Luscious Lemon-Lavender Soap
Luscious Lemon-Lavender Soap

Lathering yourself up with a yummy soap, simply makes a shower or bath!

Here's a super easy DIY that not only smells AH-mazing, but the ingridents will nourish and add to your skin's health.  Our skin is our largest organ and our first line of defense when it comes to health and wellness.  As one of our detoxification organs it is important to keep your pours open and breathing.  When our pours are clogged it doesn't allow toxins to leave the body and that's definitely not what we want.  Being aware of what we put on our skin is one of the best and easiest things we can do to support our everyday health.

In this DIY we use a Shea Butter Soap base which is not only a wonderful cleanser, but will nourish your skin and add moisture to help with its elasticity.  For some gentle exfoliation a natural loofa is placed in the middle of the soap mold to cleanse away dead skin cells from the pours to help your skin breath with more ease.  Finally we add in essential oils Lavender and Lushious Lemon Blend to bring an even deep layer a health and wellness to the skin.  Lavender is a gentle cleanser and healer for the skin, the Lushious Lemon Blend contains Lemon, Lemon Myrtle, and Ylang Ylang for cleansing along with Speramint and Eucalyptus Globulus to invigorate the skin. Young Living is my favorite company to get my essential oils from because they own all of their own farms and distilleries so everything is done in house with ethical practices honoring Mother Earth, our health, and all of their employees which is very important to me as a consumer.

I also added in some dried lavender flowers I had hanging for extra healing, aroma, and asticies, add them if you've got them but they're not necessary if you've added in the Lavender Essential Oil.

So, without further ado here's how you can make your own soap right at home that you know is safe for even for the most sensitive skin and will cleanse away the dirt and grime you don't want while leaving the good oils and microbes we do want!

Here's what you'll need:

2lb Shea Butter Soap base 
(should make ~6 bars of soap using the same molds I have linked below)
          Snag it on amazon here

How to Make your Lucious Lemon-Lavender Soap

Step 1 - Gather your supplies including Lavender Flowers if you're adding them

Step 2 - Cut your loofa into 1" sections and place one section in each mold

Step 3 - Cut your soap into 1`" cubes and melt them either in a double broiler or microwave 
(If using the microwave melt in 30 second increments and stir inbetween. Make sure to keep an eye on the soap so it doesn't boil over in the microwave)

Step 4 - Once the soap is melted add in dried lavender if using and stir then add in 30 drops each of Lavender and Lushious Lemon essential oils.  One of my favorite things about essential oils is that they are super flexible so you can always increase or decrease the amount of oil you add in depending on how fragrant you like your soap.

Step 5 - Pour soap mixture over loofas in your mold

Step 6 - allow to cool

Step 7 - When cooled pop out your soap and take a shower or bath!
