[ DIY: Lemongrass, Green Tea, and Ginger Soap - Melt and Pour Method ] ~ from Monterey Bay Herb Co
diy lemongrass, green tea, and ginger soap — melt and pour method

Lemongrass lends a light, citrusy aroma to this soap, which pairs nicely with the warmth of ginger. As an added bonus, lemongrass scent on the skin seems to act as a natural insect repellent.

3 cups glycerin soap base
¼ cup green tea and ginger infusion
1 teaspoons lemongrass essential oil

Layer the first four ingredients in a mason jar with lid. Cover with the rum and replace the lid on the jar. Set aside for 2 to 4 weeks, or until the desired scent has developed. Strain, reserving the liquid in a clean bottle.
