Cucumber Melon Soap Variations
If you are handing these soaps out as gifts, you can also adjust the fragrance oils to change the scent too. Here are some ideas to try:
- Cinnamon – Perfect for fall and winter.
- Peppermint – Wonderful for anyone who gets a lot of headaches! Helps clear those sinuses!
- Lavender – This is ideal for those nighttime baths when you want to relax before bed.

- Fruit – Use other fragrance oils that are fruity, like apple, strawberry or mango. You can create so many different combinations!
Can I Use Food Coloring To Make Soap?
No, many people think that it’s okay to use food coloring when making soap, but it’s not the case. You should find a dye that it is specifically made for soaps. You can also use things like Hibiscus flowers to color the soap too.
