sixteen sprigs a penny
that you’ll find my ladies
will smell as sweet as any"
Lavender Sellers’s Cry, London England CA 1900
I hope you are enjoying the start to the weekend.
Wednesday I decided to have a go at making soap. I had everything I needed to make it. Some Caustic Soda, Olive Oil, Copha and Rainwater. It worked.
Here it is just after I poured the mixture into a lined baking dish. I had some dried lavender on hand. I used lavender heads from my Oiling Grosso Lavender, When the Lavender was put on top of the soap mix the heads greened up again until they dried.
When I make the next batch I will add some lavender etc to the mix. This time I just wanted to make sure it worked.
