Ozone Rose Soap

Ozone Rose Soap

Please note: When you make a cold process soap it is a very dangerous process. You must wear protective gear such as a long sleeve shirt, rubber gloves, protective eyewear & an apron. When handling lye you must be extra cautious not just when its active but when you're washing your bowls with leftover soap as well. 


12.5 oz olive oil

12.5 oz ozonated coconut oil

2.5 oz castor oil

2.5 oz shea butter

4.13 oz lye

1.5 cups of water

1/4th cup rose petals plus more for on top of the bar

10 drops of rose geranium essential oil

10 drops of frankincense essential oil



1. Prepare a "rose tea" with the rose petals and hot water. Cool to a room temperature. Then strain the tea and measure out 10 oz by weight for the water base of the soap. 


2.  Prepare your lye solution by measuring it out then carefully pouring the lye granules into the rose tea. After working with your lye, wipe up your area with a paper towel dampened with vinegar to clean and neutralize any stray lye granules. Your lye solution will super heat to near boiling point and may discolor (its normal). Cool in a safe place and secure spot until the lye solution is about 90-110 degrees F. 


3. Meanwhile, combine the oil and butters. Warm until blended then cool to 90-110 degrees F. 


4. When both mixtures are cooled to 90-110 degrees F, slowly pour the lye solution into the oil, using a stick blender to emulsify. Make sure the stick blender stays below the mixture to avoid splatter. Within a couple of minutes, the mixture will reach a "trace" stage when an instrument dragged through the mixture leaves an impression before settling in. Add essential oils at this time and blend thoroughly. 


5. Quickly pour into a silicone mold. Smooth top with a rubber spatula and gently press dried rose petals into the surface if desired. Cool in a safe spot for 24-36 hours then unmold and cut. 


6. Cure the cut soap in a single layer, turning daily for three to six weeks. When properly cured the soap will be gentle and non-drying.
