Make Lavender melt and pour soaps
Hey Guys, today I am making Lavender melt and pour soaps and lavender loofa soaps, but you can mix it up and make what ever type you like, It all depends what pure essential oils you have and what you have growing in your garden or what you can forage or purchase.
I like making orange, lemon, eucalyptus, coffee, rose and charcoal - separately, not all mixed together, but hey, that may even work out beautifully, that's the fun part about making melt and pour soaps or soap making in general, it is creative and you can have fun with it.
GATHER YOUR SUPPLIES -
Heavy base saucepan, only for soap making (second hand stores, the back of your cupboard, online 2nd hand or garage/yard sales are a good place to find one)
Silicone Moulds or other Soap Moulds
1KG Melt and Pour Soap Base (I'm using Creamy Goats Milk Melt and Pour base, purchased off ebay)
Dehydrated Lavender Flowers
Pure Essential Lavender Oil (approximately 40- 80 drops, but I go by scent more than counting the drops, as oils are variable to preference)
Prepare and cut loofa, place in moulds
Slowly heat the Melt and Pour soap in the saucepan until melted
Remove from heat and add essential oils, mix
Ladle soap mix into the moulds
Decorate the soap with the Lavender flowers
Let the Soaps completely set and remove from moulds.
Now they are ready to wrap and give as gifts or use yourself.
