Add rosebuds and petals to your soap for a beautiful effect. Use the basic recipe, left, and replace the water with rosewater (see page 34 for DIY instructions) and lemon oil with rose geranium essential oil. Or use a shea butter or goat’s milk melt-and-pour soap base. After pouring into a soap mould, gently push dried rose buds onto the top of the soap and leave to dry.
