Jewelweed Soap Additive Mixture


  • 1 cup jewelweed leaves, stems, and flowers finely chopped
  • ½ cup lavender finely chopped or 3 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped plantain
  • 8 ounces coconut oil if your soap base recipe does not already call for it


  • Combine the jewelweed and the plantain in a bowl with just enough to cover them and stir thoroughly to combine.
  • Allow the mixture to settle overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Strain away the plant parts and keep the juice - which will be a brownish green shade in color.
  • Combine the mixture and all other additives noted above into your favorite soap base recipe, and follow its instructions for completion and use.
