WE MADE LAVENDER SOAP

Making your own soap is simple and fun. You can choose from a selection of endless scents and a variety of soap bases to make it your very own. Handmade soap is a great gift for family and friends and you can easily customize each bar to make it special and personalized. For this project we used melt and pour soap bases, which you can find at your local craft store, dried lavender, honey and lemon zest.
