Make your own natural homemade milk soaps with my new homemade lavender milk soap recipe! This homemade lavender milk soap recipe contains lavender essential oil for it’s relaxing aromatherapeutic properties. It also formulated for those prone to dry skin so it contains moisturizing Argan and apricot kernel oils in addition to organic cow’s milk.
I used Horizon Organic Milk for this particular soap recipe since it’s shelf stable for extended periods of time. My local Kroger generally has these on sale 1 for $10. (I’m not a huge milk drinker. I generally keep half and half for coffee and not much else so buying these makes sense for me. Of course there’s always the option to sub with half and half!)
I then topped my homemade lavender milk soaps with lavender blossoms and roses to add visual interest. You can of course omit the botanicals, but if you choose to add them be sure to turn your soap loaf upside down when you go to cut it into bars. This will keep the flowers where they belong and won’t cause drag lines down the sides of each bar as you cut them.
