Since I was making this soap as more of a decorative piece, I wasn’t initially going to add fragrance. You can leave this out if you’d like, however, I’m glad I decided to add a little floral fragrance to these soaps because it makes them all the more pretty and feminine.
I used the silicone rectangle soap mold to create individual soaps without having to cut them. I didn’t want to ruin the integrity of the petals by slicing bars, so this was a great choice. Using silicone soap molds makes unmolding soap SO easy! They pop right out!
Melt the soap base using a double boiler or similar setup over medium heat, or in the microwave using short bursts and stirring in between.
Remove the melted soap from the heat and stir in the fragrance oil. I lightly scented this soap using ½ teaspoon. You can adjust this amount if you want a stronger fragrance.
Gently fold the petals into the soap mixture. You can use 1/3- ½ cup of petals depending on how full you want each soap to be. I like a light speckling of petals throughout each bar- enough for you to see the petals but not so many that the bar looks overcrowded.
Scoop the mixture into each rectangle mold. This recipe yielded 6 bars, filling each opening to the top.
Lightly press one hibiscus pod into the corner of each soap for decoration.
Allow the soaps to harden and cool completely prior to removing from the molds.
Aren’t they pretty!?!
These little soaps will be the perfect spring décor for any bathroom. They’ll also make beautiful gifts!
