Now, let me take you back to history a little bit. Why you may ask? No big deal. It’s just that Cleopatra’s (Yes, Cleopatra the Queen of Beauty herself) beauty secret will be revealed here right now.


Cleopatra’s Beauty Secret Revealed

It’s no secret that Cleopatra was and remains to be a source of unfailing beauty tips and tricks to this day. Her beauty regimen has been followed and known to be effective across generations for centuries now.

We’re lucky to have had the honour of getting access to this beauty legend’s secrets so we can all have a taste of her queenly splendor.

Aside from her intelligence, skills, talent in music, dancing, amazing voice, and not to mention being a great leadership skill, she believed in SELF-CARE a lot.

I know our days can be busy and we sometimes forget to take care of ourselves. Cleopatra is the exemplar of balance, being the diva that she is while ruling Egypt from Rome. We don’t have excuses for not looking great!

I’ve gathered simple and easy DIY face mask ideas for you to start your journey to looking great.

Cleopatra also believed in the power of rose oil. Find out all about rose bath bombs here. It will also be great to start acquainting yourself with fragrance oils as it would help a lot with relaxation and making you feel good inside and out.

Cleopatra’s Taste of Honey

Aside from using her own handmade soaps and fragrance oils, the Queen of Beauty is a huge fan of the sweet smell and hydrating abilities of honey.

First, she used honey in her baths. How? She indulges herself in milk and honey baths whenever she wants. Legend has it that she would bring some donkeys with her during travels to produce milk for her in case she needs a bath anytime (Now, that’s the life of a queen).

You can feel like a queen yourself by having your own honey baths!

Just clean your skin up with your favorite handmade soap before mixing 3 cups of milk with half a cup of honey and 5 tablespoons of almond or olive oil.

You may also add your preferred fragrance oil for additional aroma. Then, enjoy a bath fit for a queen!

As for her face, she does not skip facial masks to keep her youthful and glowing facial skin. For refreshed and nourished face, just gather soap making supplies for this homemade face mask below and you’re on your way to eternal youth.

All you need to do is mix an egg yolk, a tablespoon of almond oil, and a teaspoon of honey. Just mix everything up and leave it on your face for 10 to 15 minutes.

That’s Cleopatra’s secret right there. Try it and thank me later.   

 Honey is a Miracle in a Jar

Honey has been around for over 5,000 years. Being around for this long must mean something, right? Well, this sticky substance made by our bee friends is one heavenly product.

Ancient Egyptians have used honey to treat wounds and have mixed it with medicine to treat other illnesses. What can be in honey that makes it a miracle worker?

This gift from the heavens is loaded with vitamins and minerals, which includes Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Iron, and Calcium. Sounds great? There’s even more. Honey is also composed of antioxidants and generous amounts of amino acids.  

Honey makes a good addition to your beauty routine for several reasons. It is the answer to dry skin, acne problems, aging skin, scars, and uneven skin tone. Don’t we hate all these? What if one product can get rid of our mortal enemies? I’m telling you it’s possible with the use of all-natural products.

Grab your soap making supplies to make the best soap for your face and pair it with honey face mask, and you’re on your way to smooth and glowing skin!

Why is honey good for your skin and why is it best to include it in your beauty regimen? First, honey is a good moisturizer. Second, it has anti-aging properties. Third, honey fights acne. Fourth, it makes your skin have a better complexion. Lastly, honey naturally removes scars.


What do you do when you run out of facial wash? You use honey on your face? Yes, that’s right. Honey on your face is always a good idea. Soap and other store-bought facial washes can dry your skin out (except for organic handmade soap).

Honey is truly magical as it has properties that can retain and preserve moisture, thus helping to keep the natural moisture of your skin without making you feel greasy. Isn’t that great? No need for any other synthetic chemicals.

You can choose various soap making kits from this link.

At first, it may seem weird to touch sticky honey, but trust me just get a dollop of honey and massage it onto your wet face gently (Remember to apply on wet skin, as it can be hard to spread on dry skin).

Just as you would do with your regular facial wash, rinse your face thoroughly (honey actually rinses with water quickly) then pat dry with a soft towel.

It’s worth the try and I love how simple and quick it is to get a moisturized skin.



