Sunscreen & Mosquito Repellent Soap

First up I have to let you know  I have been working on this for  4 months now  to perfect this  to have both UV Protection and be Mosquito Repellent   This soap is not that hard to make and I hope you will enjoy it 

This soap makes a great face soap, moisturizes and smells great  Safe for kids too and those with sensitive skin. This soap is gentle enough to use everyday, it cleanses and softens the skin.

I know I could prolly Sell this and make a ton of money but to be honest  money has no meaning to me
I would Rather Show you how to do it yourself and empower you with knowledge  how to make it 

2 4-ounce bar Castile soap  or use Meyers or any favorite bar soap
5 drops citronella essential oil
5 drops lemongrass essential oil
5 drops rosemary essential oil
5 drops eucalyptus essential oil
5 drops mint essential oil
5 drops sandalwood essential oil
5 drops Jasmine essential oil 
5 drops raspberry essential oil 
4 drops of carrot essential oil   
3 drops of vanilla  essential oil  
1/3 cup coconut milk or rice milk or almond milk if allergic
4 tablespoons rice bran


Shred the soap over a bowl and set aside.

In a heavy saucepan over low heat, warm the milk and gradually add the shredded soap until the mixture becomes a sticky mass.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the rice bran and add all the essential oils, stirring until the bran is evenly distributed.

Spoon the soap into a mold and let set for four hours or until hardened.

For extra large body bars, double the recipe and use an empty milk carton as a soap mold.
