Posted: July 30, 2012 in Aromatherapy Tip of the Day

This is an easy recipe for those of you wanting to try your hand at soap

You’ll need:

1 bar unscented glycerin soap — (4 oz.)
Metal cheese grater with large holes
1 Medium microwave safe glass bowl
9 drops Lavender essential oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 bottle with pump dispenser — (5 oz.)
tap water — measuring cup,
large metal mixing spoon, microwave

Grate the glycerin soap into the glass bowl. Add 1 cup tap water and stir. Microwave the soap and water for 1 minute on high heat. Remove and stir. Heat for another 30 seconds, then remove and stir again. If the soap is not completely liquefied, continue to heat at 10 second intervals until it is. Stir in the olive and essential oil. All the mixture to cool slightly,
then pour into the bottle.

Variation: Instead of using olive oil, you can use lighter oils, such as coconut, vitamin E, apricot or jojoba.
