Floral Soaps

Floral Soaps

Could I make a floral or fruit-scented soap via your hand-milled recipe? How would I go about that?


You need to mill the soap, melt it down and then after that you can add any additional essential oils here or even dried flowers such as dried rose petals, lavender or calendula flowers for example.

Just remember that the petals or flowers that you add are thoroughly dry before adding them to your soap.

Anything really can be added to your milled soaps the sky is the limit. If you want a yellowish soap then add calendula flowers. If you want a brown soap then add some cocoa powder to the soap, adding paprika will give you a red-brick soap.

Get the idea? It is fun to experiment like this and after you have a couple of goes you will soon find out how much you want to add and what you want to add to your milled soaps to give them your unique stamp of creativity.

There is nothing like homemade soap in any form. I never buy commercial soap any more. I make all my soap using olive oil and love the way it leaves my skin feeling.

All the best and happy experimenting!
