Oh My Gosh! I just love this hot process recipe for Lavender-Rosemary-Vanilla exfoliating soap! The blend of essential oils in this soap is extraordinary! I just can't think of a better word. The Lavender is calming, the Rosemary increases clarity, and the Vanilla is just plain soothing. I also add a natural colorant of French Pink Clay which gives the soap an amazing "slip." This means it's great for shaving too! I add in some organic Lavender flowers for texture and exfoliation---and BAM! Amazing, lathering, long lasting, natural herbal soap that is GREAT for your skin, mind, and spirit!
