The Wonders of Honey in Soap

By February 7, 2013

Honey is a wonderful additive in cold process soap. I'm sure soap makers and Democritus would have been able to share recipes! Honey is one of the oldest "ingredients" known to man. It adds a bit of lathering capability (from the sugar content,) and also acts as a humectant like glycerin. I like it best in recipes like goat's milk soap or one of my favorite soap recipes, Citrus Honey Bock soap.
