How to make honey soap recipe melt and pour.  This cute honeycomb soap with bubble wrap is easy to make.


Winnie the Pooh is one of my favorite Disney movies, so I'm really excited to see the new Christopher Robin movie when it comes out in a few weeks.  Since I keep seeing Winnie the Pooh everywhere, I decided to make a melt and pour honey soap inspired by the new film.


Honey is a great natural additive for soap, but I also made the soap look like a honeycomb both in color and texture.  The technique that I used is so simple to do, too.  You can make this honey melt and pour soap recipe in about 15 minutes.

How Do You Make Honey Melt and Pour Soap?

I made honeycomb soap with bubble wrap for a fun effect.  


How Do You Stop Melt and Pour Soap From Sweating?


Using honey in a honey soap recipe melt and pour can make it more likely to sweat.  Be sure to wrap your melt and pour honey soap in plastic wrap.  Also be careful not to overheat your soap.





Soap Base


I used a regular clear melt and pour soap base for my honey soap recipe melt and pour, but you can use white.  You can use a shea butter soap, goat's milk soap, or any other kind that you'd like.


Honey



I used locally made raw honey for this melt and pour honey soap.  Honey naturally moisturizes your skin without making it oily, so this bar is great for your hands or body.

Carrier Oils


I added some grapeseed oil for a little more moisturizer for honey soap recipe melt and pour, but you can add your favorite carrier oil or even a nut butter like shea butter.  


If you do add a nut butter, you can add it after the soap has melted.  It should be hot enough to  melt it without microwaving it.

Fragrance


I didn't add any essential oils or fragrance oils for this melt and pour honey soap.  Normally, I like a little bit of a scent, but nothing seemed to really go well with the natural scent of honey soap recipe melt and pour.


They do make an oatmeal, milk, and honey fragrance oil that would work well though.





Molds


This honeycomb soap with bubble wrap technique for melt and pour soap is simple, but it gives you a really cool looking bar of soap.  


I like it because I can use my existing mold and not have to buy another mold.  My storage space is at a premium, so I stick with the basics for molds.


Speaking of molds, I really like this silicone mold from Amazon.  It's a great price, and it's flexible so it doesn't crack.  I had a plastic one that I used for years and years, but it finally cracked.  This one should last me quite a while.



Melt and Pour Honey Soap Ingredients


Melt and Pour Honey Soap Directions


STEP #1




Measure the bottom of the soap mold and cut the bubble wrap to fit.  You want it to fit fairly well, but it's best to have it slightly bigger than the bottom of the soap mold than too little.


Place the bubble wrap, bubble side up, on the bottom of your soap mold.


I've seen this technique done with the bubble wrap on the top of the bar to make honeycomb soap with bubble wrap.  I didn't get great results with this method.  You can try it, but this is how I prefer making honeycomb soap.



STEP #2


Cut the melt and pour soap into small chunks.  Use a digital scale to measure the soap.
Heat in the microwave on high for 30 second intervals, stirring at each interval, until completely melted.



STEP #3


When the soap is melted, add the raw honey and grapeseed oil.  Stir well to melt the honey and get it mixed well


I used raw honey that had crystallized.  Honey is absolutely fine if it crystallizes, but it doesn't look as pretty.  The way to make it pretty again is to put the honey jar in hot water. 


 By adding the honey to the hot soap, it will take away the crystals.  If some of the crystals don't dissolve, just use a spoon to remove them.  


STEP #4


Add the soap colorant.  This is personal preference.  I used 8 drops of yellow to 2 drops of red and got a deep golden color.  If you want it lighter, try using 5-6 drops of yellow and 1 drop of red.



STEP #5


Slowly pour the soap into the mold over the bubble wrap. Be careful to start pouring in the middle and let it lay on top of the bubble wrap.  If some goes under the bubble wrap, you can usually fix it later.



STEP #6


After you pour, spray the top of the soap with rubbing alcohol to remove bubbles.  This is optional, but it helps your soap look nice and smooth.


Let the soap sit until hardened, this could take a few hours.


STEP #7


Unmold the soap.  With a silicone mold, the honey soap recipe melt and pour pops out easily.


Carefully peel back the bubble wrap.  Some of the edges of my soap had clumps where the soap got under the bubble wrap.  I used a paring knife to scrape away the extra soap.



You'll be left with beautiful honey soap recipe melt and pour.  This is such a fun pattern and so easy to do.


I love to use my molds for more than one purpose and not have to buy new molds for a special design.  



This honey soap recipe melt and pour soap can be used right away, but it seems to last a little longer if you let it sit 24-48 hours before you use it.  It helps it fully harden so it doesn't dissolve in water as quickly.


Melt and pour honey soap will last quite a while, but they need to fully dry after using them.  I really recommend using a soap dish.  


I use a metal one similar to the one on Amazon.  I actually have two of them so I can rotate bars.  With five people, if i don't rotate the bars, they just dissolve because they don't get fully dry.  I just stick one in the cabinet for a day or two and then switch them out.  


The metal soap dishes are also a lot easier to clean than the wood soap dishes, and the bottom catches any extra water.  I was using wooden soap dishes, but they kept falling apart.  I've been using the metal soap dishes for years, and they still look brand new.
