Use this Lavender Soap Recipe to create a bar that is always a welcome addition to any bathroom.
Lavender essential oil's calming scent is a great way to finish the day, especially when enjoyed in a warm, bubbly, soothing tub.

For a more 'well-rounded' lavender scent, try using a blend of lavender essential oils rather than just one variety.
You can easily make this recipe Palm Free, by simply switching out the palm oil for lard, tallow, shea butter, cocoa butter or mango butter and re-running the recipe through a lye calculator to get the correct amount of sodium hydroxide (lye) needed.
