Homemade Lavender Soap Recipe Preparation

Place the pot on the stove and boil the water.
Place the bowl with beeswax, cocoa butter, shea butter, and sweet almond inside the pot.

Whip the mixture to obtain creamy form

While preparing this lavender soap recipe, there are few tricks you can do. For example, if you have double boiler, you can use it to melt all the ingredients. With double boiler, it will be so much easier than using a pot and a bowl.
Also, if you have microwave, you can microwave the ingredients. For this, you need to follow this procedure. First, you need to set the microwave for 1 minutes and 30 seconds. And, you need to take the bowl and mix the ingredients in each 30 second. So, while melting the oils and shea butter, you will mix them for 3 times. The remaining steps will be the same.
Also, when you add essential lavender oil, you may place the mixture in fridge for 5 minutes. So, when you whip the mixture, you will achieve the creamy form. If the mixture isn’t cool enough, you cannot whip it and have that creamy look. Homemade lavender body lotion will be part of your skin care.
You can apply this lotion every day.3 Homemade Soap Recipe and Benefits – Bay, Lavender and Olive Oil Soap
