It is officially February, and this month we are bringing you everything BEES! This project utilized one of our favorite silicone loaf molds and smells of the amazing pure honey fragrance oil! Read on to find out how to make this bee inspired soap.
What You’ll Need:
4.5 oz Clear Melt & Pour Soap
Fizzy Lemonade Color Block
Yellow Oxide Color Block
Mini Heart Silicone Embed
Easy Pour Container
3 lb Clear Melt & Pour Soap
Black Oxide Color Block
Titanium Dioxide Color Block
10 mL Pure Honey Fragrance Oil
Tall 12″ Silicone Loaf Mold
2 Pyrex Containers

In an easy pour container, melt down 4.5 oz clear melt & pour soap. Once melted, add in shavings of fizzy lemonade color block and yellow oxide color block. (We used more fizzy lemonade then yellow oxide.)
Once you get your desired color, place the mini heart embed in a tall cup and pour the soap into the embed. Leave on the counter to fully harden or place in the freezer.
While you are waiting for the embed to harden up, melt down 22.5 oz clear melt & pour soap in a pyrex container. Once fully melted, add in shavings of the black oxide color block as well as 5 mL of fragrance oil. Mix in well and set aside.
In another pyrex container melt down another 22.5 oz clear melt and pour. Add in shavings of titanium dioxide color block and 5 mL fragrance oil. Mix everything in until completely incorporated.
Check on the heart embed and see if it has hardened up yet. If it has, take it out of the mold, and cut to the length of the tall 12″ silicone loaf mold. Set aside.
Pour the black soap into the bottom of the loaf mold about 1/2 inch. Spray with rubbing alcohol to get rid of any bubbles.
Once the first layer has hardened up enough to pour another layer of soap, use a spoon and spoon in white soap on top of the black layer. Keep adding white soap until there is about 1/2 inch of soap. Spray with rubbing alcohol.
When the white layer has harden up a bit, place the heart embed off-centered on top of the layer of soap. Be sure not to press down to hard as you don’t want to puncture the previous layer. Spray well and start adding another layer of black soap. Add enough soap to fully cover the heart embed.
Repeat with one more layer of white soap and finish with a layer of black soap. In the end, there will be three layers of black and two layers of white.
Spray the top with rubbing alcohol to ensure you have a smooth surface. Let fully harden before unmolding.
*Note: Do not place the soap loaf into the freezer as this will increase the chances having the layers separate.*
After you have unmolded the soap, place the soap loaf on its side and cut the bars going with the layers, not against. This will also help ensure the layers don’t separate.
For the month of February, take 15% off beeswax!
