Recipe for Lemongrass + Calendula Soap

Recipe for Lemongrass + Calendula Soap

This is one of my all-time FAVORITE soaps to make (and sniff!).

Lemongrass essential oil has antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties.  Plus, it smells ah-mazing!

You can order lemongrass essential oil from a variety of shops online or in retail stores.  But my go-to's for a good quality oil are:  

  • Brambleberry
  • Wholesale Supplies Plus
  • New Directions Aromatics

And for dried calendula petals, I like to buy from Amazon here.


10 oz. Coconut Oil

10 oz. Palm Oil

10 oz. Canola Oil

2 oz. Shea Butter

4.65 oz. Lye (Sodium Hydroxide)

10.55 oz. Water

1 oz. Lemongrass Essential Oil

Small handful of Calendula petals
