1/4 cup distilled water
1 tbs. almond oil
1/8 tsp. vanilla fragrance oil

In a heavy saucepan bring the water to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Remove the pan from the heat and add the almond powder, almond oil, and vanilla fragrance oil. Stir until well blended. Spoon the soap into a mold and let set for five hours or until hardened. Makes 1 bar. This soap is a great cleansing soap without drying out the skin

Handmade Soap Recipes - Jojoba Oil M&P Soap
1 lb. M&P soap
1 T. jojoba oil
1 tsp. beeswax

Lavender Citrus Soap
2 cups grated soap
1/2 cup water
6 vitamin E capsules
1 T. ground dried lemon verberna leaves
1 T. dried lavender buds
10 drops lavender oil
20 drops sweet orange oil
Melt soap in the water. After it has melted, add vitamin E oil and the remaining ingredients. After the soap has cooled and thickened, scoop out a small handful of the soap and roll into a ball. Flatten the ball to create a disk shape. As the soap cures, press the soap into a firmer and smoother shape.
Mix a little orange oil on your hands and polish the soap smooth. This soap will discolor if the lavender buds are added too soon to the melted soap.
