      When using sugar in your recipie you should consider when you add it. If you add it to the lye water while still hot and waiting to cool, the sugar will convert to glycolic acid (which is usually a $35 spa treatment, google it to learn more.)You can also add it at trace and it tends to remain in the bar as a light exfoliant. You can also sprinkle some of the brown sugar lightly on the bottom of your mold and then again on the top of your frreshly poured soap. This will giv a little of a sugar scrub effect.

    Great idea using Lemongrass EO for you lemon bar. Citrus EOs tend to fade away quickly and Lemongrass hangs on for quite a while.
    I would caution people about soybean oil, it tends to clog pores. and since most of us ‘Soapers” superfat our recipies 5% there will be unsaponified soybean oil as well as the other oils free in the bar.
    You might also consider using Safflower powder to produce a pretty yellow in the soap when added at trace. Use at the rate of about 1 – 2 teaspoons per pound of oils. You can incorporate more or less depending on the shade you are going for.
    I also make a “lemon” bar that I incorporate ground lemon peels for a gardeners/mechanic type soap.