When it comes to defending your skin, honey is your best bet. From now on, you can kiss your aging goodbye because you just got your best weapon against skin aging.

The best way to go is to be HONEY-fied. Along with regular intake of fruits and vegetables and using all natural products (like natural handmade soap or soap recipes) adding honey to your diet and skincare routine might just be the best thing to ever happen to you. That youthful glow you’ve always wanted is now just one cupboard away.

The antioxidants found in honey will help stop time by giving you soft, smooth, and glowing skin all the days of your life.

Goodbye wrinkles and fine lines!



Do you have a love-hate relationship with your zits? (I mean they love you, and you hate them. Who doesn’t hate zits?) If your zits love you a lot, it’s now time to bid them farewell. Gone are the days when you would try to conceal your zits with makeup, which makes them even worse. Hello to the best acne remedy ever!

Honey has been used to be one of the main components of pimple treatment meds, but you don’t actually need to add any more chemicals to it to make it work. Plain and simple honey is enough to zap those zits away.

The antibacterial and cleansing nature of honey prevents pimples and cures existing ones while keeping oiliness out.

As you clean your face with honey, it unclogs your pores leaving your skin clean, pimple-free and oil-free. Now you can also reduce touch-ups within the day.    

For best results, consider getting into a homemade face mask routine twice a week. I would suggest a honey and lemon mask for acne-prone skin. You can also use a honey and oats soap recipe.

You can find a honey and lemon mask recipe below.

Also, keep in mind that healthy skin means clean skin. Make it a habit to wash your face every night with all-natural handmade soap products because these can’t harm your acne-prone skin. (To start, find soap making kits in this link.)



I’ve been on the lookout for the best remedy for uneven skin tone. I always fall back on makeup to conceal dark spots on my face, but now that I found the simplest solution to my problem, I can go makeup free more often. Hooray for lazy days!

The acids found in honey gently exfoliate the skin, thus making it a complexion booster by brightening your skin tone.

There’s even more to honey than this because it can also help reduce age spots! Through the enzymes found in honey, healthy skin cell production gets heightened, giving you that natural glow.

Now you can confidently face the world makeup free!

To make a complexion booster, find a DIY face mask recipe below that will best suit your skin’s current needs.



As I’ve mentioned earlier, honey has been used in ancient times to heal wounds, so why not use it to remove scars as well? Oh yes, those scars will just be a thing of the past with the use of honey on your face.

Sure, you got rid of pimples on your face, but what about the marks and scars they left behind?

Oh I know, you can have them treated with laser and have them treated for a series of sessions. Why am I not a fan of this solution?

First, it can get expensive. Second, it will require you to alter your busy schedule just to go to the clinic. Third, it will take you to several expensive sessions before seeing results. What if you can get rid of acne marks and scars at home?

Can I get an Amen? AMEN! Treating acne marks and scars can be easy, cheap, and not time-consuming. Honey can be used alone or in combination with other natural soap and soap recipes to heal damaged skin cells and fade scars.

So how does honey become an amazing scar remover? It reduces any skin inflammation you may have. Having antioxidants also makes honey repair the damaged skin, which makes your scars heal faster.

No need to buy expensive meds or visit the laser center for those acne scars and marks on your face. Leave it to honey and your skin will thank you for it.

To start getting rid of your scars, try out the DIY honey face mask recipes below.  


What is the Difference Between Raw Honey and Regular Honey?

You might ask if it is better to use raw honey or regular honey for your skin needs. You might be thinking, “Can I grab any kind of honey from the supermarket?” “Does it matter?” “Why does it matter?”

I say you can never go wrong with going au naturel. When you go out to purchase your jar of honey, make sure you get raw honey for your skin. Why?

Regular Honey (aka processed honey, fake honey) is the kind of honey we usually see in store shelves. Regular honey undergoes pasteurization before packing happens. This is to ensure that the honey is free from any harmful bacteria, as it is used on food. But it also gets rid of microorganisms in the honey but removes the good microorganisms as well.

What does this mean? This means that you can’t get the most out of the honey anymore due to the lost benefits from processing it.

Honey is only effective when it has all the necessary enzymes to work well. If you see “pasteurized” in the label, stop and look for another one.

