This shows you some crafting projects that I’ve done using items that I’ve gotten dirt cheap or free from using coupons. I’ve decorated my house using items like melted crayons, toilet paper rolls, toothpaste containers, dental floss and more!

EASY Lavender Home Made Soap Making | Great Gift Idea!

 

I just love this EASY way to make home made bar soap!  I made 2 batches (24 bars) that I’m going to use as Christmas gifts this year!  They look and smell lovely – and it was so much fun to make them!

  What You’ll Need:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Microwave Safe Measuring Cup w/ Spout

 

 

  • Spatula

 

 

  • Decorative tape and/or ribbon

 

 

The large block of shea butter soap base is smooth and silky, and it cuts easily with a kitchen knife. Slice the soap base into cubes, place them inside the measuring cup, and melt in the microwave in 30 second increments. I did 3 batches of a third of the soap base each time.  Stir well after each microwave session to ensure that the soap is completely melted.  It took a minute and 30 seconds for each batch to 100% melt. Combine about 10 drops of red soap coloring and 10 drops of blue into an empty drop container.  Now add 7 drops of the purple color to the melted soap and stir until even.  Then add 10  drops of Lavender Essential oil and mix well.  Last, sprinkle and stir in some dried lavender. Pour into the soap mold and let sit for at least 45 minutes to cool. I found some of the brown decorative tape and purple raffia on clearance at Walmart.  Use whatever you want to wrap your bars as a personal touch.  :)

It took about a half hour to melt and pour the 3 batches.  Add another half hour after the bars have cooled to wrap them up – and that is how you get 12 beautiful home made lavender bars in less than an hour!!!

You could make some Home Made Peppermint & Lavender Foot Lotion to go with these bars of soap!!!!
