Chamomile buds are here to help you make lots of chamomile tea for your soaps. Shaving soaps or baby soaps do really well with infusions made from chamomile buds. The tiny flowers can be placed in a glass or pitcher. Then hot water (near boiling but not quite) is poured over the top to a level about 4 to 8 times the volume of the buds. Allow the water to cool, strain through a knee-high nylon stocking and you are now ready to make your soap. A pretty simple procedure, isn't it?
If you aren't sure what the benefit will be to your soaps then try two soaps, one made exclusively with water and the other with chamomile tea (or infusion). I think you will like the chamomile soaps the best.
Matricaria recutita is the Latin name for this plant.
A Decadent Flavor
Cheesecake Flavor Oil
Oohh la la! Can you say decadent? I love pairing Cheesecake with almost any other flavor to make lip balms that fly out of shipping by popular demand. I love my batch of Ultimate Tiramisu Lip Balm and I'm sad that I'm almost out. That being said, I can't wait to try mixing Cheesecake with our new Blueberry Flavor!
French Lime Blossom Fragrance
This soft floral is truly enjoyable. My favorite products where I would use this fragrance are hair care and moisturizers! I may not be a heavy floral fan, but this delicate floral fragrance has started to convert me. I think French Lime Blossom should be a staple in your stash.
