Why make your own soap at home? For many reasons:
Protect your skin from all the chemicals that may harm your skin.
Customize your soap's size, color and smell.
Homemade soaps are great gifts for your dear ones, and make great giveaways at your henna or bachelorette party!
2 tablespoons dried red rose petals
235 g pure soap flakes
2/3 cup boiling water
1/2 cup rose water
2 tablespoons ground almonds
9 drops of your favorite essential oil
Pound the rose petals with a mortar and pestle. In a large bowl, combine the ground petals, soap and water and stir until smooth. If the soap starts to solidify, place the bowl over near-boiling water.
Stir in the rose water and ground almonds. Allow to cool. Add the essential oil.
Shape mixture into six balls and flatten them slightly. Allow the soap to harden between sheets of wax paper. Keep unused soap in a cool, dark place until needed.
