• Add 3-4 drops of lemon essential oil and 8+ yellow soap dye to the soap base. The essential oil has a strong scent, but add more drops if you like a really lemony scent. Keep adding yellow a few drops at a time until the soap resembles a lemon. The more soap colorant you add, the brighter the yellow.

• Slowly and carefully pour the melted soap into the molds. If you pour too quickly, the poppy seeds will rise up into the soap and will not remain on the bottom. Pay special attention to pouring neatly to keep the poppy seeds on the bottom of the mold where they belong.

• Spritz with rubbing alcohol to dissolve the bubbles if needed.
• Let the soap harden for at least two hours, but preferably overnight.

Tip: I like to allow my soap to harden so I keep them unwrapped on a shelf in the linen closet. The closet smells pretty good too! The scent will dissipate this way, so add more Lemon Essential Oil if you plan to store your soap open on wire racks (shelving).

Note: None of this is meant as medical advice. I am not a doctor and do not play one on the internet. Please consult a physician if you have any questions about using essential oils or making your own soap so your doctor can better explain to you the benefits, possible side effects, and any warnings about essential oils and making your own soap.

Autumn Morning Coffee Sugar Scrub Directions:

• Pour fresh coffee grounds into a bowl. (You may wonder if you can use your coffee grounds after you have made coffee with them and that is a good question. I tried this before, getting the recycled ones from Starbucks since they will give you a big bag for free. I dried them in the oven, thinking that would do the trick, but after making up scrubs with them, they gold moldy in the jars anyway, and within no time! NOT worth it. Use freshly ground coffee.)

• Add 10 drops Orange Essential Oil and 3 drops Cinnamon Essential Oil. These are both very thin oils, so they run out of the bottle fast and the last thing you want is twice the cinnamon oil – take it slow when pouring. It is a wise ideas to put the cinnamon drops in 3 separate spots in the mix just to be certain they do not end up in one place in the scrub.
• Using a whisk or a fork and blend it all in the mix good. Make sure to get down in the bottom edges of the bowl, the sugar likes to stick there.

To use the Autumn Morning Coffee Sugar Scrub:

• Take just two fingertips full of the scrub and rub into rough areas like elbows or knees, or on hands or feet where skin can be rougher, or use in the shower all over the body. Rub it in until it breaks down well and dissipates so that it is really working to exfoliate.
• Rinse well!
