What you need

Silk Flower Petals
Melted Soap Mix


Start by making up some Melt and Pour Soap base choosing your favourite soap recipe.

Then while the soap is still melted, wearing a pair of heat resistant gloves or using metal tongs dip the petals into the soap mix.

Once it is well coated pull it out and pop it down into some wax proof paper to dry.

Do this working in batches. This way you don’t over fill your pan with petals.

To use: Simply take 1-2 petals, rub your hands under water and use it like you would use soap. Either discard or pop into hot water later for washing and reusing.
