Guys- this soap is SOOOO pretty!!

When I was planning this recipe I wanted something sweet and feminine, and the result came out better than I expected!

The jasmine fragrance is soft and beautiful and the lavender buds lightly speckled throughout the clear base are visually stunning (my iPhone pictures really don’t do this one justice!).

I packaged them up in clear cello bags and finished them with twine and printed tags for the perfect little girly soap.

You can make your own by following this easy recipe:

and the lavender buds. Less is more with the buds because you don’t want them too condensed in the soap- just lightly speckled throughout. You can use up to 1 teaspoon, but I ended up using slightly less. Just like you would with a color pigment, add a little at first, stir them in, and then assess if you need to add more or not.

A little less than 1 teaspoon of buds looks like this all mixed in. It was plenty for the look I was aiming for.

Carefully pour the soap into the molds that you’ve decided to use and allow the soap to cool and harden completely before unmolding.

Gorgeous!!

These turned out exactly like I had hoped and I think a bar of this soap will look perfect sitting in a soap dish in my guest bathroom.

If you’re making these as gifts, be sure to package them in clear packaging so that the recipients can see just how pretty they are! 🙂

  1. Jasmine Oils are very very expensive and time consuming to gather, taking one person all day to pick the pounds of white petal jasmine flowers that only bloom a certain time of the year, and then to distill them. How can you sell them for such a low price, if they are with no synthetics, and are therapeutic grade? Are they tested. This is very important information to know, when using anything we make for skin application use. I am very interested in your product line, yet need to be sure the e. oils are of pure and tested quality (certified if possible) and that the carrier oils for the soaps will also fall into this category, anxiously awaiting your reply, your website is awesome, and want to be sure I can offer these ingredients in total integrity, thus needing, product assurance. the sourcing, the processing, and the no synthetics added. Testing results would be fabulous if you have them. thank you for a quick reply.

    1. Hi John! The Jasmine Essential Oils we carry are actually a dilution; they are diluted with fractionated coconut oil. We do have the test results and we encourage your to contact us via our live chat to obtain these sheets.

      Happy Bulking!

  2. beside the statement John made on the testing and purity of the products, has anyone made and used any of the products on their own self? If so we’re there any side effects, allergic reactions. I have super sensitive skin that even dove nor ivory helps. I have terrible brake outs, and has anyone utilized any kind of Shea butters in their products? Please reply needing help bad without paying for medicated products that only work for a week or 2.

  3. Evonne,
    shea, cocoa butters and coconut oil are all considered super fats in the soap making world. They all have amazing skin nourishing properties and can be extremely helpful for even the most difficult skin types. Also vitamin E infused soaps are great for dry and sensitive skins. Hope these tips help.

  4. Beautiful soaps! I was wondering if the lavender eventually tainted the soap brown? Every time I use lavender it does this to my colored or non-colored soaps, and it tends to look dirty. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thank you so much!
