Lavender and Tea Tree

 
This week's cold process soap is loaded with skin loving oils, butters and contains Lavender essential oil and Tea Tree essential oil.  This was made for a friend's daughter.  I definitely hope her skin will love this soap recipe.
 
 
Ingredients include Coconut Oil, Palm Kernel Flakes, Olive Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Mango Butter and Castor Oil.  I also added activated charcoal, colloidal oatmeal, lavender flowers and essential oils of Lavender and Tea Tree for more skin benefits.
 
 
Activated charcoal mixed in with the oils and butters.
 
 
Added some lavender flowers for some exfoliation.
 
 
After pouring the soap batter into the mold.  I was contemplating leaving it
just like this.
 
 
But of course, I had to give it some texture.  So I did a little spoon swirl.
 
 
 Added more of the lavender flowers for some color.
 
 
I allowed the soap to settle for a few days before cutting.  Some of the flowers came off the top of the soap.  I sure hope this recipe would just be perfect for her needs.  Thank you "J" for giving me the opportunity to research and learn more about soap ingredients.
