Sweet Lavender, Lemon and Honey Melt and Pour Soap Tutorial DIY
This fabulous Sweet Lavender, Lemon and Honey melt and pour soap is super luxurious and easy to make. You'll have a super creamy, fragrant, and fancy looking soap. The honey and glycerin in the soap base act as humectants that will draw moisture into the skin - keeping it healthy and youthful looking. The goat's milk is rich and the lavender and lemon essential oils provide a soothing and refreshing experience.
What you'll need:
2 lb PureLux Goat's Milk melt and pour soap base
1/4 cup lavender buds
2 Tbsp Honey
Zest of lemon
20 drops of lavender essential oil
6-10 drops of lemon essential oilMicrowave safe container
99% isopropyl alcohol in spray bottle
Silicone Soap Mold
Prepare ahead of time: Take one lemon and a cheese grater and gently and carefully remove the lemon peel from the lemon. Then take a paper towel and press firmly on the zest to remove any excess moisture.
Take your Goat's Milk soap base and cut into evenly sized cubes and place into a microwave safe bowl. Melt by microwaving in 10-15 second intervals, stirring in between. Melt and stir until the soap is a smooth liquid.
Next mix in the honey, lemon zest, lavender buds, and essential oils.
Pour the mixture carefully into your molds. Once in the molds, spray the surface of the liquid soap with isopropyl alcohol to eliminate any bubbles on the surface of the soap.
Let the soap cool and harden for at least several hours before removing from the mold. Once out wrap securely in plastic wrap or cello wrap to prevent sweating. And you're done! Enjoy! Send one to your mom or sister, they'll be thrilled!
