~Home-made LAVENDER soap & BUTTER~
I made home made lavender soap with the girls and butter with the son that agreed to so it! :D I purchased goats milk soap base from Michael's. We melted it in the microwave and added lavender oil and tiny pieces of lavender. I then poured it into a foil lined loaf pan and let it cool. Once cooled I cut it and wrapped it in pretty packaging. I just tore up some tissue paper and used twine to tie on a prig of lavender.
To make the butter I poured some heavy cream into a jar with a marble and vigorously shook it until it separated. My son tried for a few minutes but apparetnly his arm got sore! I tried to squeeze out as much juice as I could and added some salt-it helps preserve it and adds a little flava flava! I will use the buttermilk left over for pancakes tomorrow morning! It is GOOD!
