Easy DIY Soap Roses

DIY soap roses are very simple to make and can be used to decorate bath salts and bombs. With the same method, you can also create delicate soap petals.
This is a simple "melt and pour" method that anyone can try at home. Are you ready? Let's start creating your own beautiful and fragrant DIY soap roses!

Materials needed for making DIY soap roses:

  • 100g of melt and pour glycerin soap or a glycerin soap bar
  • One round cookie cutter
  • 10-20 drops of cosmetic fragrance (optional)
  • 1 or 2 drops of natural soap dye (optional)

How to make soap roses:

  • Start by cutting 100 g of melt & pour soap into small pieces.

  • You can melt it using a double boiler in a glass container. If you don't have a double boiler, don't worry! You can also microwave it. Just put it in the microwave for 30 seconds at maximum power, then stir it. If necessary, you can melt it again for 10 seconds.

  • Now it's time to customize your soap. If you want your soap roses to have color and a pleasant scent, quickly add the cosmetic fragrance and the soap dye. This will give your soap roses a unique appearance and a delightful aroma.

  • Once your soap is melted and customized, stir it well.

  • Then, pour it inside a plastic tray. Leave it for a while to allow it to solidify (it’s going to be quick, don’t worry!).

  • After your soap has solidified, it's time to create your DIY soap roses. Take a round cookie cutter and gently scrape the surface of the soap. Keep scraping without stopping, and you'll see the roses forming automatically!

Yes, it's that simple. You'll be amazed at how beautiful your soap roses look!

How to make single rose petals:

  • To make single soap rose petals, simply follow the same procedure outlined above, but stop a little bit before when scraping.

I hope this simple method will inspire you to create your own soap roses to decorate your bath salts and more. They can make a great gift for someone special or a lovely addition to your bathroom decor.
