Make Your Own Dried Flower Soap Spheres

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.

  • I love the idea of a lavender & citrus soap! If I was to use a shea butter base melt and pour soap base, would you still recommend the same ration of about 20-25 drops of both essential oils? I haven’t made my own soap before, and I wondering if you need to cautious about skin irritation if you use too many drops of the oils? Thanks!

  • These pics make me feel the perfume. If a photo is made for the eyes, yours are thought to be touched, smelled, seen, made love with.
