I was clearing out some shelves that hadn't been looked at in years when I came across an old soap making kit Alicia had when she was younger. I remember that originally it had glycerin based soap in it. It also had dyes and molds for soap making. She had a lot of fun with that, so I had purchased a cream based soap for her to continue with it. Shortly after that, she must have lost interest because when I found the kit, it still had most of that soap in it.
I looked online to see if the same kit was still available. I didn't see it, but here is a similar one. Also here. This one is cute for kids.
The soap base was no longer labeled, but I am guessing it is a glycerin based product like this or this.
I decided it would be fun to make some soap and give it to her to go with the baby gifts I am working on. I know that lavender is a great essential oil to induce relaxation and sleep, and I love how oatmeal makes my skin feel. It is so soothing. So I decided to make a Lavender-Oatmeal soap.
First, I weighed out about 6 oz of the soap base and started melting it in a clean #10 can sitting inside a pan of water. You can also try melting it in the microwave.
When the soap was all melted, I filled the molds about 1/2 full. The amount of soap I made was enough for 2 round bars.
I bought my tissue paper and the Baker's Twine at Dollar Tree! It comes in packs of 3 for just $1.00 (or course). I love this stuff, I have used it for so many things!
