How to Make Lavender Honey Lemon Soap

How to: Make Lavender Honey Lemon Soap

Making your own soap is very satisfying. Not only can you choose what kind of soap base you use, you can also choose from endless possibilities of scents, colors and textures. And even better? You get to share your handmade delicious smelling creations with friends and family. The official process of making soap from scratch is rather involved (remember Fight Club?). But there are a lot of resources (Amazon, craft stores) that sell “melt and pour” bases, that you literally just melt and add your desired colors, scents, textures (oats, poppy-seeds, dried flowers etc) and pour into molds. It’s a much easier and faster method–but you can still get very creative with your soap.

What you will need

2 lb goat’s milk melt-and-pour soap base (I found mine on Amazon, this yields about 6-8 bars for me in a 3.8 oz bar mold)
1 lemon rind, zested
3 tablespoons of dried lavender buds
2 tablespoons of honey
15 drops of lavender essential oil
6 drops of lemon essential oil
Jar or bowl for melting soap base (in microwave or double boiler)
Grater (for zesting)
Silicone mold
