Keep or Give Lavender Soap
This is such an ideal homemade soap. It makes a guest bathroom more inviting, and it adds decorative flair anywhere you choose to have it on display. The lavender’s soothing aroma makes it a pleasure to use and the best thing about this soap is that it makes a terrific gift for the holidays.
It’s compact and lightweight, so it ships easily. Plus it has that homemade from-the-heart quality, while also conveying a sense of luxury. You get the best of both worlds when you give it as a gift.
