I have been wanting to try making my own for the last year, and since I also had some dried lavender on hand I figured there was no time like the present.

You can purchase soap blocks at pretty much any hobby store or you can purchase them online. You can choose from; glycerin clear or white, goats milk, and several others. Use whatever strikes your fancy!

Place bowl in the microwave and heat for 30 second intervals, stirring each time, continue until soap is melted.

Add lavender essential oil and stir well to distribute, start with 5 drops and continue adding them 1-2 at a time until it smells good to you.

If desired add a bit of soap colorant (available right next to soap block) or you can leave it plain, it is still pretty with the lavender floating in it-the dried lavender acts as a gentle exfoliate too.

Pour soap into molds right up to the rim.
Sprinkle a little more lavender on top.

Spritz the top of each bar of lavender soap with alcohol, this will help dispel the bubbles. Allow soap to sit until it has cooled and hardened- about 2 hours.

Remove from mold, if gifting your homemade lavender soap wrap in burlap, raffia, or brown paper for a simple, homemade touch.