Raw Honey (aka unprocessed honey) as the name suggests, is honey that comes straight from the beehive (no heating or processing involved.) This is one of those times when you’d say that “pure” is not always clean. What did I just say? You read it right. To spot raw honey, you will notice that raw honey is cloudier and has very fine crystal-like substances. It can even have bee wing fragments sometimes.

When you see this, then you’ll know that you’re choosing unfiltered, raw honey. Though some raw honey can be filtered to remove the particles for easy selling, it also helps to check the label to see if what you are buying is raw.    

How to know if Your Honey is Pure

Check out these three quick and easy tests you can do at home to test the purity of your honey:

1. Thumb Test

Place a small drop of honey on your thumb.

Wait and watch if the honey spills from your thumb.

You will know your honey is pure if it does not spill and stays in your thumb.

2. Water Test

Place one tablespoon of your honey in a glass of water.

Wait and watch if the honey will settle at the bottom of the glass or dissolve in the water.

You will know the honey is pure if it settles at the bottom of the glass.

3. Flame Test

Dip a matchstick in your honey. Try to light the match by striking it against the matchbox.

You will know your honey is pure if the matchstick lights up easily. Pure honey is flammable so this test will help you find out if you have pure honey.

Follow these steps with caution though as the matchstick may keep burning with pure honey on it.

Once you have found out the purity of your honey, you’re ready to make a DIY Honey Face Mask for your skin needs.

Though raw honey can be great by itself, much more benefits and better results can come out from mixing it with other natural soap making supplies as well.

Here, I’d like you to know that artificial chemicals are not ALOE-d in any way as a fix for your skin issues. All you need are two things: honey and aloe vera.

Mix 2 teaspoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel in a small bowl. Massage the mixture onto your face and leave for 10 – 20

The Secrets to Making the Best Essential Oil Blends for Soap

Ever since I’ve tried out essential oils, I’ve been wanting to try to make some for myself.

So one Saturday morning, I dashed to my local apothecary to buy some soap making supplies. Once I got my soap making kits, I tried making fragrance oils, and I can say I have no regrets at all!

I think it is definitely worth my time and effort especially after creating something that’s enjoyable and beneficial for my handmade soap. How to make soap without essential oils? That’s preposterous! It does not only benefit my soap business but my temporal well-being.

With this, I can say that the increasing popularity of essential oils will be here to stay for a long time. Essential oils are really essential in every sense of that word.

What makes it essential?

The essential oil is directly extracted from different parts of a plant or a tree. The oil from a plant or tree is concentrated, transferring all the healing compounds of the plant into a bottle of oil.

Did you know that one will need 65 pounds of rose petals just to fill a 15ml bottle of rose essential oil? Amazing, isn’t it? Now, that’s powerful! Nature has given us this gift, so why not use it?

Essential oils have been used in ancient times and has been found to be helpful in many ways up to this day. If you are not aware yet, essential oils are used for medicine, food, cosmetics, and perfume. Add aromatherapy and of course, soap.

After you learn how to make soap, it will always be a great idea to add fragrance oil or essential oil for soap to complete your soap making routine.

Once you’ve tried adding essential oil for soap, you will never want to run out of this as one of your homemade soap making supplies in your soap making kits. Knowing more about using essential oil for soap will surely add spice to your soap making hobby or business.

Using essential oil for soap will add fragrance to your finished product and bring a ton of health benefits as well.

Find the Best Essential Oil For Soap

There are lots of variety of essential oils you can choose from, but remember that essential oil for soap may be different from essential oil for medicine or food.

Here, let me tell you some kinds of essential oil for soap that you can choose from. I like to call this the essential oil blending starter pack.



Lavender Essential Oil

This essential oil and fragrance oil in one is one for your soap making kits. The best one to use is lavender 40/42, also known as Lavandin. True lavender may be too strong as an essential oil for soap. (See more about fragrance oil here.)

Lavender is ideal to use for those who want to mass produce handmade soap because the aroma always remains the same or standardized.

Flower petals like lavender petals, rose petals, and the like are also great additions when using lavender as an essential oil for soap.

Complete your soap making kits by adding lavender, rose petals, etc. to your homemade soap making supplies.

