lemon soap

I've been wanting to try making lemon soap since making the lavender soap. The kids picked some lemons off of my mother-in-law's tree, so I figured this was a good time to make some!
I made it using the same recipe, but instead of making a lavender "tea" I used lemon water for my liquid, and put in lemon peel and lemon essential oil. I should have used more lemon EO, or added some lemon grass EO as well as the scent was quite a bit lighter than I had wanted. I think I'll give it a try again next week, if I can find the time.
I've been enjoying soap making, and each time I try it I learn something new and/or it comes together a bit better. I'd love to try so many more scents, but I'll have to take my time in getting to those!
