Make Your Own Dried Flower Soap Spheres

April 13, 2017   /   bySavannah Wallace  / Categories :  Feeds

Ever since I came across these sphere silicone molds for ice cubes, I knew I had to try using them for soap! I rarely see spherical soaps anywhere, so I love how interesting and unique these look!

They are incredibly easy to make. I made mine in 30 minutes while my kiddos where down for their nap. ? Did I mention they smell delightful? Because they do!
Supplies:
sphere silicone mold
-essential oils
clear melt and pour soap
dried flowers

Step One: Add in your preferred dried flowers to the bottom of your mold and set aside. I love the selection I found here. I thought the lavender buds turned out the best in the soaps!
Step Two: Melt down 1/4 of your clear melt and pour soap. To do this, I chopped them into small cubes and put them in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time until everything was a liquid.

Step Three: Add in your essential oils! I used lavender and a beautiful citrus blend. You’ll want to add between 20-25 drops of each so your soaps are fragrant enough. Stir your melted soap and essential oils together. Work quickly so your soap stays hot and easy to pour.
Step Four: Carefully pour your soap mixture into the mold. Fill your mold 3/4 of the way to the brim so that the soap fills the entire spherical mold once you put on the top. Since I needed just a little bit more soap, I used a syringe to top it off as seen in the picture.

Step Five: Let your soaps sit overnight. Once you take it out of the mold, you’ll have to carefully carve out any imperfections. I used a butter knife and it worked beautifully!
Store in your bathroom or give as a beautiful springtime gift! I love how the lavender and citrus combine to give you both a soothing and uplifting smell! Enjoy, my friends. Lots of love, Sav.

EBONY TEES AND SEAMLY CARDI IN MERINO JERSEY

This was my second year as a counselor at Camp Workroom Social and I was determined to be smarter in the wardrobe department than I was last year. I wanted clothing that was practical, stylish, comfy and interchangable. I already knew that I was bringing one pair of shoes (some back lace up boots which were much better than the heeled ones I wore last year) so everything needed to go with those and jeans. My color palette would be black (no surprise there), gray, white, blue, and camel. These really are the colors I wear all year long anyways. I am such a sucker for neutrals. This gave me the perfect excuse to sew up a few new things. After thinking about the criteria above, I settled on the Ebony tee in the cropped length and the Seamly Wrapped Cardigan which I had sewn up last year and loved. As for fabric choice, that was easy. I loved working with the merino wool jersey last year from The Fabric Store. They carry the perfect colors for my taste, plus the merino jersey feels so luxurious while still being washable. The perfect fall fabric in my book. I ended up […]
