Honey Glycerin Soap

Yum. Honey has a long and romantic history - it is one of the oldest "ingredients" known to man. Through the ages women have bathed in and used honey to keep their skin and hair radiant. Honey is known for its humectant and antimicrobial qualities. (A humectant is a compound that attracts moisture to itself and helps retain the moisture.) Naturally, humectants are wonderful additives to lotions, scrubs and other skin care products.
The sweet distinctive fragrance adds to the allure.
I made roll-up soaps with Honey Glycerin soap base. The design is intended to resemble the unmistakable honeycomb design.
