Fresh! is a homemade soap recipe scented with lavender, rosemary and eucalyptus essential oils and is perfect for adding some 'get up and go' to your morning routine.

Take note that this recipe only uses 650 grams of base oils. With the addition of the soap chunks, the recipe will make the same amount of soap as my normal recipes. If you do not add the soap chunks, be sure to increase the amount of base oils to fit your mould.
