Wildflower Honey Oats and Yoghurt Cold Process Soap

This yummy combination cold process soap has no added colour and is a nice journey from the kitchen pantry into the bathroom.  Because of the honey and yoghurt it can super heat so I have chosen to use individual cavity mould to ensure it doesn't over heat.  I don't insulate this soap and have a peek to see if an even gel is happening.

If you are a beginner, we recommend you make a few batches before attempting this soap as it can be a little overwhelming trying so many new things when just starting out. If you are more experienced, it's plain sailing!


300g Coconut Oil
300g Olive Oil
200g Rice Bran Oil

  35g Wildflower Honey Fragrance (L'Occitane type)

  • Prepare your workspace and set out the ingredients and  fragrance ready to go

  • Combine the honey, yoghurt and oat extract and fragrance in a glass jug or beaker.  Stir until the mixture comes together and is smooth in texture

  • Bring soap to medium trace, and then add the honey and yoghurt mixture and mix thoroughly through the traced soap.

  • You are done, pour into the mould cavitites

  • Give the surface a quick spray with isopropyl alcohol to avoid any ash, and then sprinkle a few whole oats on top to decorate

  • Check the soap periodically to see how gel is coming along.  If it's a really hot summer day you can pop the mould on a tray and slide it into the fridge to bring it down from gel.  It does depend on the ambient temperature.

  • Allow to sit in the moulds for a day or two and then unmould and slice as usual. Don't forget there's no evaporation in the silicone mould, so it will be a little softer for longer.
