How To Make Herbal Soap

  • Gather the plainest soap you can find (plain glycerine soap is best, but Ivory or another mild, unscented soap works as well), a soap mold, and a double boiler.
  • Coat your soap mold with vegetable oil.
  • Heat 1/3 cup water in a double boiler to a simmer.
  • Crumble 3 to 4 tablespoons of the kind of herb that you prefer into the water. (Lavender has a lovely fragrance)
  • Take the double boiler off the heat and allow the herbs to steep for 15 minutes.
  • Return the pan to the heat and add the bar of soap, cut into small pieces. (To make the soap melt quicker you can grate the soap)
  • When the soap is melted, pour the mixture into the soap mold.
  • Leave at room temperature until the soap has hardened.
  • Open the mold and remove the soap!
