|Olive oil and lavender soap|
Ever since I saw this crocheted soap pouch, the idea stuck with me and I wanted to make some lavender soap for my closet and dress it with crocheted doilies. I even took to learning how to crochet.
Yesterday I made a few olive oil and lavender soaps that I intend to put with our clothes in the closet, to give some fragrance and keep the moths away. I also started crocheting doilies, so hopefully, by the time the soaps have cured, I'll have the doilies ready.
|Soap made from our own olive oil and lavender leaves from my garden|
I used 3 tea cups with rounded bottom instead of molds, lined them with plastic foil as best as I could, blended my dried lavender leaves together with confectioners sugar (which speeds up the insulation process) in my multi and added them at a trace. I've added no other fragrance, but feel free to add couple of drops of lavender essential oil and even some color. I just worked with what I had at home and in garden this time.
Then I poured the soap mixture in in the cups to about half full, covered them with foil and left them in a warm place for an insulation. They were ready before 24h have passed and this time olive oil gave a very bright color as you can see. I can't wait to have my lace doilies ready to complete this project.
