Chai & Lavender Soap


I am a huge fan of spices. I love Chai tea, gingersnaps, spiced pound cake, spiced apple cider, carrot cake, curries and more. I am not a big fan of many floral scents. You won’t find to many in my personal collection. However, spice things up and I am there. (Uh-oh. Pun not intended.) 🙂 

I was participating in the Valentine Swap that Andee hosted, when I decided I wanted to make a Spiced Lavender Soap. Yum! With this blend, I am a convert to the Lavender Fan Club. This scent is not super strong like the potpourri pine cones sold in December. It is light and polite. It may even make some converts to the Spice Fan Club! I enjoyed this soap so much I just had to share with everyone. Join me in the kitchen to make a soap with an exciting scent blend.

Heat your oils gently until liquid. Mix lye into six ounces of water. Slowly pour lye solution into oils in the soap bucket. Using an immersion blender, mix until trace in reached. Add fragrance and color. Mix well. Pour soap into mold. Allow to sit for 24 hours. Remove from mold and cut. Stack the bars to allow the soap to cure. Longer curing time will result in a harder bar. Enjoy and thank for joining me in the test kitchen!

My curiosity has me trying new things. I love taking walks with my dog as well as staying at home to cuddle with the dog and my cats. Some of my favorite scents include Hinoki Wood, Rose Garden, Jasmine and Gladiator.
