You can use this recipe to make green apple soap, or alter it a little and make crab apple soap. I remember this green apple soap as being the first one that I sold to a healthfood store, also recall that the owner said her daughter loved green apple scented stuff. In the store, it wasn’t the biggest seller but it sure did smell nice, although this scent would fade too. And the crab apple, although it smelled nice and fresh, wasn’t a big seller.

Here are some awesome and creative ways you could make green apple soap, some are definitely more complicated than others
Nice and simple 2-tone to represent the peel and the inside portion:
Very creative! In order to make this soap, you’d have to go: curved green layer on the bottom, white-ish layer with 4 beads of brown soap suspended in center, then topped with another curved layer of green soap, then some type of stick to finish it:
Another creative person! This could maybe be done free hand, with practice for sure. If free hand, you’d have to go: green layer on bottom, another light green layer, white-ish layer, then strategically pouring green – gosh, forget it! So then, an easier way would be to make a green log of soap, carve it apple shape, make new soap, tint layers, place green carved log in center, add those 2 little beads of green soap for the leaves, pour white-ish soap on top. So it would be complicated in a different way, and take longer, but then you’d not be wasting apple soap that didn’t look like apples.
Remember the psychology of color, it can make or break the sale of your soaps.
Green apple scent is so popular there is an $85 bottle of it selling at the Bay.
