Lavender Soap is easy and cheap to make, this is a great activity for your children to do at home as it makes a great gift. Lavender has many uses and many recognise it has the fragrance to help you relax and to promote sleep. Therefore using lavender soap as part of a bedtime routine makes sense!
Soap is seeing an upsurge in sales as we become more sustainable and are moving away from plastic. Shower gel has seen a decline in sales over recent months and many expect to see this trend continue this year. Therefore it is the perfect time to get making your own soaps, Soap making is relaxing and you can fragrance them to your choosing whether you are looking for uplifting smells like lemon or calming like lavender.
Lavender Soap smells gorgeous and is also gentle on your skin making it ideal for children to make and use, I have linked to Amazon where you can buy the supplies needed.

These lavender soaps are super easy to make and are an ideal science experiment for primary school students who like to understand how things are made. We are also looking at using much more natural products and many are moving away and looking at ethical soaps. Bars of soap are also on the increase once again as we are trying to use less plastic and therefore shower gel is out and soap bars are certainly back in.
