Milky Rose Soap Bar
Recipe of the Month - November, 2006
Goats Milk is very beneficial to
your skin to help make it smooth, supple and relieve dry skin. These
are just a few benefits from Goats Milk!
Rose has long been used for is properties to help deter the effects of
aging on your skin.
What you need:
Glass Measuring cup
Mold of your choice
1/4 C. Freshly picked or dried rose
petals, the more fragrant the better
16oz Clear M&P Soap base
1/8th Cup Goats Milk, may use
buttermilk or other milk of choice
1/2 - 1 tsp Rose Petals Fragrance
Alcohol in spray bottle
Add 16 oz or 1 lb. of Clear M&P Soap
base into your measuring cup.
Melt your soap in the microwave at
10-20 sec intervals, stirring between each time, do not allow to boil.
Add your rose petals and stir well.
The hot soap will help "steep" the petals and allow them to release
their beneficial properties.
Add your milk and stir well. If the
milk causes your soap to cool too much after adding, forming a skin on
your base, place back in microwave for 5-10 seconds.
Add fragrance oil, stir well and
pour into your molds.
Spritz on your alcohol and allow
soap to set up, approximately 30-40 minutes.
Package in cello bags with a few
faux rose petals for a very nice look.
