Spicy Milk and Honey Soap Recipe


A pleasant smelling moisturizing soap made with evaporated milk and honey.

Ingredient List

48 ounces - Vegetable Shortening

22 ounces - Coconut Oil

16 ounces - Olive Oil

24 ounces - Cold Distilled Water

12 ounces - Lye

12 ounces - Evaporated Milk

0.25 cup - Honey

0.75 ounces - Cinnamon Oil

0.5 ounces - Clove Oil


Temperatures: around 100 degrees

After incorporating the lye solution with the oils, add: 12 oz. can evaporated milk, warmed (for lighter colored soap with firmer texture, you can use only 6 oz. evaporated milk and increase the water by 2-4 ounces)

1/4 cup honey, dissolved into milk (for a lighter color and less tendency to separate, you can cut this back to 1 T.)

At light trace, mix in:

3/4 oz. cinnamon oil

1/2 oz. clove oil

The essential oils will accelerate trace, so be prepared to quickly pour the soap when it starts to thicken. The milk will turn color as you watch after being added. Maybe if it had been cooler, it wouldn't have gotten quite so dark, but the color goes well with the spices. In the future, I will not insulate a batch like this until it begins to cool after going through the "gel" stage.
