Soap making has become quite a hobby of mine. I enjoying mixing different scent and color combinations, and I also like adding in fun things, like dried rose petals. They really make this coconut rose petal soap look beautiful! I added some rose fragrance oil to give it that lovely scent too! *This post contains affiliate links.
This coconut rose petal soap is super easy to maker, even for a beginner. Trust me, I was a beginner just two months ago! The trick is to use a melt and pour soap base, because it’s simple to use and you won’t have to work with lye. One day, I may try the cold process soap making, but for now, I’ll just stick to what is easy!
coconut rose petal soap
This recipe makes 5 bars of coconut rose petal soap if you use the same mold. I would recommend it, so that you get the same look of the rose petals on top. If you use some of the other soap molds that I have featured in any of my soap recipes, the rose petals will just float to the top, which is actually the bottom, in some of those molds.

- dried rose petals (crumbled)
- 10 drops rose fragrance oil

- Silicone soap mold
