Almond Rose Soap
Here’s a simple method of soap-making using just a few basic tools. You’ll create a fragrant soap that gently cleans.
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 geranium essential oil
1. 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.
2. Stir in the rose water and ground almonds. Allow to cool. Stir in the essential oil.
3. 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.
