Several folks have written saying how much they love the Orange Creamsicle soap recipe I posted earlier this week. It’s the first time I’ve used orange essential oil in a while, and I’m glad I did. I used to use it a lot…but have gotten out of the habit. It’s uplifting, versatile, affordable and delightful – and really marvelous in practically any blend for soaps and candles. It also has many other household uses.

Orange Creamsicle-Inspired Soap – Please Don’t Eat it!

I remember the sweet, tangy and creamy mix of orange and vanilla Popsicles when I was a kid. As I was thinking about summertime soap projects, I imagined a melt and pour soap inspired by those treats. It has a white “ice cream” core – surrounded by a sweet orange layer that I created an essential oil blend of orange, benzoin and litsea for. It smells just like a creamsicle…and makes me smile every morning in the shower!
