Rose Soap Leaves

A little mid-winter pick-me-up to remind us that spring is around the corner.

Rose Soap Petals

~Rose petals from silk roses (You can buy them already cut, or cut the petals off from the flowers yourself)
~Melt and Pour clear glycerine soap (available at most craft stores)
~Fragrance oil (optional)

Cut 6 ounces of soap into 1" chunks.

Place soap chunks into microwave safe container and melt according to package instructions.  Mine took about 1 minute. Stir in a few drops of fragrance oil, if desired.

Use tweezers to dip rose petals into melted soap.

Let soap drip off petal and then place on waxed paper or parchment paper to dry.

When leaves are cool, peel off from paper. 

To Use:
Use one petal to wash hands.  There is just enough soap on each petal to get your hands nice and clean.  Dispose of used petal or save to be coated and re-used again.

*These make a great favor for baby or bridal showers.

*Keep a few leaves in a baggie in your purse to have on hand in case someplace is out ( many public restrooms never seem to have soap).

*Tuck a package of these in a gift basket for a new mom or sick friend.

Those are so pretty-and you're right, they would make perfect shower favors. I have a bag of 300 petals ($1 at the dollar tree) that have been waiting for a cool project--this may be a winner!

Tristan, that is a great deal on rose petals. You could make a ton of gifts with that many and still have leftovers!

A mix оf the best peel or exfolіation combined with right miхture of skіn lightening agеnts
can effеctively lighten the most difficult spots of hyperρigmentation.
Hot water drіeѕ and iгritates skin, ѕo the cοoler the
watеr, the better. This ωill neeԁ more thаn a
single remeԁу and can be pricey.
