New soaps - from the garden

New batches of soap have just come out of the molds - with freshly dried lavender and calendula just harvested from the garden sprinkled on top.  Both soaps are also made with a strong infusion (tea) of lavender and calendula as the base liquid to which the lye is added, so this gives medicinal healing value to the soap bars as well as sweet scent and beauty.  I had to take a short hiatus from soapmaking during the busy May-July garden months, but it's nice to get my hands back into this as I really do love the process of making soap from scratch.  More batches to come soon, as I am getting stocked up again for the fall.
