Step 1:  Prepare your lye solution.  Allow the lye solution to cool to room temperature.  

Step 2:  While you are waiting for your lye solution to cool, prepare your soaping oils.  Once your oils are melted, allow them cool to room temperature.
Step 3:  While you are waiting for your oils and lye solution to cool, prepare the colorants.  
Step 4:  When both the soaping oils and the lye solution are ready to be combined, do so.  Then, stick blend the soap batter to emulsify.  Next, add the Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil.  Once again, stick blend your soap batter to incorporate the scent.  
Step 5:  Now, separate your soap batter.  At this time, you will need three mixing bowls.  Separate the soap batter equally into three bowls. Next, add one of your colorants to each bowl.  So, one bowl should be colored with the pink colorant, one with the cocoa powder colorant, another with the titanium dioxide.  Stick blend the contents of each bowl to incorporate each colorant.
Step 6:  Now, it is important to know before you begin pouring your soap, half of the white soap will need to be saved to top the soap at the end.  So, begin pouring small amounts of each color of the soap batter. Continue pouring the pink, brown, and some white soap batter until you have used all of the soap batter.  Set the remaining white batter aside to thicken a bit.
Step 7:  Next, you will need a rubber spatula.  Place your rubber spatula in the bowl. Then, move it in a circular motion around the bowl until you are happy with your swirls.

Step 8:  Pour the soap batter into two cavities of the 4-loaf silicone mold.
Step 9:  For this step, you will need the remaining white soap batter.  It needs to be at a thick consistency. Place the white soap batter on top of each loaf.  Create peaks in the white topping.
Step 10:  Lightly sprinkle the top of each loaf with the pink rose petals.  We used less than a gram total for both loaves.
Step 11:  After 48 hours, remove the soap from the mold.  When ready, cut the soap into squares.  Allow them to further cure before using.
