Remove the soap base from its container and then cut into small pieces into a microwave bowl.
Heat according to the package directions.
Add 10 drops of the essential oil.
To color the soap, add the soap colorant until you reach the desired shade of color. Be sure to mix it evenly.
Sprinkle the dried lavender petals into the soap mold.
Pour the melted soap into the molds and add more lavender petals if desired.
Allow the soap to set for 45 minutes.
Remove the soap from the mold and then package as desired.
Once the soap has melted, work as quickly as you can since the soap will begin to harden around the edge of the bowl.
If the soap begins to harden, then microwave for 10 seconds.
