Rose Melt And Pour Soap Recipe

Rose-Melt-And-Pour-Soap-Recipe.jpg

To make this rose melt and pour soap recipe, you need a clear soap base, dried rose petals, some carrier oil, and essential oils for fragrance.

The soap base I used is not as clear as I’d like, but you can buy a better one.

Also, I thought infusing the rose petals in the soap base would give me pink soap.

Instead, I had a green soap, which is not bad.

Since my soap was colored naturally instead of using soap dyes.

But that’s what happens with DIY skincare recipes – you learn as you go.

With all that out of the way, this soap turned out fine, and I even had a shower with it.

So let me show you how to make a rose melt and pour soap at home.

  • First, set your soap mold on a cookie tray or chopping board.
  • Then boil 5 cups of water in an electric kettle and pour it into your pot on a stove. (This step speeds up the melting process of the soap base).
  • Next, chop the soap base into cubes and add them to your pyrex measuring cup.
  • Then sit the pyrex cup with soap cubes in the pot of boiling water and melt the soap slowly.
  • When the soap starts melting, add the rose petals, coconut oil, and vanilla extract, and stir with a spatula.

  • Keep occasionally stirring until the soap is completely melted and green.
  • Next, hold the cup sieve over the soap mold and pour the melted soap into every mold.
  • You need to be fast because the soap starts cooling as soon as you remove it from the hot water.
  • After filling every mold, place the soap mold in the fridge for some hours.

  • After two to three hours, your DIY rose melt and pour soap will be solid and ready to take out of the mold.

  • Enjoy!

Things to know when making this DIY rose soap

While heating your soap base in the microwave is faster, I prefer heating it in hot water.

Because hot water melts the soap without directly heating it and making it hot.

So even when the soap is completely melted, it is warm, not hot to the touch – which lessens any burn risks.

Also, the only time I melted soap in the microwave, it hardened as soon as it came out.

It might be because it was Dove soap, not a soap base.

Also, you must note that adding rose petals to melt and pouring soap changes the color from clear to green.

So if you don’t want your soap to turn green, melt the soap base with the carrier and essential oils.

Then add the rose petals to the mold and pour the melted soap.

This should keep your rose soap clear but decorated with pink rose petals.

That should look cute.

Also, you can use rose essential oil instead of lavender.

I was going for a rose vanilla fragrance.

But I added lavender essential oil to my rose soap recipe because I love lavender.

I guess I’ll make a rose vanilla melt and pour soap next time.

I used this DIY rose soap.

This rose melt-and-pour soap lathered well, even with coconut oil in the recipe.

I saw a video where someone added so much coconut oil to the soap base, and the finished product didn’t lather.

So make sure not to use too much oil when making melt and pour soap.

Also, this homemade rose soap rinses off easily, so you can clean your body with less water.

But this also means the soap isn’t as moisturizing as store-bought soaps.

So make sure to moisturize your body immediately after showering with this rose melt-and-pour soap.

Another thing I noticed is that the soap has a light natural rose fragrance.

And the lavender and vanilla fragrance isn’t too pronounced, which I think I like.

All in all, I like this homemade rose soap.
