Honey BeeSoap –8/16/11 — Home Spa

I just made Honey BeeSoap today.  I love this bee skep mold!

I used a glycerin soap base and added honey and a drop or two of molasses (for coloring).  Then I wrapped them up.  Then, they looked a little boring in their wrapping, so I unwrapped them.

I went to Hobby Lobby looking for stickers of bees and couldn’t find any that looked right. Then I found these little buttons — and they’re perfect.

    I love your beehive soap and wanted to make a few as Christmas presents to go along with my Honey. Do you mind sharing where you bought your mold and How much glycerin-honey molasses proportions. Thank You kindly 🙂

    Wendy — so glad you have your own honey! Hopefully I’ll have some this year too. I got the mold (a candle mold) from Mann Lake. I’m not sure where I got this particular glycerin base — check Hobby Lobby, Michaels, etc. or go online. In each soap I’ve put approximately 1/2 tsp honey, and just enough molasses to color the final soap. Wish I could be more specific. It’s best to melt just enough soap base for your mold (there are 3 skeps in this mold) and then add about 1 1/2 tsp honey. Honey is very sticky, so it’s not going to be exact. The honey will color the soap slightly, then add tiny amounts of molasses and stir it in completely before adding more. I dipped a small spoon in the molasses, then stirred it into the soap. Probably less than 1/2 a tsp molasses for all three, but I think you’ll just have to experiment. Have fun!
