Honeycomb Melt & Pour Soap Tutorial
Recipe type: Melt and Pour Soap
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6 soaps
These Honeycomb Melt and Pour Soaps smell just like real honey, and feature a cute bee detail.
  • 6 Cavity Honeycomb Silicone Mold
  • 16 oz. Honey Melt and Pour Soap
  • 3 oz. White Melt and Pour Soap
  • 0.3 oz. Pure Honey Fragrance Oil
  • Black Oxide Color Block
  • Buttercup Shimmer Color Block
  • Shimmer Sparkle Gold Color Block
  • Shimmer Copper Sparkle Color Block
  • Injector Tool
  • Clean Up Tool
  • 99% Isopropyl Alcohol in Spray Bottle
  1. Chop and melt the 16 ounces of Honey Melt and Pour Base. Place 2 ounces of the base in a small, heat safe container and add shavings of the Black Oxide Color Block. Melt in the microwave using 5-10 second bursts.
  2. Using the Injector Tool, fill in the head of the bee with black soap. It’s helpful to tilt the mold slightly to help the soap stay in the “head cavity” of the mold, without dripping into the body. If it does, allow the soap to cool and harden for a few minutes, and use the Clean Up Tool to perfect the design, as shown below. After dropping the soap in the mold, spritz the soap with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of any bubbles.
  3. Then, fill in two of the small stripes on the body of the bee with the black soap. Spritz with alcohol to help get rid of any bubbles. Allow to fully cool and harden.
  4. Chop and melt 3 ounces White Melt and Pour Soap in a small heat safe container using 5-10 second bursts. Add shavings of the Shimmer Buttercup Color Block to create a light yellow color.
  5. Then carefully pour the yellow soap into the bee cavity. If necessary, clean up any drips or imperfections with a Clean Up Tool. Spritz with alcohol to remove bubbles, and allow to fully cool and harden for several minutes.
  6. While the soap cools, chop and melt the remaining Honey Melt and Pour and shavings of the Shimmer Copper Sparkle Color Block, and the Shimmer Sparkle Gold Color Block in the microwave using 20 second bursts.
  7. Once completely melted, add the Pure Honey Fragrance Oil, and use a spoon to fully mix in.
  8. Check the temperature of the soap. If it’s hotter than 130° F, allow it to cool. If the yellow soap is poured while it’s too hot, it will melt the bee details. Once the soap is between 120-129° F, spritz the mold with 99% isopropyl alcohol. Pour the gold soap into each cavity.
  9. Spritz each cavity with 99% isopropyl alcohol to help disperse bubbles. Allow the soap to fully cool and harden for several hours before attempting to remove. Once fully hardened, remove the bars from the mold, and wrap in plastic wrap to help prevent glycerin dew. Learn more about storing handmade products here. Enjoy!
