step 1 Pulverize dried rosemary in a food processor, or buy ready-made.
step 2 Make the infusion (Infusion means “to make tea”) of the lavender and rosemary: Boil distilled water (non-chlorinated water is best) and then pour the 6 tablespoons of ground, dried lavender and rosemary and let sit for 10 minutes.
step 3 Add the lavender oil and rosemary oil to the infusion.
step 4 Melt the glycerin soap base and add ¼ cup of infusion per 1 cup of soap base. Stir until blended and then pour into molds.
step 5 Let sit for one month to completely set mold.
To achieve soap that is lavender colored, use “white” glycerin soap, rather than “clear.” Then, before pouring into the mold, tint with “soap dyes” made especially for soap making, combining red and blue until desired lavender tint is achieved.
Figure on having around 3 ¾ cups of soap solution when determining how many molds you will need to fill. The amount of soap you have when you’re done will vary based on the size and number of muffin tins or molds that you use.
