LEMON POPPY SEED MP SOAP
3 lbs goats milk mp soap base
zest from 1 lemon
lemon essential oil (about 1 teaspoon)
yellow food coloring (keep adding until you're happy with color)
poppy seeds (about 1 tablespoon, plus more for on top)
3lb loaf mold
Melt 2.5 lbs of soap base in a large bowl in microwave in 45 second intervals, stirring every 45 seconds until completely melted.
Once melted, stir in lemon zest, essential oil, food coloring and poppy seeds. Pour into loaf mold and place in fridge or freezer for an hour or two, until completely set and cool to the touch.
Unmold loaf and heat remaining half pound of soap base in microwave for 30 seconds. Stir soap and allow to cool down a bit. Liberally spray top and sides of lemon poppy loaf with rubbing alcohol then slowly pour the white soap over top and allow to gently drip down all sides. Sprinkle top with additional poppy seeds. Allow to cool before slicing.
