Megan's Sweet Honey Almond Soap Recipe

Submitted By:

Megan of Indianapolis, IN


Family favorite! Sweet smelling soap with great lather (does not use Palm oil)


1oz Beeswax
8.6oz Coconut Oil
3.2oz Olive Oil
19.2oz Soybean Oil
4.8oz Lye
9.6oz Water
1 tsp Salt
0.5oz Almond fragrance oil
0.5oz Honey fragrance oil


Mix water, salt, and lye. Let cool. Mix soybean oil, olive oil, coconut oil, and beeswax. Heat oils until they reach 100-110 degrees F. Wait until lye mixture cools to 90-95 degrees F. Slowly stir together oils and lye mixture. Stir and stir and stir! Add almond and honey fragrance oils. Stir! (If unable to reach trace, place mixture in microwave for one minute and 15 seconds.) Once you reach light trace, add coloring (I like the beeswax color naturally produced, so I don't color this particular batch). Stir and pour into mold. Cover mold.
In two days, release from mold and cut soap into slices (if applicapable). Let soap cure for at least 4-6 weeks. The longer cure time, the harder (longer lasting) your bar of soap will be!

"Each time I use your Web site, I am thrilled with how complex and thorough the information is and yet how intuitive and simple the site is to use. I do the majority of my shopping online and work as part of a huge global company's knowledge distribution arm, so I review and use lots of sites. The FNWL site is the best I have encountered from a consumer prospective. It must take an incredible amount of resources to maintain and I just want to say thank you for going to that level of effort! I have learned so much from reading the detailed product information and loved the items I've purchased. Thank you!"
