Thank you.
So to use only "natural" products, I need to add something beside lavender to make lavender soap? (I got your message in the other post about lavender buds turning into "mouse poop" is there a way to treat it so that doesn't happen? If I just sprinkle it on top for decoration will that still turn? I had planned to mix a little in for exfoliation, but not if it's going to look awful.

There is no need to add anything to the Lavender oil to use it in soap. I just posted a few to show you what is available and how they work in soap. There are other varieties of natural Lavenders that can be used in soap with no problems.

There is nothing that I know of to prevent the lavender buds from turning brown. They oxidize.

But I thought lavender was a "top note" and therefore doesn't "stick" very well??

Lavender is top to middle. I make Lavender oil soap and it sticks.

Does anyone experienced DOS problems with Lavender Soap? I noticed my soap with Lavender essential oil develops pretty quickly DOS whenever other soaps with the same base oils stay fine.
