When you're a beekeeper, you find yourself with lots of beeswax laying around and you find ways to use it. One of my favorite uses for beeswax is in soap making. We'll host a soap making class a little later in the season, but here's the recipe I've been using for a few years now and it's my favorite.
360 g olive oil
225 g coconut oil
175 g palm oil
32 2 castor oil
7 g beeswax
264 g distilled water
114 g sodium hydroxide
about 1 tablespoon honey
1 – 2 tablespoons fragrance or essential oils, as desired
This recipe has worked well for me, creating a creamy colored bar that does not turn to mush in the shower while still providing good lather.
