  1. This is so awesome! I truly love making my own melt and pour soap, but have never tried using calendula in it. Honestly I had no idea there’s even a calendula essential oil. Thanks so very much for sharing this great DIY.

  2. The only time I have made soap was with lye. Actually, my friend made it while I watched!! I could actually make the recipe you have! It looks much easier! Pinned!

      1. So glad you joined us!! I hope to see you at the party often! Thank you for sharing at My Big Fat Menopausal Life’s Share the Wealth Link party! Have an awesome weekend.
