Lemongrass soap is also one of the easiest and least expensive soaps to make, even less expensive than lavender. Again, this is a one-scent and one-color bar. This bar was probably in the top 15 of the best-selling bars. The scent is so fresh and clean that you can’t resist using it to ‘bump’ up other scents, especially the citrus ones.

Here is a perfectly tinted lemongrass soap

make lemongrass soap:

  • Basic #2 Recipe: (other recipes here)

    51.2 oz Olive oil or Olive/Canola oil blend
    6.2 oz Coconut Oil
    6.2 oz Palm Oil
    23.4 water
    8.6 oz lye crystals
    for this scented bar, add:

  • 3 T lemongrass essential oil
    1/2 tsp yellow liquid colorant
  • other: optional
  • 1/4 cup of calendula petals, or dried bits of lemongrass leaves
  • Use dried leaves and petals as fresh plant material may mold in the finished soap bar.

NOTE: you can cut this recipe in halves or quarters to make smaller batches. You don’t have to use any Canola Oil, but if you use all Canola Oil your soap will develop spots. A Canola and Olive oil blend will help cut the costs.

Below is an example of a lemongrass bar with bits of lemongrass leaves in it, although the dried lemongrass bits got a little burned, it is still a very pretty bar:

Below is my lemongrass bar.  I don’t add a color, this is how it comes out colored by the essential oil I use.

This lemongrass soap is the least expensive with scent. That’s not counting all the time, effort, utilities, labeling, etc. If you are making this at home then that’s more profits in your pocket.  The least expensive bar was unscented,  but I bought it in bulk, which helps to lower the costs.

the lemongrass plant is sooo lemony that it is hard to believe that there is no lemon sitting around somewhere

About the essential oil:
