This three-fold lavender soap is a little more special than your usual lavender soaps. Not only will you infuse your own lavender oil made from New Zealand grown lavender flowers, but you will also be using NZ lavender hydrosol, a floral water from the essential oil distillation, and NZ lavender essential oil. Added shea butter gives the soap a luxurious feel and the high proportion of olive oil used in this soap makes for a gentle cleansing bar.
The DIY Soap Box contains all the ingredients you need to make approximately 1000 ml (10 bars) of soap.
As this is a Limited Edition, once they are gone, they’re gone for good. So get yours now!
