Discover how to craft this citrusy delight and elevate your daily beauty regimen to new heights.

Ingredients Needed

  • Foaming bath butter. You can purchase it pre-made, or make your own at home as per our article: DIY Foaming Bath Butter.
  • Orange glycerine extract. You can buy it pre-made, or make it at home as per this article: DIY Orange Extract for Skincare.

Choose high-quality ingredients to boost the effectiveness and safety of your DIY beauty products. Also, where an essential oil is included in my recipes, I utilize either of two types of essential oils: pure, if added in drops, or diluted, if mixed in grams.

How to Make frankincense Carrier oil

For detailed steps on how to prepare the frankincense carrier oil, or oil extract, check out this article: DIY Frankincense Oil Extract.

For convenience, here is a brief method on how to make it:

  • Put one tablespoon of frankincense powder in a small glass bottle.
  • Add 100 grams (3.52 oz) of sweet almond oil.
  • Store the container for 20 days in a cabinet. Shake the container every day or so.
  • Important: after 20 days, filter it thoroughly to remove any residue completely.

Tools Needed

  • Scale to weigh quantities
  • Bowl
  • Small whisk
  • Optional – Electric hand mixer
  • Optional – Piping bag
  • Small glass container to store your DIY Orange Creamy Soap

Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.

Steps: DIY Orange Creamy Soap

1- Start by putting 100 grams (3.52 oz) of foaming bath butter in a bowl.

2- Add a drop or two of red liquid food coloring to the foaming bath butter. Thoroughly mix the color and assess if you desire a more intense hue. Be cautious not to overdo it, as an excessively strong color may affect the final appearance of the soap.

4- Add 2 grams (0.07 oz) of coconut oil.

Note: In case the coconut oil is in semi-solid form due to cold temperatures, you can easily melt it using a bain-marie (hot water bath). To do this, place a bowl containing the semi-solid coconut oil in a larger pot of hot, steaming water. Stir the mixture while it melts gradually.
