Lavender Soap – Scented Heart Soaps
Today we have a fantastic lavender soap making tutorial. Making soap can be super easy and fun to do and I wanted to share this easy soap making process here on The Inspiration Edit.
Lavender is one of my favourite fragrances. It’s so relaxing and this recipe uses Lavender essential oils. The soaps are love heart shaped but you can choose whatever shape you like.

The Benefits Of Lavender
Lavender is revered for its calming, soothing, and relaxing properties. I love the relaxing scent of Lavender essential oil and it is great for adding to soaps and homemade natural products.
You can also apply Lavender to your temples and back of the neck to enjoy its relaxing aroma and help melt away feelings of stress or tension. Lavender is great for helping kids to sleep. We sometimes mix lavender oil with water and spritz it on the bedding and sheets before my child sleeps.
Lavender is great for the soles of the feet, for adding to the bath salts and for simple rest and relaxation.
