Maker: Victoria - The Bees Knees Niceties, United Kingdom
Soap Base used: Crystal Shea
Project Description: A beautiful earthy soap with lemon and lavender.
Maker Introduction A shea butter soap base, with exfoliating pollen granules, raw honey and finally lavender and lemon essential oils. Bees are awesome and their produce is always so full of luxurious goodness, combine some pollen granules and raw honey with the Stephenson’s Shea Butter Melt and Pour base, a couple of drops of both lemon and lavender essential oils and the result is so good. Certainly no need to moisturise after bathing with this soap bar!
Melt 4oz of Stephenson’s Shea Butter Melt and pour base using a glass jug and microwave. Stir well to ensure all lumps have been dissolved fully.
Add a generous tablespoon of pollen granules and 1 teaspoon of raw honey and stir well.
Add 4-5 drops (each) of quality lemon and lavender essential oils. Stir well.
Pour into your mould, this amount will produce 2 x 50g bars or one 100g bar. Decorate with a couple twigs of dried lavender once a film has formed over the soap.
Once fully set, tie with some natural hemp string and pop into a little burlap bag if you wish to give as a gift.
