Yields: 3-6 Roses per 200gr soap (Depending how large the roses you make are)
- 200-400gr melt and pour soap (clear or white works, but will give you different outcomes)
- Liquid Krazy Dye (Diva pink, Cherry Red) 4-8 drops until desired colour achieved
- Red Winter Rose Fragrance Oil (Use any oil you like!)
What you need:
- Glass Measuring Cups
- Pipette for dropping fragrance and liquid dye (If you dont have this, use a teaspoon to assist in adding your liquids to melted soap)
- Parchment Paper
- Spoon, or large popsicle stick
- Melt 100-200gr melt and pour soap in microwave in 30 second burst.
- Once fully melted, add 5-10 drops fragrance oil, add 2-6 drops liquid Krazy Dye
- Use popsicle stick or spoon to create petals on the parchment paper
- Make organic petal shapes, round, oval and triangular are all great.
- Let soap sit for 1-2 min until hardened.
- Begin to create flower by rolling one piece of soap tightly to create inner part of rose.
- Continue to build and add more petals. To adhere the petals together use the warmth of your fingers to press the petals into each other.
- We recommend pinching the flower into a "V" shape as you go, to help maintain a natural rose shape.
- Creating thinner petals helped when forming the flowers.
- Be patient! It may take a few practice flowers to get in the groove.
- Build upward on your flower so the center of your flower doesn't poke out too much,
- Remember, every flower is different!

Make petals by smearing melted soap onto parchment paper. We found the thinner the soap, the easier to manipulate when building your rose.
