If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time you know how much I love lavender.  Sadly, my attempts to grow it have failed several times.  But my motto is “never give up,” so I’ll try again this year.

In the past, I’ve always bought lavender soap at the farmer’s market, but I wanted to make my own lavender rosemary soap.

Fortunately, I had a large bag of dried lavender from when my mom and I made lavender heat packs.  I also had the essential oil left over from the aromatherapy centerpiece I made last year.

To make your own I’ve included the supplies and instructions below.

Supplies:

1/2 lb. goat’s milk soap base

2 tablespoons dried lavender

2 tablespoons dried rosemary

10 drops rosemary essential oil

10 drops lavender essential oil

Soap coloring (optional)

Soap mold

Spritz bottle filled with rubbing alcohol

Instructions:

  •  Chop rosemary into fine pieces and set aside.

  • Cut the goat’s milk soap base and place into a microwave-safe bowl, then heat at 30-second intervals until soap is melted.

  •  Add lavender and rosemary essential oils to the bowl, mixing between additions.
  •  Sprinkle a small amount of dried lavender and chopped rosemary to bottom of the mold.
  •  Add 3-4 drops of coloring to soap mixture (optional).
  •  Using a plastic spoon, mix everything together.
  •  Spray bottom of the mold with rubbing alcohol.
  •  Add remaining rosemary and lavender to bowl and gently pour soap mixture into mold.

  •  Spray the top of the soap with the rubbing alcohol to eliminate bubbles from forming and allow to harden for at least one hour.
  • Gently pop out and store in an airtight container or ziplock bag until ready to use.

It looks as pretty as it smells!

  2. Wow! I had no idea it would be that simple. I think I’ll give it a try,too. Thanks!

  3. What a lovely project and it looks like it was fun to do, too! Thank you for sharing!

  4. Looks like you are hooked! Now it’s time to make soap from scratch using oils, lye, and a liquid such as goat milk.

  5. Hi, Angie! I just went back and read one of your earlier posts about growing lavender. I’ve never been successful growing it either and I, too, love it’s fragrance and the little purple blossoms. I think I have over-watered it, too. My daughter grows it and she just sort of ignores it and lets it get really dry. I’m interested to know what the proper type of lavender is for my mid-Michigan area. I’ll have to do some research as I never realized that certain kinds do better in certain areas.

    Well, good luck to us all in our attempts to grow bushels and bushels of lavender this year. And our lavendar soap making, too. Looking at your finished bars of soap, Angie,, I can almost smell them! I just might have to give that a try!
