BEST BUD

NZ Gardener - Gifts from the Gardens - - Natural Gifts -

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.
