My mother-in-law is home-growing some lavender plants, and while she was showing them to me she wondered aloud if I would be able to use them in my soap. Has anyone had experience in using fresh lavender plants to scent their CP soap? We thought maybe if we let the leaves (or maybe even the whole plants) soak in some oil for awhile, it might transfer enough lavender essence to come through in the soap, but I have never attempted anything like that before. If anyone has tried it, I'd love to hear some thoughts. Would it work at all or be too weak to smell in the end product? What would be the best oil to infuse it into? How long would it need to sit? I don't sell my soap, it's just a small hobby, so my batches are very small and if this little experiment is a disaster it won't be a big deal - just a little waste of lavender, but then I think she's only growing the plants for fun anyhow. Oh, and I will mention that I do not know what variety of lavender she's growing, if that makes any difference. Thanks in advance for any thoughts!