Rosemary Essential Oil

Just like the lavender fragrance oil, you also need to choose the right kind of Rosemary as your essential oil for soap. The usual fragrance oil of choice would be the Spanish Rosemary and the Moroccan Rosemary. You may also choose your own fragrance oil depending on your type.

To get best results, it is always great to have actual flower bits like flower buds and rose petals available into your soap making kits.

Lemon Essential Oil

Doesn’t the smell of the actual lemon fruit already refresh you? Just imagine using it as an essential oil for soap.

If you already knolw how to make soap, you will also know that you want to use ingredients for their lasting effect on the skin. Folded lemon essential oil for soap can do just that.

Your soap making kits will not be complete if you don’t add this fragrance oil as one of your homemade soap making supplies must-haves.

Want to add more flare into your soap making business? Try making it more fun by adding color to your soap product. You can find some homemade soap making supplies here.

Cedarwood Essential Oil

Unlike the first two fragrance oils mentioned above, if you want to use Cedarwood as an essential oil for soap, you can get to choose the variant that you want. That’s because all varieties are good to use for soap making.

The woodsy aroma of this fragrance oil can be a good match to lavender or rose petals as well.

What can rose petals possibly add to the value of your soap? Find out more about it by clicking this link.

Patchouli Essential Oil

The combination of aromas found in Patchouli makes it a unique fragrance oil to add as an essential oil for soap making. Feel free to choose the variant that suits your type or your client’s type. You can choose between the dark and light variants of Patchouli.

If you are looking for a fragrance oil that will guarantee long-lasting aroma, then consider this your go-to fragrance oil to add in your soap making kits. Never run out of choices in your homemade soap making supplies again with this unique fragrance oil.

Clary Sage Essential Oil

Here is another unique fragrance oil for those who do not want to smell like a hundred more people. The fragrance oil may not be on the popular side, but it surely is a way on how to make soap making a notch higher.

To make your soap product more interesting, why don’t you add some color and dried buds and petals to it. You can find lavender, rose petals, etc. by clicking this link.

Orange Essential Oil

The fresh smell of oranges is always a relaxing and refreshing scent to smell. Just like the Patchouli essential oil, this fragrance oil also has long-lasting aroma when mixed with soap. Who doesn’t want to smell fresh all day, right?

Having said this, I think having orange essential oil is an essential item for your soap making kits.

Another good thing about this essential oil for soap is that it is easy to blend with other homemade soap making supplies you have available.

Peppermint Essential Oil

COOL! Just hearing the word peppermint already sends coolness all over my body. This essential oil for soap makes a good addition to your collection of homemade soap making supplies.

Though it can be tricky to use and blend (especially for beginners,) everything will be cool once you master the craft of blending peppermint.

If you are new to the business of soap making, you can find tips that can help you to start how to make soap and how to set prices in this blog post.

Bergamot Essential Oil

Want to add a little spice to your soap? I might just found the right fragrance oil for you. Bergamot essential oil for soap will give your soap a combination of citrus and a kind of spicy floral aroma

It may not be easily available in all homemade soap making supplies store, but once you found one, don’t let go. Why? That’s because this is a gem in a way that it can easily be blended with other fragrance oils you have in your soap making kits.

Why not make your soap more attractive by adding flower petals to it such as lavender petals,, lily petals, rose petals, and the like? You will be amazed by what you can do with your homemade soap making supplies.

Tea Tree Essential Oil

Is there anyone here who doesn’t love tea tree oil? It may not always be the first choice when it comes to choosing a fragrance oil, but when it comes to choosing the essential oil for soap (especially facial soap) this one is a keeper.

If you know how to make soap, try adding tea tree oil to your usual soap making recipe and you’ll be amazed with the results.

Your soap making kits will gain a superstar in skin care in the form of tea tree oil.


The Pros and Cons

To help you decide which kind of essential oil to use, refer to the chart below to give you an idea about the price, availability, and popularity of each essential oil mentioned above.

Explore The Essential Oil Blend That Will Suit Your Need

Do you feel tired? Too sleepy? Are you an insomniac? Is your body sickly?

There’s a lot of questions to consider when blending essential oil for soap. You can be overwhelmed with the many good things that blending essential oil for soap can bring to your life. Yes, your life!

