I love this honeycomb soap recipe because it looks like a gorgeous round of honeycomb but it actually an easy-to-make soap project. It’s filled with delicious honey and good-for-you ingredients and the sweetest part is that it can be made in less than 30 minutes.

This project comes from my book, Good Clean Fun: THE Idea Book for Creative Melt and Pour Soap Projects.

Good Clean Fun teaches you the basics of making melt and pour soap then shows a variety of techniques in the project chapters. Follow the recipes to get a gorgeous-looking soap with ease. Or use techniques like submersion, stamping, and swirls to customize your own unique soap projects. DIY instructions for making a soap cutting box is also included!

Tip:  For this honeycomb soap recipe you can use either:

  • Microwave or double broiler
  • Silicone soap mold or cupcake mold

From the book: Good Clean Fun: THE Idea Book for Creative Melt and Pour Soap Projects.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    Cut the bubble wrap in rounds or geometric shapes that mostly fit into the molds, leaving a bit of extra plastic as a tab so you can easily grab and pull the bubble wrap off when the soap is dry.

  • Step 2

    Cut up the soap base into 1-inch cubes and add them to the Pyrex measuring cup. Melt the soap base in a microwave or in a double boiler so that it is just melted. You want the soap base to melt but not cook. Remove the soap base from the microwave or off the double boiler before it starts to steam. There may be a few chunks left, but that is just fine. Those will melt if you keep stirring the soap base for a few minutes after removing it from the heat.

  • Step 3

    When your soap base is melted, add in the honey and essential oils to the soap mix. I like to add a bit of manuka honey to this soap for its antibacterial and healing properties and to add a delicate honey scent. The orange essential oil adds more sweet and bright scent that makes this soap deliciously decadent.

  • Step 4

    Pour the soap into the silicone mold and gently press a piece of bubble wrap on the top.

  • Step 5
