A Quick and Easy Goats Milk and Manuka Honey Soap Recipe

Goats milk soap is great for the skin and this recipe is one of my favorites because it takes so little time.  I've put in a few links to the ingredients so you can get them for yourself.  This is perfect project for gift giving as well!

What You’ll Need:

I use about 1 lb (or half of the block) of soap base at a time which makes nine of these honeycomb soaps or four large 4-ounce soaps. The block of goat’s milk soap base is soft, and it cuts easily with a kitchen knife. I slice the soap base into cubes, place them inside a 4-cup Pyrex measuring cup, and melt in the microwave. Melt in 20-30 second increments, stirring well after each microwave session, to ensure that the soap is completely melted. For 1 lb of soap, I generally microwave for 30 seconds, stir, microwave for another 30 seconds, stir again, and microwave a final time for 20 seconds.

I let it cool for just a minute and then add my honey.  I again stir this in so it is well blended, microwave it for just 30 seconds more and then pour into my molds.  They will need about 4 hours to completely harden.

I package them in tissue paper and keep them in a jar with a lid for myself, but if you want to give them out as gifts, there are so many ways you can package them for gifts, so get creative!
