I was going through some of my soap pictures and realised that i had forgot to put up pictures of my 'Rose Soap'.
When i make rose soaps i naturally think of simple and classic designs and recipes. I usually like to keep them just as 'Rose soap' with not too much other scents or colourings added....i honestly don't know why, its just a personal preference ( i also make a rustic rose soap with a lovely woody scent, i have blogged on this soap before)
I wanted to achieve a really vintage look for this soap apart from rustic and natural, so i used a shea butter recipe and added the tiniest amount of pink clay to give a faint pink colour which i love. I didn't want the soap to be pink or white/cream so this really pale pink colour looks perfect against the pink rose petals. I scattered rose petals on top of the soap purely for the decorative effect and exfoliating properties.
Overall i achieved what i was aiming to produce, a lovely creamy soap which reminds me of a vintage english rose garden !!
I have 5 'Rose Soaps' remaining in my folksy shop, so if you would like one of these lovely soaps please come and visit my shop www.bobbinsandbalms.folksy.com
