Easy Homemade Lavender Soap Recipe:

The large block of the soap base is smooth and silky, and it cuts easily with a kitchen knife.  Slice the soap base into strips, then cubes, and place them inside the microwave safe measuring cup.

Melt in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring well in between to ensure that the soap is completely melted.  It took three 30 second heatings for each batch to 100% melt.  My pyrex measuring cup was only big enough to melt half of the soap at one time, so I ended up making 2 batches out of the 2 lbs of soap base.

Once the soap is completely melted, add 25-30 drops of lavender essential oil.  You can add more if you want a stronger scent.  Then add about 3 tablespoons full of dried lavender flowers.  You can add more or less depending on how many you want for texture.

You will also need about 20 drops of the purple liquid soap color.  You’ll need to mix the purple by dropping 10 red and 10 blue into its own empty dropper bottle.  Again, this amount can vary depending on how bright you want your soap color to be.

Once all of that is stirred well, pour it into the soap mold and let sit for at least 45 minutes to cool.  The 2 lbs of soap exactly fits to make 12 bars using this mold.

I found some burlap and purple raffia that I had in my craft stash to wrap around the soap.  I also had some brown flower tape that I found in the Walmart clearance section.  I also like to use these made-over cookie tins to hold the soaps when giving them as a gift.  This is great for Christmas, Mother’s Day, teacher gifts – so many possibilities with this! 🙂
