DIY Homemade Honeysuckle & Rose Soap Recipe for Mother’s Day

April 2, 2014

Handmade Honeysuckle and Rose Soap Recipe for Mother's Day

May means Mother’s Day and since it will be here before you know it, now is the perfect time to get started on this amazing soap recipe I created for the April 2014 issue of Wholesale Supplies Plus’ eHandmade Magazine! This homemade cold process soap recipe combines Mom’s favorite fragrances – honeysuckle and rose – together so it smells like summer every day! An ingredient list that includes four – yes, four! – butters means this soap won’t strip Mom’s skin of precious oils making it great for even dry and maturing skin. It also lathers fabulously so cleaning up after messy kids and grandkids is a snap. Plus it’s palm free for the eco-conscious!

Dying to try this soap out? Simply download the PDF version of this month’s magazine and skip ahead to page 23. You’ll also discover a lot of other great homemade soap recipes and gift ideas for Mom including a cold process soap recipe for a soap rose bouquet, a green tea cold process soap recipe with honey and real green tea, a luxurious lime foot soak and more!

Interested in other handmade cold process soap recipes I’ve created for past issues of eHandmade?

      Good luck! I hardly get it anymore since I started using handmade soaps. I find hemp seed oil is awesome too for super dry itchy skin.

    Hi. I have a general question. Have you ever used EO and FO together in a soup. Would the two types of oils balance or cancel each other out or cease the soup mixture? I am new to soap making and absolutely LOVE to make it….. Thanks
