[ Recipe: DIY SPA - Milady's Lavender Soap Recipe ] ~ from Monterey Bay Spice Co
milady's lavender soap recipe

This couldn’t be easier to make but never fails to impress! For an extra special touch, wrap each soap in a scrap of cloth tied with a bit of homespun. Tip: A muffin tin makes the perfect tool for molding soap. Makes 6 bars or rounds

1 pound olive oil melt-and-pour soap
1 tablespoon whole dried lavender flowers
1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers, crushed†
1 teaspoon lavender essential oil

Combine the oils and butter in a small pan and gently heat over low heat, stirring often, until melted and combined. Remove from heat and stir in vitamin E oil and clary sage essential oil until combined. Immediately pour into a small, clean glass jar or tin with a lid. Let cool undisturbed for several hours or overnight. To use, massage a small amount over face, neck and under the eyes each night after cleansing skin.

Please note: "crushed" can be done lightly with fingers, or a mortar and pestle
