How to make Homemade Vanilla Orange Citrus Soap

I absolutely love the smell of Vanilla and oranges so what better way to bring those scents to my bathroom than by making a Homemade Vanilla Orange Citrus Soap.

Homemade Vanilla Orange Citrus Soap


  • 8 Small Cubes of Stephenson Personal Care Melt & Pour Soap Base (Purchase here)
  • Vanilla Essential Oil (Purchase here)
  • Orange Zest
  • Poppy Seeds
  • Silicone Mold Cavity (Purchase here)


Cut up 4 large cubes of Melt & Pour soap base and cut that down into smaller cubes to make the melting process faster and smoother. Place your cut cubes into a microwave safe glass bowl and place in the microwave for 1 minute.

Remove from the microwave, give it a quick stir and place back in the microwave for an additional 30 seconds and remove. You’ll now notice your melt & pour soap base is completely melted and smooth and it’s time to start adding in your goodies. I added in 10 drops of Vanilla essential oil, a dash of Poppy Seeds and a nice helping of Orange Zest. Give the mixture a quick stir and pour into your soap mold very quickly.

Once the mixture is poured don’t touch it and let it sit for a minimum of 2 hours. Once your soap has hardened remove from the silicone molds and enjoy.
