cut your soap into small chunks (it already has cut lines on it to make it easy), and melt in a microwave safe bowl, melt in 20 second increments, stirring in between, until fully melted. 
-Quickly add in your oils and orange zest and stir to combine. 
-Pour into a mold, I prefer silicone, but the plastic ones at the hobby stores work fine as well.
-Wait to cool (about 40 minutes at room temp) and then pop out of mold.

This can easily be made with any other soap base as well, I just prefer the goat's milk or shea butter is awesome too!
