Looking to learn how to make your own lavender soap?

Making your own soap is very satisfying. Not only can you choose what kind of soap base you use, you can also choose from endless possibilities of scents, colors and textures.

The official process of making soap from scratch is rather involved (remember Fight Club?).

Luckily, there are a lot of resources that sell melt and pour soap bases, that you can simply heat to liquify, add your desired colors, scents, textures, and then pour into molds to solidify.

It’s a much easier and faster method than making soap from scratch, bu t you can still get very creative with your soap recipes.

What you need

1. Chop soap into smaller pieces. It will melt faster this way.
2. Place in bowl and microwave or double boiler to liquify.

TIP: Be careful to watch soap and melt it slowly so it doesn't burn.  If you are using microwave, heat in 30 second increments, stirring frequently. If you are using a double boiler, melt on low.

3. Zest your lemon. Be sure to wrap in a paper towel and press out any extra fluid. This prevents it from clumping together in your soap.

Side note: the glycerine in the goat milk soap base acts as a preservative and keeps the lemon rind from molding.

4. While your soap chunks are in the microwave (or double boiler), measure out your lemon zest, lavender and honey in small bowls for easy adding once your soap is melted.

7. Have your mold ready on a flat and even surface. You’ll want to move quickly before the soap cools too much. Mix everything thoroughly again, and pour mixture into mold.

8. Once mixture is poured into mold, sprinkle extra lavender buds on top. Do so while it’s still warm so buds solidify with soap.

9. Let the soap cool until bars are completely solid.
