Summary
    How to do it
    Guide step %d
    1
    Weigh the soap base. You will need 300 g soap base (50 g per finished bar of soap). We recommend you use gloves because the soap base gets hot and because the lavender essential oil is very concentrated.

    2
    You can melt the soap base either in a water bath or in a microwave when it is cut into 3 x 3 cm chunks. Melt in the microwave at 80% power with 30 second intervals and stir between each interval to prevent heat damage.
