Supplies Needed:

  • Soap base or soap scraps
  • lavender essential oil
  • dried lavander buds, chopped or crushed
  • rolled oats
  • wax paper
  • cookie sheet
If you do not have any soap base to work with collect scraps of soap until you have enough to make a medium-size soap ball.


Soak the soap scraps in a medium-size bowl with just enough water to soften them.

Add a few drops of lavendar essential oil.

Add a small amount of rolled oats and some dried lavender buds.

Mix everything with your hands and re-shape the mixture into a soap ball.

Place your soap ball, or balls if you have enough to make more, on a cookie sheet that has been lined with wax paper to dry.

If you want your soap ball(s) to dry faster you can put the cookie sheet in a heated over. Preheat your oven to 200° and then turn it off. Then place the cookie sheet inside.

For a smoother soap ball(s) you can omit the rolled oats and dried lavander buds.

    That was surprisingly simple to make! I really got a kick out of this, and I think that my mom would too! It would be cute to even make these into little soap molds, so that you get different shapes and designs.
