Special Ingredients2 teaspoons sodium lactate, ½ oz. dried rose petals (buds and stems removed), 1 teaspoon Moroccan red clay powder, ½ oz. saffron and honey fragrance oil.
Combine all oils. Add the sodium lactate to the cooled lye water mixture. Add the lye water to the oils and bring to a very light trace. Add the red clay powder and fragrance oils, blending well. Hand stir in the rose petals. Pour the mixture into the soap mold.
The saffron and honey fragrance oil is a mellow sweet smell. It is described as a “cardamom, clover, musk and honey rounded out with smooth, milky notes”. I got it as a sampler with some other fragrances and thought it would pair well with the roses as very light scent in the soap.
