Homemade soap with herbs

Recently I visited my cousin and we made soap, adding herbs and flowers from the garden.  It came out pretty good and smells delicious, so I’ll tell you how we did it.  It was super easy, quick – and fun.

First we cut up blocks of glycerine soap (available at craft stores like Michaels) and put them in a heatproof cup.IMG_1265

We microwaved the soap at increments of 20 seconds until it was fully melted.

Lavender buds from the garden were added.

We took sage from the garden and broke it up into little pieces.

We threw in some flower petals.  Fresh squeezed lemons were added to the melted soap that had lavender mixed in it and fresh squeezed limes were added into the soap with the sage.

Some glitter was also added and we stirred up each batch.

And put in the refrigerator to harden.
