Rose Petal Soap




                       I wanted to give Princess Pea a spa day ; but was not comfortable in taking her to actual spa . She is too young to go to a spa . So why not bring the spa to home ? Again I don't want to introduce her to new chemicals . That lead to make the rose petal soap . Roses make me feel royal . So why not make my princess feel the royalty . To give a special touch to it I used silicone muffin molds to make soap so they  fit easily in her small hands and the soap looks special too .

Things we need :-

The soap base
2 Tbsp Shea butter
2 Tbsp Heavy cream
2 Tbsp Rose essence 
Couple of drops of pink color
2 Tbsp dried rose flowers

 To proceed :-

Melt the soap base in the microwave according to the directions on the package  .
Add the rest of the ingredients in order and stir well .
Pour in the muffin molds .
Wait for around 40 mins and unmold the soaps .

       My soap has bubbles on the surface . I did not have the rubbing alcohol at home . But after pouring the soaps in molds, spray some rubbing alcohol on them to get rid of the bubbles and have a smooth surface .

They look so adorable and perfect for a spa day at home. I tried with cream and turmeric for this batch and must say they not only feel good, but pale yellow brings good smiles to.
Love Ash.
