Homemade Natural Soap

This is an all natural hand soap or body wash, with a very relaxing lavender sent. Enjoy!
2 cups of grated (cured) castile soap
1 tablespoon of palm oil
1/2 tablespoon glycerin (optional)
1 and 1/2 teaspoon lavender essential oil
2 1/2-3 cups of spring or distilled water
2 pump or foaming bottles (will make enough for 2)

Over low heat and in a double-boiler pan, add grated
soap, palm oil, glycerin and water. Simmer until all the
soap has melted and is liquefied. Remove
from heat and let cool slightly before adding the
essential oil, mix well. Let cool completely before
pouring into bottle and check the consistency
(if too thick, add more spring water and stir).

Using a funnel, slowly pour liquid soap into chosen
bottle. Avoid any lumpy soap that may have not
melted from going into the funnel. Add a funky label and your ready to use!
