I don't know how I happened upon this recipe, but of course all things Martha Stewart look so gorgeous and so easy, so I thought, I can do this.
I had some orange zest in the fridge which I was going to use in either biscotti or soap. Seeing how I didn't have enough eggs for biscotti, it went in the soap instead.
I decided to add some dried lavender into the mix as well for some colour contrast and a nice smell. Plus, I'm not much for using it in cooking, so what better place for it to end up than in some soap.
The first of the two soaps I poured ended up with way more of the orange and lavender on the bottom of the soap.
I'll know next time to spoon the soap into the mold so that it gets more evenly distributed. However, this meant the second pour came out much better.
