Make Your Own Dried Flower Soap SpheresApril 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!
–sphere silicone mold
–clear melt and pour soap
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.
