- Cut your 1 kg opaque soap base into small chunks and place into a pan (around 100 grams). Slowly heat the chunks until all chunks are melted, remember to regularly stir the soap and do not exceed 70°C.
- Step 2:
- Once the soap base has fully melted you can now add a few drops of honey fragrance oil and yellow pigment, and stir thoroughly.Step 3:
- Now carefully spoon the mixture into the bee cavity, wipe away any excess or spillage.Step 4:
- Like step 1, cut your 1 kg clear soap base in half, then cut one half into small chunks and place into a pan. Slowly heat the chunks until all chunks are melted, remember to regularly stir the soap and do not exceed 70°C.Step 5:
- Slowly pour the honey fragrance oil into the melted soap, we used around 5ml of fragrance oil. Now carefully add the yellow colourant in the melted soap until you reach the desired colour, we used roughly 5ml of colourant.Step 6:
- Now carefully pour the mixture over the top of the bee cavities untill all 4 moulds are full to the top, this should use around 500 grams of soap base. Rubbing alcohol can be used at this point to disperse the surface bubbles. Leave the soaps to fully set for around 2 hours, or place in the fridge for 30 minutes
- Step 7:
- Once your soaps are fully set, they should pop out the mould easily, if you are struggling to pop them out, allow them to set for a while longer. You have now completed your beautiful bee soaps!
You can now repeat the whole process with the left over ingredients to make another 4 soap bars.
