To decorate

  • Dried flower petals***


  1. Use the basic soap making instructions along with these additional steps specific to this recipe. Soaping temperature 38°
  2. Mix the clay and water before you begin making soap. Add it to the melted oils by pouring through a sieve/strainer. Cosmetic clays come in a range of colours including blue, green, pink, and brown
  3. You may use a maximum of 3 tsp of essential oil in your soap, choosing from these scents: chamomile, lavender, neroli, palmarosa, rose geranium or ylang-ylang.
  4. Dried flowers are a pretty way to decorate handmade soap but unfortunately, they can turn brown on contact. Calendula petals will stay yellow but for others there are two options. You can lightly sprinkle them on once the soap has firmed up slightly. The parts that do not come into contact with the soap will stay coloured, at least for a while.

The other option is to wait until your soap is fully cured. After the 28-day waiting period, spray the areas you want flowers on your soap with witch hazel or denatured alcohol. Sprinkle the dried flowers on top and wait for the alcohol to dry. When it is fully dry, the flowers will be adhered to the soap. Decorate your soap with rose petals, lavender buds, calendula petals, dried chamomile, and other skin-safe dried flowers and leaves.
