I really love how this soap turned out! It's got shea butter, lavender, and a tiny amount of mint. I used fresh dried lavender (homegrown) and instead of buying any scent oils, I simmered lavender and a few mint leaves ( i don't buy airfreshener, I always have something simmering) So I decided to start keeping the scented water! Frugality is awesome!

And here it is!

Very pretty! Lavender and mint are two of my favorite scents. I love how the lavender gives it such an earthy look. Huzzah for being frugal AND clean! Grin

Lovely! I don't know if I've ever actually smelled lavender and mint together? But lavender goes with everything, right?
