Recipe type: Easy Homemade Soap
Ingredients
  • 3 bars of unscented, soap for sensitive skins ( I use simple, or a block of plain olive oil soap )
  • 200 ml cooled boiled water
  • 50 ml avocado oil
  • 50 ml almond oil
  • 30 g beeswax pellets
  • 25 drops essential oil of your choice (lavender or rose geranium is nice)
  • Small handful of dried lavender flowers (poppy seeds, oatmeal also works well)
  • small plastic pots to use for molds - lightly oiled to assist with easy release (recycled baby food pots works well)
Instructions
  1. Grate the soap into a large heat proof bowl, this can be speeded up considerably by putting the soap in the microwave for 30 seconds first.
  2. Add the water and place over a pan of simmering water on a low light. Stir well with a metal spoon until the grated soap melts into the water.
  3. Add the oils and fragrance and stir well, you can substitute any other natural oils according to your preference.
  4. The addition of beeswax pellets helps the soap to set faster and makes it last a lot longer.
  5. Once thoroughly blended, spoon the mixture into the pots and smooth off the top with a knife.
  6. Leave to cool and set this might take at least a week.
  7. Once set, wrap the soaps in greaseproof paper and allow to dry further until you need them.
