I don't quite know what it is about Lavender I am not keen on, but I am just not. I do know that there are many other people who really love the fragrance, so I have made a batch of Lavender and Tea Tree soap.
I thought that I would see whether the guest soaps I made the other day were a bit of a fluke, so I made a slightly bigger batch than I needed and filled the moulds I have. I still need to work out how to get the back of the soap nice and tidy, but otherwise I do like the results. I have used a little alkanet root as a colour, and I think that they look a little like stone.
