Dandy DIY – Herby Soap
If you’ve got a herb patch thriving in your garden why not turn your hand to our cheats easy scented soaps?!
Take your herbs and dry them out – just trim the stems, wrap with a bit of twine and hang them up in a sunny, dry spot until they’ve dried out.
Remove the flowers/petals/leaves once dried out.
Take a bar of natural glycerine soap and melt in the microwave.
Mix in your herbs of choice and, if available, a drop or two of essential oil – this isn’t necessary it just gives you more of an oomph to your scent.
Pour the herby soap into whatever shape dish you want your soap to be – line the bowl with cling-film first so it’s easy to get out.
Pop your finished soap into the fridge until it’s set and then you’re good to go!
Lemon and Mint (add in a squeeze of fresh lemon juice with your mint.
Rosemary and Thyme.
PRO TIP – you can do the same thing to make your own candles by melting down plain tea-lights and reserving the wicks.
