10-MINUTE DIY MILK & HONEY SOAP

This easy DIY Milk and Honey soap can be made in just 10 minutes, and it boasts lots of great skin benefits from the goat’s milk and honey! A wonderful quick and easy homemade gift idea!

Milk and honey soap has always been one of my favorites. It smells divine, and there are loads of skin benefits from the honey – it’s moisturizing, clarifying, soothing, and also naturally antibacterial. Because of these properties, honey is fantastic for the treatment of acne and aging and for general complexion brightening. C’mon now, we all could use a little bit of anti-aging and complexion brightening, right?

I love these soaps for their sweet delicate aroma and for the great skin benefits, but what I love even more is the fact that I can whip up an entire batch of these beauties in under 10 minutes! They’ll take a little longer to firm up, but the actual “work” part is done in less than 10 minutes.

SUPPLIES TO MAKE DIY MILK & HONEY SOAP:

I didn’t take any step-by-step photos of the soap making process this time, but I did make this video!

I use about 1 lb (or half of the block) of soap base at a time which makes nine of these honeycomb soaps or four large 4-ounce soaps. The block of goat’s milk soap base is soft, and it cuts easily with a kitchen knife. I slice the soap base into cubes, place them inside a 4-cup Pyrex measuring cup, and melt in the microwave. Melt in 20-30 second increments, stirring well after each microwave session, to ensure that the soap is completely melted. For 1 lb of soap, I generally microwave for 30 seconds, stir, microwave for another 30 seconds, stir again, and microwave a final time for 20 seconds.

When the soap is completely melted, stir in 3 tablespoons of honey and a few drops of  yellow soap colorant.  I also added one drop of red colorant to give my soap a more golden hue. Pour the melted soap into the honeycomb mold, and allow to sit undisturbed until cool. The cooling process can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on temperature and humidity levels.

These DIY milk & honey soaps make a fantastic homemade gift – perfect for friends, family, teachers, coaches, and neighbors! They’re great for fundraisers and craft fairs, too!
