5 Creative Ways to Use Rose Petals – Care2.com

Spring is finally here, and with it comes an abundance of fresh blooms. For green thumbs, spring is one of the most exciting times of the year… But even if you don’t garden yourself, there are lots of ways to use flower to freshen up both your air and your home decor. Rose petals are particularly classic, but there are more ways to use them than simply displaying them in a vase. Here are five of our favorite ideas.

DIY Rose Petal Soaps

DIY-Rose-Petals-Soap-Directions

This super easy DIY is perfect for those who want to display some fun colors without taking up a lot of space. Incorporate rose petals (or any petals, for that matter) into a homemade soap bar. This fun and functional project only requires an all-natural soap base, a soap mold, and essential oils. You can also use beet juice to turn the soaps a delightful shade of pink.
