  • 1 fl. oz. Aura Cacia Lavender Essential Oil
  • 2 1/2 lbs. Melt-and-Pour Soap Base
  • 9x9 Nonstick Cake Pan, greased
  • Wax Paper
  • Tape
  • Silicon Spatula
  • Kitchen Scale (oz.)
  • Double Boiler


  1. Spray and line a nonstick baking pan with wax paper, folding excess wax paper over the rim. Tape edges and set aside.
  2. In a double boiler over simmering water, heat soap base on low until melted. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir until well-combined and cool enough that a "trace" develops when you lift spoon. Add essential oil and stir again until combined.
  4. Pour soap base mixture in baking pan and allow it to set. Once firm, remove soap from pan and cut into pieces. Let sit for 3 days before using.
  5. For a decorative touch, sprinkle surface of soap with dried lavender flowers directly after pouring into baking pan.
