Soap Recipe - Sweet Citrus Honey.

A sweet citrus honey soap recipe.

This 'honeycomb' soap recipe uses bubblewrap to create the fun look.

By combining beeswax, honey and sweet citrus scents you end up with a soap that is warm and inviting. Makes me feel like having tea and honey cakes.

For basic instructions on how to make homemade soap, read The Process page and then follow the directions below to make Sweet Citus Honey soap.
  • Prepare the soap mold by placing a cut out of bubblewrap on the bottom of the mold with the bubbles facing up. Cut another piece to place on top of the poured soap.

  • Melt the beeswax with the hard oils. At this point I added the honey, orris root and ground calendula petals.

  • Make the soap as usual following the directions on the Process Page.

  • Add the essential oils when the soap is at a light trace.

  • Pour the soap into the prepared mold when a medium trace is reached. Top with the remaining piece of bubblewrap and press gently into the soap.

  • Put the soap to rest as usual and cut when cooled.

  • Congradulations, Your Done!
