Wouldn’t you love to get away to a private island where you could enjoy the sounds and smells?
Maybe you can’t escape reality to your own private island, but how about using this Island Rose Soap Recipe.
At least you’ll be able to enjoy the smells as if you are surrounded by flowers blooming by the water while you’re sipping on a pina colada.
Doesn’t that sound like heaven? We could all use a tropical drink in our life, just make sure it has a little umbrella.
I think we could all use a little island get-away. Even it’s just pretending, I’m happy to go to my island to escape a bit of the day-to-day craziness of life with kids.
This Coconut Rose Soap is so unique because it uses actual rose petals. The mixture of rose and coconut will have your mind drifting away to a tropical place that will relieve stress. So go ahead, make up a batch and enjoy a little stress relief.
We used the melt and pour soap technique for this. It is actually good for all skin types!
