I cannot believe it is already spring! I was taking the dog for a walk this morning and it was gorgeous outside. The temperature was in the low 60’s, the daffodils are standing tall and the birds are singing in the trees. This is absolutely my favorite time of the year. How about you? It is time to get those winter clothes into storage and bring the spring/summer wardrobe out!
When Caitlin and I were getting our warm weather clothes out of storage, a thought occurred to me. My skin will be showing!! But my skin is still kind of dry and wintry looking! But, no fear! All I need to do is get it into springtime shape! That means doing some exfoliating and moisturizing! The solution? My Easy DIY Rosemary Vanilla Essential Oil Soap!
I love this Easy DIY Rosemary Vanilla Essential Soaps recipe! It is so easy and inexpensive to make. And it is so much better than any store bought soap you can get! I love a soap recipe with herbs and essential oils, don’t you? The dried rosemary exfoliates your skin and the vanilla and goats milk soap base makes your skin super soft!

Easy DIY Rosemary Vanilla Essential Oil Soap Recipe
Step 1: Chop rosemary into fine pieces and set aside.
Step 2: Cut the goat’s milk soap base and place into a microwave safe bowl.
Step 3: Heat at 30 second intervals until soap is melted.
Step 4: Add vanilla extract to the bowl.
Step 5: Add rosemary essential oil to the bowl and blend well.
Step 6: Spray bottom of the mold with rubbing alcohol. This gets rid of the bubbles on the bottom, which will become your top!
Step 7: Add chopped rosemary to bottom of the mold.
Step 8: Gently pour soap mixture into mold.
Step 8: Spray the top of the soap with the rubbing alcohol. This gets rid of the bubbles on the top, which will become your bottom! Allow to harden for at least an hour. Gently pop out and store in an airtight container or ziplock bag until ready to use.
I am so excited for you to try this Easy DIY Rosemary Vanilla Essential Soaps recipe! The kids and I made these on a Saturday afternoon. It was so easy and fun to make together. This is a craft that you can make with kids of any age. The younger kids can help with sprinkling the rosemary into the mold or spraying the alcohol. The middle age kids can help with poring the soaps into the mold and popping them out. Older kids can almost make this recipe on their own.
