I'm going to consult the forum before my next "oh let's try that!" experiment, seeing that I thought lavender buds would hold up in CP soap. I cannot seem to find any threads that answer my question. So the hubs got me beautiful roses for Valentine's Day. They are beginning to droop because I'm horrible with keeping cut flowers looking fresh. I was thinking about drying the petals and making some infused oil use in my lotion bars (currently have chamomile steeping for that purpose). Will I regret trying to CP with dried rose petals? I was thinking about drying them and grinding into a powder, and adding at trace. After the lavender buds experiment (and why I didn't search this forum before hand is beyond me), I don't want any more mouse dropping soap, so if I at least grind them I should get brown specked soaps, right?
