Lavender Mist soap!


One of the reasons for wanting to make this soap is because I ordered a 1/2 lb of lavender buds off Amazon. However, I didnt realize HOW MUCH that would be. Oh my jeez.

Armed with melt and pour soap bases, I started my journey! I mixed lavender buds in the bottom in a clear glycerin base, spritzing with alcohol.


I then colored and scented a nice light purple base, layering that on top of the glycerin  Some of the lavender buds were all floaty-around!


And more lavender.


More base.


I was trying (and failed) to swirl. Oh well. More buds!



And cut and packaged. This was actually one of my most popular soaps when I first started. The lavender mist scent went well with the natural lavender buds in the soap.

  1. Ha! I did the same thing when I ordered calendula petals...I underestimated the amount, and have A LOT of them! The lavender buds add a pretty touch to your bars and the fragrance sounds wonderful. I had this one written down too because the description said it had apple blossom in it...it just sounds like a "pretty" fragrance! :)

    1. It's definitely pretty. :) it's sifter than just plain old lavender, but it still has nice lavender notes.I find that sometimes lavender can be overbearing, so it's nice to mic it up once in a while. :)
