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!

If you are a beginner, we recommend you make a few batches before attempting this soap as it can have a hot gel. For how to make soap from Scratch, please see our Cold Process Soapmaking Instructions. You can also watch Soap Queen's You Tube Series on Cold Process Soapmaking.
- 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.
If using the Trolley items, you need to purchase Distilled Water, Olive Oil and Sodium Hydroxide from the supermarket.
