Thai soap flowers are carved from scented soap and are available as souvenirs throughout Thailand. The practice of carving soap began as a hobby, but the carvers found a market with tourists and began selling their beautiful and realistic soap flower carvings in the marketplace.

Real, usable soap is used to create Thai soap flowers, so in theory, you could wash your hands with the delicate flowers, but I think you'd have to be desperately dirty to use the little works of art for that!
