Honey and Milk Bee Bars

This fun melt-and-pour project is easy enough for beginners and hardly takes any time at all. You wouldn't know it by the highly detailed results! As the seasons change and the temperatures drop, I'm in the mood for comfort soap. Honey and goat milk are both super nourishing and moisturizing, and our best selling Oatmeal, Milk and Honey fragrance is sweet, warm, and toasty.

Beehive Tray Mold
One Bee Tray Mold
2 Pounds Honey Melt-and-Pour Base
1 Pound Goat Milk Melt-and-Pour Base
Oatmeal, Milk and Honey Fragrance Oil
Yellow Mica
Copper Sparkle Mica
Large knife
Rubbing alcohol

Start by melting the goat milk soap base. Add 4 ml of scent per pound of soap. Use your dropper to fill the bee details on both trays. Set it aside to harden.

Melt one pound of honey base, add 4 ml scent, two mini scoops of yellow and two mini scoops of copper sparkle mica. Mix well, spray white details with rubbing alcohol and pour the honey soap over both trays.

Let harden, spray rubbing alcohol and pour another layer of goat milk soap. Melt the other pound of honey base and color with just the copper sparkle (2-4 mini scoops). Finish both trays with this copper/honey layer and let harden. Spraying rubbing alcohol ensures that your layers stick together.

Remove soap from tray molds and cut with kitchen knife. The One Bee mold has score marks to follow, and the other tray is one big piece that requires measuring or just eye-balling it. I love how easy it is to make multiple bars at once with tray molds. They came out bee-autiful!


  1. Since I'm a beekeeper, I love this. But I always worry that my customers will be creeped out if the bees are too realistic. What do people think?

  2. LOVE them. Bees creep me out a little...but the soaps are lovely!
