It's like Sri Lanka met the Australian outback. With therapeutic aromas such as Eucalyptus and Lavender coming together with a spice blend you are bound to have something unique and special. It's a very interesting combination, for the daring and wild at heart.
Lemon Lavender Soap - Priscilla Woolworth
I like the natural and earthy look of this soap. I also like the stamp on it. I've yet to put lemon and lavender together in my own soaps but I really like the sound of it. I can imagine the smell. I hope to get around to trying it some day. In the mean time I can admire others :-) Take a moment to take a peek at Priscilla's shop.
"This exquisite hand made soap is a labor of love from a retired couple whose goal is perfection. Following a medieval recipe they discovered, the couple made no compromises -- beginning with their choice of costly cold pressed extra virgin Arbequina olive oil from their estate.
The soap's delicate scent comes from essential oils steam-distilled from rosemary leaves, lavender petals and pine needles. To the fresh soap they add a pinch of sea salt as well as lemon juice"
Lavender Handmade Soap
Earth Song Botanicals Lavender soap has a beautiful, fresh-from-the-field scent. Moms love to bathe their little people with this one, before bed, to help them drift off to sleep! I like the style of this soap, it looks like swirled ice cream. I bet the kids love it.
I really like the way this soap is ribbed. It is different than the wavy cut soaps we see so often. The color is the perfect lavender color. I also like the simple packaging with the picture of lavender on it. It's from New Zealand and that entices me a bit too as I think of grand nature when I think of New Zealand. I chose this soap for all of those reasons. I hope you'll take the time to check out their shop.
I chose this soap today for it's feminity and pretty color. It's simple, but simply perfect might be a better way to put it as this is what people think of when they think of the classic lavender soap. It's lavender in color, lavender in scent. That makes it a no brainer. You can't go wrong with a simply perfect lavender soap.
"Classic lavender soap is always a best seller. Made with pure essential oil, Lavender is perfect for all skin types."
Now besides the beauty of this bar there is real luxury to it as they claim just take a look at their ingredient list:
Olive Oil, Palm Kernel Oil, Coconut Oil, Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Bulgarian Lavender Essential Oil, Lavender Buds, Chamomile Flowers, Calendula Petals, Alkanet Root
With all of that packed in to one bar your skin gets nutrients it's never even heard of before ;-) So please take a moment to check out their website by following the link at the top of this post.
Lavender handmade natural soap bar Besides the natural look of this soap, something that I really like about it is the texture. I love when a soap makes me want to grab it. That is why I decided to feature this one today. Some times it's how creamy and smooth it looks and some times it's the roughness or raw look of a soap that draws me in.
It's just like a tart...you see one and you want to eat it. Well a soap should make you want to touch it and feel it. I hope you all enjoy this one for that feature.
I love the subtleness of the color of this soap. Natural but with a bit of color swirled throughout. It's a classic lavender scent and made with all natural ingredients, including shea butter a natural moisturizer. Give BurntMill a look on Etsy by following the link above. Thanks and hope you enjoy today's soap.
Now that I have a few followers I felt it was time to give a little more info about this blog. I am a handmade soap maker, I love what I do and love sharing my craft with the world. Handmade soap is kind of like food, there are many different kinds that are delicious and you want to try it all. So I got an idea one day to feature all kinds of soaps that I like or that I feel my readers would like and put them into collections. Everybody loves lavender, it is one of the biggest selling aromas for bath and body products and that includes soap of course. I make several types of soap that contain lavender and definitely couldn't leave lavender out when featuring soaps so that is when I decided to create the Handmade lavender soap blog.
Just like food I don't think you should limit yourself to one kind. We all try different types of food from Mexican to Thai and we all like different foods. I feel soap is the same way...you might feel like Italian one day and try olive oil soap and then like Thai the next and try coconut milk soap. You might go to an Italian restaurant and the food isn't very good, but then the next day you try another Italian restaurant and it is the best. This is why I decided to put collections together so people could try many different types of one type of soap in one place.
With that said I hope you all will continue to follow this blog and see the many different kinds of handmade lavender soap out there. I currently have a few other blogs that you might also be interested in. Please follow and help support any of them that you like. The links are below: Coconut Milk Soap Handmade Rose Soap I also have a main blog that features my soap and a lot of nifty recipes, ideas etc. that you might also like to follow at DeShawn Marie Handmade Soap
If you are a soap maker and think that your soap would make a good addition to any of these blogs please leave a comment to this post with a link to your soap and I will get back to you. Thanks so much and keep soaping!
DeShawn Marie Cedarwood Lavender Handmade Soap Well obviously when deciding to create this blog to feature all the wonderful lavender handmade soaps from around the world I can't leave my own soap out of that. Today I am featuring my favorite soap. I developed this soap a little over a year ago and it is now one of my absolute favorites. I love it because it makes me feel so connected to nature. The colors, the smell, etc. just give me a feeling that is hard to put into words.
It's like taking a walk in the woods and then the smell of the woods stays with you all day long. I love that the scent stays on my skin and that I can take a shower in the morning and still smell the scent on me at night when I go to bed. I hope you all will take a look at this soap. It's also a great gift for anybody, especially during the fall season.
It's also made from Avocado oil which is great for your skin. The recipe uses oils to create a super lathering bar, even in cold water; while being super moisturizing for dry skin at the same time. Hope you enjoy it.

Natural Lavender Cold Processed Handmade Soap at Waddlers This is Waddlers best selling handmade soap with a beautiful soothing smell and deep purple colour. The natural soap’s colour is obtained using a root rather than synthetic ingredients. I will not add anything I am not comfortable using on my own children.
Lavender Lemon Handmade Natural Soap Back by popular demand, the scent this time is very fresh & clean - lavender and lemon. I’ve never been a big fan of lavender, but combined with the lemon, it’s transformed into something really great. Both of these essential oils have anti-bacterial properties, making them perfect for this type of soap. Even if you aren’t a gardener, if you like a good scrubby soap, this one will definitely do the job!
Lavender Lemonade is one of the easiest ways to use lavender into the kitchen. Steep 2 tablespoons dried lavender flowers in 1 quart homemade or store bought lemonade for a couple of hours. Use room temperature, not cold lemonade. Strain before drinking.
