Here is the video tutorial for the Lavender Honey Lemon Soap.
In this video, I will show you step-by-step how to make this fabulous Lavender Honey Lemon Soap. It’s very easy to make, and creates a creamy, fragrant, luxurious soap. The honey and glycerin base are humectants that draw moisture to the skin. The goat’s milk is very rich, and the lavender and lemon provide a soothing, yet invigorating experience. I used an all-natural goat’s milk melt-and-pour glycerin soap base because I wanted to avoid unnecessary chemicals and preservatives that can cause irritation.
Here are the ingredients you will need:
- 2 lbs goat’s milk soap base
- 1/4 cup lavender buds
- 2 tbsp honey
- zest of 1 lemon
- 20 drops lavender essential oil
- 6 drops lemon essential oil
- knife for cutting
- cheese grater
- glass bowl for heating soap in microwave or on stove
- glass measuring cup for pouring
- silicone soap mold
- Zest one lemon using a cheese grater or lemon zester and set aside.
- Cut goat’s milk soap base into 1″ cubes.
- Microwave Method: (Optional) Place cubes in glass bowl and microwave at 30-second intervals until soap is completely melted. Be sure not to burn the soap.
- Double Boiler Method:
- Fill large pot with 2″ to 2-1/2″ of water.
- Place soap in glass bowl and fit over the rim of a large.
- Heat water to boiling, then reduce to medium heat as soap melts.
- Once soap is completely melted, carefully remove glass bowl from the pot and transfer the melted soap to a glass measuring cup.
- Add the lavender, lemon zest, honey, lavender essential oil, and lemon essential oil and stir, mixing completely.
- Spray silicone soap molds with surgical spirits or high-percentage isopropyl alcohol (I used 70%). This helps to reduce/eliminate bubbles.
- Pour soap into the molds.
- Spray again with surgical spirits or isopropyl alcohol to remove bubbles.
- Sprinkle some extra lavender buds on top for aesthetics (optional).
- Cool completely.
- Gently remove soap from the molds.
This soap was so fun to make and it came out beautifully.
