Melt and Pour Beeswax Soap

Beeswax Soap

 4 oz unscented, clear glycerin soap
 1 tsp grated beeswax
 About 10 drops of fragrance/essential oil
 1-2 drops food coloring (optional)

   Best done in a double boiler to ensure even heating. Melt the soap until liquid. Grate beeswax and add to te melted soap. No need for heating much above 145 degrees. Too hot and the beeswax and fragrance can "burn off". Now add the fragrance and food coloring. Stir thoroughly. Pour into a mold and let it set overnight.

  1. Does adding beeswax make melt and pour soap softer or does it help firming the soap?
