Mix and Match - Lavender Musk

What do you do with the little left over from every fragrance after you are done soaping it?  For some reason I just can't use up exactly what I purchased!  So what do you do with a little left over here and there?!  It's not enough to make even a smallest batch but enough to make me feel bad by throwing it in the trash.  I gathered a few left over lavender fragrances from different suppliers and thought maybe I should just mix them all together!  Different suppliers have their own interpretation of what lavender should smell like, some more herbal, some more floral, some with other notes.  To add another layer of depth, I added some Egyptian Musk which is way too light by itself.
This is my Lavender Musk:

Just thought I should make rope soap again, it has been awhile since my last one.  I rather prefer soap on a rope because you can wear it around your wrist to prevent slippery and dropping it in the shower, then hang it to dry much faster.  But why don't I make every soap on the rope?  Because it's more preparation work and I have to sacrifice fancy soap top. 


  1. Wow, it is really beautiful! The idea with a rope is rather interesting :)

  2. I love Lavender – and the colors you chose are so perfect for the project.

  3. Gorgeous soap! I often mix up left over dregs of FOs or even mix them with EOs - and sometimes I end up with something rather lovely. I recently mixed some Lavender EO with Marshmallow FO - that was really popular!

  4. Lovely design and I bet they smell great. These are the prettiest soap-on-a-rope I've ever seen!

  5. I like this idea! I have never done soap on a rope, but I think I will try!

  6. These are so pretty. I love how you have the ropes inserted
