Surprising Soap Deco Supply Shop

Dried leaves and flower petals for making teaThe next time I want to get my supply of dried flowers to adorn my soap, I’m *not* going to order it online from a specialty skincare store. Let me tell you what I’ll do instead.

I’m going to head over to my neighbourhood *yok choi poh* (chinese medicine hall) and ask the friendly uncle behind the counter to show me the nicest flower bud teas he has. 😀

This morning I happened to find a parking spot right outside the *yok choi poh* when I went to do my marketing. After getting my groceries, I kinda wandered into the shop and asked the uncle (I **have** to find out his name) if he had any rose buds in stock.

And what beautiful dried rose buds they were! Each one was a deep, purpley red, without any yellowing on the fringes of its petals. For under RM10 I could walk out of the shop with a 100g bag of rose buds, which is a LOT for my use. Ooh, I wonder what other flowers uncle has!

Can’t wait to see how they look in future soap batches. 8->

  1. Have you been to the tea and coffee aisle in the supermarket? If they sell exotic tea, they should sell a lot of other flower teas as well. Over here, I see chamomile buds, rose buds and other buds that I don’t recognize. Maybe you should give it a try too?

    I guess, perhaps the medicine store has more options :).

  2. Oh, that’s a good idea, didn’t think of that! 🙂 Will have a browse of the tea aisle the next time I go to the supermarket to see what they’ve got. Thanks for the tip!

  3. Any discounts for buying more than 1 soap?

    1. Hi Ann, I’m afraid I’m not running any official price promotions at the moment, but I do consider bulk purchases on a case by case basis with regards to discounts. Do call or e-mail me if you intend to buy lots and we’ll see if we can work something out. 🙂
