Lavender Citrus Melt and Pour Soap Recipe

2 cups grated soap
1/2 cup water
6 vitamin E capsules
1 T. ground dried lemon verberna leaves
1 T. dried lavender buds
10 drops lavender oil
20 drops sweet orange oil

Melt soap with water. After it has melted, add vitamin E oil and remaining ingredients. After the soap has cooled and thickened, scoop out a small handful of the soap and roll into a ball. Flatten the ball to create a disk shape. As the soap cures, press the soap into a firmer and smoother shape. If you like, mix a little orange oil on your hands and polish the soap smooth.
This soap will discolor if the lavender buds are added too soon to the melted soap. If you do not like the rough surface and the darkened color, omit the lavender buds and add extra lavender oil. Or, after a week of curing, you can slice thin shavings from the soap to smooth it and remove any dark patches.
