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!
