How to Make Soaps: Beeswax Soap Recipe

Create Your Own Beeswax Soap!

If you have ever wanted to make soap using beeswax, here’s your chance.  Beeswax is known for having hydrating properties that help to restore dry skin and increase your natural moisture!


Bee Good Soap Recipe

I have collected some of the ingredients called for in the soap recipe for you.  The links take you to Mountain Rose Herbs, the site where I get many of my ingredients from.  They specialize in organic products and have a huge selection to choose from.  Their products are top quality and you will be able to tell from the finished soap you make.


How to Make Beeswax Soap Instructions

Heat oils to 150 degrees F.  Add beeswax (you can grate it, chunk it, pre-melt it).

Cool to 115 degrees F.  Lye and water to about 110 degrees F.  Add lye/water to oils, at light trace, add the honey.  Stir it well until blended.

Pour into your mold, no more than an inch deep (covering with Saran type wrap prevents soda ash). Don’t wrap with a blanket, just put a cookie sheet over the top, as this will get warmer than soaps without honey.

You can scent this as you like, add scents at light trace.

Enjoy Your Beeswax Soap!

    How much soap will you yield from the beeswax soap recipe?
    I”m just not sure as to how large a mold to use.
    Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    To calculate for mold volume is :
    Lenght of mold x width of mold x height of soap x .40 = ounces of oil needed
    Example: My mold is 6″ x 6″ and I pour my soap to 2.25″ high so the calculation will be :
    6″ x 6″ x 2.25 x0.40 = 32.4 oz
    I found this in http://www.soap-making-essentials.com

    I think 1 pound of oils will yield 1 1/4 pound of soap.
