I've been using fragrance oils in my soaps, which are amazing, but nothing beats the pure, natural scent of essential oils. This soap combines tea tree and lavender, which is a classic scent combination. The lighter top notes of the lavender perfectly complement the notes in the tea tree. The lavender is Hungarian lavender, which is a little muskier than French lavender is. Tea Tree is native to the Pacific Islands region and is used in its natural form for antiseptic purpose. There isn't much of that left after the process of soap making, but it still smells divine.
I use the cold process oven process to make my soaps - after I have heated the oils, mixed the lye, and allowed everything to come to the proper temperatures, I mix the oils and lye solution together. After it has reached trace and I have added the scent, I pour the soaps into a mold and put the molds in a low heat oven. This helps speed the chemical reaction. I still cure my soaps for a time to ensure proper water loss.
This listing is for one 4 oz bar of soap.
