In Spring when the roses bloom one of the things that the Nerdy Farmwife makes is Rosa Rugosa soap. She shares her recipe in this post. If you don’t have fresh rose petals available, she cautions to avoid roses from the florist or grocery store. It’s likely they’ve been treated with pesticides. You’ll need organic rose petals.
Use a local grower who has organic rose petals or buy from a respected grower like Mountain Rose Herbs. Click on the Rosa Rugosa Soap Recipe link below to read the Nerdy Farmwife’s full recipe.
