Quick Homemade Lavender Vanilla Soap
Okay, moms, it’s time to let the reigns down and let your teens make this craft. It’s easy enough and shouldn’t be too terribly messy. These lavender vanilla soaps could be something they could give their teachers for Valentine’s Day, and maybe you’ll get one also.
- ¾ pound Shea Butter melt and pour soap base
- One tablespoon of dried lavender flowers
- 10 drops lavender essential oil OR (my affiliate link) 5 drops of doTerra 100% pure Lavender Essential Oil
- 10 drops vanilla essential oil
- Large glass measuring cup
- Spoon or wooden popsicle stick
- Rectangular soap molds (3)
- Spray bottle of rubbing alcohol
Except for the 100% pure doTerra Lavender essential oil, all of these soap making supplies are available at Michael’s. You can also find similar products on Amazon too. Keep in mind that the essential oils you find at Michael’s and even on Amazon are not 100% pure. I guess for teens; it doesn’t matter unless it matters to you. doTerra doesn’t sell vanilla essential oil anyway.
Instructions for Quick Homemade Lavender Vanilla Soap
Step 1. Sprinkle a few lavender buds into the molds.
Step 2. Using a butter knife, cut soap base into cubes, and place in measuring cup.
Step 3. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir very well. If not completely melted, repeat for 10-second intervals until fully melted. Let cool slightly.
Step 4. Add essential oils one drop at a time.
Step 5. Stir lavender buds into the mixture.
Step 6. Pour mixture into the soap molds.
Step 7. Spray lightly with rubbing alcohol. This step helps to prevent bubbles.
Step 8. Let sit for about 30-60 minutes and remove from molds.

Lastly, these homemade soap bars are likely to be the best for your teen’s skin. With so many additives in store-bought soaps, you can’t beat making your soap at home.
