  • Soap molds (I bought a 2 pack silicone soap mold- 9.2X8.9X2 in)
  • Organic Dried Lavender Flowers
  • 2 lb oatmeal soap base
  • Lavender essential oil

Directions

  1. Cut your oatmeal soap base into squares and add to a large pot.img_6210
  2. Place your pot on the stove and bring to medium heat. Cover and wait for soap to melt completely, stirring occasionally.
  3. Once your soap is liquid add in about 30 drops of lavender essential oil. Stir.
  4. Add in 1 to 2 handfuls of dried lavender flowers and stir again. (Your flowers will float to the top.)img_6211
  5. Pour and distribute the mix into your soap molds.
  6. Freeze for about 30 minutes or until hardened throughout.
  7. Remove from molds and voila you made soap!
