California has been a hot mess of weather this winter. One minute it’s cold and rainy and the next it’s back to summer heat, which means lots of dry and itchy skin. These lavender and oatmeal soaps made with shea butter are exactly the cure for that and smell wonderful. The oatmeal works as a moisturizing exfoliant and the lavender is calm and soothing. Make a batch to give to friends, or make a few in heart shapes for Valentine’s Day!

Once the soap is melted, pour in the lavender petals and oatmeal and stir. If you only have fresh lavender you can learn how to dry it with our Dried Flower Bouquet tutorial.
Let the soaps cool and then pop them out of the trays to start using.
