How I Made Soap Without Blowing Up The House

It’s true… I made soap without blowing up the house.  My sister-in-law Molly and I had been planning to make homemade soaps for ages.  In doing some research I realized that I was far to big of a wimp (and a complete failure at most crafts) to make soap using a lye process.  I like my eyes, throat, hands, and various other appendages that I would likely have lost if going to lye route.  I decided we should use a simple glycerin soap base and go from there.  I am pretty sure Molly is happy she still has all of her body parts in tact thanks to my research.  And as such… We invented a simple lavender soap recipe and I figured I’d show you how-to make it too.  Because… I like your body parts as much as I like you.

Homemade Lavender Soap

Supplies Needed:

  6. Where do you buy dried lavender? I’ve made soap before with the oily scents, but it always smells so unpretty. I want to try this.

  7. Great idea. And if you didn’t blow up the house there’s a fighting chance I might not either.
