May Chang and Activated Charcoal handmade soap

I've wanted to have a citrus soap in the range for a good long while now, and finally, after a bit of a happy accident I do!  My newest addition to the Saponify range is May Chang and Activated Charcoal.

The 'accident' happened when I was making up the mini soap batches for my wholesale customer, and one of the soaps she'd requested was a simple lemon scent.  I made a plain white soap, scented only with May Chang, and it was beautiful!  Somehow though, I forgot to calculate my water discount into the recipe, so the resulting soaps from the first batch were quite soft, and they got damaged coming out of the silicone mould.  Very sad!  I really dislike waste, so I got to thinking about how to salvage the soaps, and came up with this recipe.  Cubing up the soft white soap was a painstakingly long process because it was so tacky, but it was so worth it for what they produced!  I ended up repeating the recipe because I loved how they came out so much, and I think this will become a regular in the range.
