Honey Oatmeal Soap Recipe

Honey Oatmeal Soap

Made a wonderful soap the other day using my honey oatmeal soap recipe in one of our new acrylic slab soap molds.  It was a ton of fun!  Click here to see a full recipe tutorial on how to make it yourself!

The key to making a honey soap successfully is to keep the batch cool.  Honey is made up of approximately 20% sugar.  Sugar will cause your soap to heat up more than normal.  If this heat is allowed to build, it may “over-heat” causing cosmetic flaws in your finished product.  You don’t want that to happen! 

Do not put the lid on your mold when making a honey soap.  Do not insulate with towels.  In fact, if needed, you really could put the entire batch in your freezer after it is poured into the mold to ensure that it stays cool.

Have fun making your very own honey oatmeal soap and be sure to share your results in the talk soap forum!

    Why do you add almond milk as well. Is honey not stable or something without this addition?

      Hi Charlotte! I just like the way almond milk feels in soap. Nothing to do really with stabling honey or anything like that. Have you ever soaped almond milk? It is lovely!

    I used goats milk in place of the water in the Almond Milk. My soap is oozing oil. But it looks like yours is too in your picture. Is it normal? Could it be the use of the goats milk? I also got a layer on the top that almost looks like skin. Could this be from getting too warm? I love the color of the soap!
