Submitted By:

The Perfect theraputic scent to help you relax after a long day at work.


1 lb M&P goats milk soap
2 Tsp. Beeswax (omit for a softer bar)
1 Tbsp. Solid Coconut Oil
2 tbsp. powdered green tea (grind in a coffee grinder)
2 tbsp. lavender powder
1/2 tsp lavender fragrance oil
1/4 tsp cucumber fragrance oil
1/4 tsp bergamot fragrance oil
5 drops green tea fragrance oil
optional: soap coloring green and purple


Melt soap base, coconut oil and beeswax in a double boiler. When completely melted, remove from heat and add powdered lavender & green tea and the fragrance oils. Pour into molds and let solidify.
Green tea is used for reflection and enlightenment and lavender and cucumber are used to soothe and relax.(to enhance your experience, use with relax, man! tub tea.)
Get creative. I like to separate the melted ingredients and add the green tea to one half and the lavender to the other. I color the lavender with purple soap color (red and blue soap dye) and green tea side with a couple drops green. I cut the scent in half and put it in each side and then...swirl, baby, swirl!!!!!!!!
