The Easiest Homemade Almond Rose Soap Recipe (No Lye!)

Since I’ve rediscovered soap flakes, I’ve leveled up in my cleansing game.This is a simple soap making method, that doesn’t require too much effort, but the end result is awesometastic. The almonds gently exfoliate, while the rose petals soothe and calm irritated skin. I absolutely love this combination and you will too! It’s gentle enough to incorporate into your facial care routine, and you can follow it up with my favorite rose water toner.
