Sweet as Honey

 Hey All!
Today I'm sharing a photo of a custom order I created by special request.  This is my Golden Honey soap made with locally produced organic honey and beeswax.  I use fragrance from  Majestic Mountain Sage for this particular soap recipe and it's just perfect for the overall product.  

I created this recipe to showcase the natural beauty of the honey, which provides both nourishment and protection for the the skin.  The natural sugars create abundantly creamy lather that leaves the skin feeling silky soft.  The rich clover honey scent is rounded out with just a touch of almond for a soap that's a luxurious treat to use.  

I posted photos of this soap a few weeks ago when it was first cut.  As you can see, it has cured to a dark caramel color and the fragrance has really held strong.  Although I still tend to struggle somewhat with stamping my soaps, I think this order turned out great with a true country look.  I know my customer loved it, and I plan on making some more that will be available in early summer.

  1. It really is incredible to think that a flower honey is able to be good for your skin. I personally think that honey is meant to be a natural sweetener for your food or drink. Being able to have a way to use it for your skin is very nice as well. Hopefully this soap smells great as well to match its beauty. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you Jason for your kind words! I love this soap, it's a wonderful facial bar, as well as versatile bath soap. It does smell fabulous - rich and buttery honey scent makes you feel fresh and wonderful.
