  1. I have made the rose petal soaps before and it was fun..I had 1 lady order 1,000 of them and another lady ordered 125 of them….I also use them as gifts when I sell something I would put a few soap petals in small plastic bag and send them as a Thank you gift 🙂

  2. What a terrific idea! Im going to try this … even though I have absolutely no experience making soap. Sounds like fun! Nancy, if you happen to be reading this, what kind of price did you use for selling the petal soaps? Im thinking 1,000 petals could bring in some pretty good cash! o)
