Makes exquisite soap from soap flakes!

Here is my home made lavender soap. I used three cups of soap flakes , use either lux or dripak pure soap flakes, 200ml of water and 50ml of  olive oil. Place in a jug and microwave on full for several minutes until the soap is all melted and stir the mixture. Do not leave unattended and check on the mixture to prevent it bubbling over. When all melted, allow to cool slightly, add lavender essential oil and dried lavender flowers. Poor mixture into a a tray, or moulds and allow to cool. Leave until well set and turn out. This soap is beautiful and would make a lovely original present and can be wrapped imaginatively. You could use all manner of other items such a vanilla and honey, orange zest, orange essence, peppermint essence, different colourants and plants to create new and exciting combinations. These would make great presents. Why not give it a try!
