Melt and Pour Herbal Soaps


A friend requested that I make the soaps that Sandy Maine of  Mother Earth Living wrote.  The article includes five recipes of handmade soaps and explanation on the essential oils and herbs used.
 
The soaps were made using melt and pour glycerine soap base and include the following.  Please click on the italized words to go to her site.
 
1. Common Plantain Soap - I was not able to find the common plantain leaves or oil on time for this post.

2. Tea Tree Antiseptic Soap - I added some hemp seed oil to this soap recipe.
 
Tea Tree with Hemp Seed Oil Soap
 
 
Lavender Buds and Rosemary Leaves
 
Water in the beaker was infused with lavender and rosemary and added both lavender and rosemary essential oils.
 
 
 
 
The tears were not easily grounded up in this shallow wooden grinder.
 
 
 
Enjoy!
