My first attempt at making my own soap a few years ago did not go very well, the reason being that I used the wrong sort of base. I used a soap base with a moisturiser in it, and it all just lathered up into a bit of a mess.

I have now re-educated myself in soap making. The important thing is the base, it needs to be a plain unscented glycerine soap. I searched the shops and found glycerine soap and unscented soap, but unscented glycerine soap? Nope.

So I expanded my search to the online market and found exactly what I needed in seconds. Now, after successfully making my own beeswax soap, I can definitely recommend the Clear Transparent Melt and Pour Soap base by The Soapery. They also provided me with a stunning natural colorant to make the soap look attractive.

Using the base, I was able to make a beeswax soap very easily. The tricky bit is pouring the soap into moulds before it starts to set.

Ingredients

100g unscented glycerine soap
1 teaspoon unbleached beeswax
˝ teaspoon natural colorant (liquid or powder)
˝ teaspoon vitamin E
A few drops essential oil of choice
