'Bee' Aware Soap

This is a soap that I made for Bee awareness week, because of recent you may of heard that bees having been put on the endangered species list. This is unacceptable. Our world would die without bees. Did you know that our world could only survive for 3-4 months without them? Crazy right? So let's show a little support for these guys, after all, we wouldn't be here without them. OK, down to business. This soap, like my earlier post 'Exfoliating Vanilla Latte Soap' uses melt and pour soap base. Also you will need beeswax, which can often be found at honey stores or craft stores. And of course the luxurious honey. Any will do but I prefer 'Manuka'.

'Bee' Aware Soap

Silicone loaf pan
450grams (16 ounces) white or clear melt and pour soap
100grams Beeswax (I used unbleached)
3 tablespoons honey (of your preference)

Chop Melt and Pour soap into chunks.
Melt in microwave in 30 second bursts.
Once melted add beeswax and melt for an extra 30 seconds.
Stir until beeswax dissolves (you may need and extra 30 seconds in the microwave).
Add honey and stir until combined.
Pour into loaf pan and allow to set.

Using clear melt and pour soap will allow your soap to be the natural colour of the beeswax.

Before pouring your soap into the loaf pan, place bubble wrap, bubble side up inside the loaf pan to give it a honeycomb effect.
