  1. Combine lye flakes with distilled water carefully. Wear gloves & long sleeves to avoid backsplash getting in contact with exposed skin. 

  2. Slowly mix with a whisk until all the lye flakes have dissolved in the distilled water. Solution may become hot, do be cautious. 

  3. To bring lye solution to room temperature, place container in a water bath. 

  4.  Measure out the Iced Honeycomb Flavoured Milk carefully to avoid any spillage and then set aside. 

  5. Separately, pour your Oil Mix into a heat resistant mixing container. Combine room temperature Lye Water  with the oil mix.

  6. Next, use a whisk and mix until it reaches thin trace. Timing of this may vary as the faster you mix, the faster solution will saponify and reaches thin trace. 

  7. Next, add in Oatmeal, Milk & Honey Fragrance Oil. For this, use a pipette for easy measuring & dispensing  

  8. Add in Honeycomb Flavoured Milk into the container and mix everything using a whisk until milk & oil are evenly dispersed throughout the soap mixture. 

  9. Prepare your silicone mold. Spray with Rubbing Alcohol to sanitise mold. Next, pour in soap mixture into each cavity. Pour carefully, soap might still be warm. 

  10.  Sprinkle on some “Honeycomb” on top of each soap. These are orange coloured soaps that's cut into pieces (can do using cold process soap or use SoapLab's Honey Soap Base) Then, leave soap for 24 to 48 hours to harden.