If you will ask me, essential oil blend is the answer to almost everything that you need on a daily basis from cleaning to health needs. It has it all. Now, before you start taking out all your homemade soap making supplies, soap making kits, and fragrance oils take note of what I am about to say.

In blending essential oil for soap, it is essential that you find out first what you need. Are you blending for therapeutic or aromatic purposes?

Therapeutic Blends are those that help ease emotional or physical conditions. Though the aroma is still important, these blends are more leaning on the therapeutic effect rather than the aromatic effect.

Aromatic Blends are of course, ones that satisfy not only your sense of smell, but spread to all of your senses. Did you know that research has shown that smell can have an effect on almost everything, from your emotions, stress levels, to concentration and sleep? Different fragrance oils can have different effects on our bodies.

Have Homemade Soap Supplies and Fragrance Oils Ready

Now that you know about the essential oil for soap that you want, it’s blending time!

What you need:

  • choice of fragrance oils and essential oils (Remember to have the good quality ones for best results.)
  • Testing strips (to check the right aroma)
  • Tiny glass bottles
  • Glass bottles with dropper
  • Handy dandy notebook

Know The Category Of Your Essential Oil

Just like when you first learned how to make soap, there are things to consider before you start blending or mixing all your ingredients up.

With essential oil for soap, you can’t just blend anything you want. There is an art to it, and it starts with categorizing them first.

Here is a list of the categories of the essential oil for soap we listed above. You’re welcome!

Citrus – Lemon, Orange, Bergamot

Earthy – Patchouli

Floral – Lavender

Herby – Rosemary, Clary Sage

Medicinal – Rosemary, Tea Tree

Minty – Peppermint

Woodsy – Cedarwood

There you go! You’re one step closer to creating your very own blends!

Which fragrance oils can you blend together?

The fun part of blending essential oil for soap is that you can mix and match according to your liking. Combine, combine, combine. That’s all you actually have to do. As simple as it may sound, you might also want to take some tips (especially those who just started to learn how to make soap and how to blend essential oil for soap.)

Tip #1: You will never go wrong with combining oils from the same category.

Tip #2: Opposites attract. Combining oil from complementary categories make a good match.

Tip #3: Try these possible combinations:

  • Floral goes well with woodsy and citrus.
  • Woodsy is good with any of the categories.
  • Earthy and Herby smell great with woodsy and minty.
  • Minty goes well with woodsy, earthy, herby, and citrus.
  • Medicinal can be combined with woodsy.
  • Citrus will smell great with floral, woodsy, and minty.

Let me tell you this. Blending essential oil for soap is not a walk in the park. It can get tedious, and patience can come in handy. Once you get the hang of it, you can possibly make more of your own combinations soon.

Now, you’re ready to blend fragrance oils with colorants and dried flowers! Read here to find out more.

Dance to the Music of Essential Oil Notes  

In blending fragrance oil and essential oil for soap, maintaining a balance between your combinations is the golden rule.

Just like dancing, dance steps need to be aligned with the music’s rhythm and beat. Otherwise, the dance routine will look scattered and unfinished. That’s how it is with blending fragrance oil as well. We need to find the right blend to ensure the best quality through the essential oil notes.

The notes tell you how quickly the essential oil aroma will fade. For all you know, your blend smells good and easily fades away within the day. We don’t like that. I am a sucker for quality, so I won’t let you be in that situation.

What are the essential oil notes?

  1. Top Notes – They are the first scent that you smell, but they also evaporate quickly. They are mostly from flowers, leaves, and flowering herbs.
  2. Base Notes – They often have earthy scent. The deep aroma lasts the longest. They are mostly from trees, roots, and barks.
  3. Middle Notes – They are like the “neutralizer” of top and base notes. They are often from whole herbs and spices.

When making your own blends, it is good to start with three different fragrance oils first. So, you can have one top, base, and middle note.

It can take a bit of practice before being a master at this, but you will not regret putting in your time and effort at this. Being a “maestro” of essential oil notes can get you to greater heights with your soap making business!

Put Just The Right Amount of Oil Into Each Blend

When you first learned how to make soap, you got yourself used to ratios. I hope you did because you will find it useful when you make your own essential oil for soap.

Though you are free to make your own ratios, here are two of the common ratios that you can use (so you will not waste any of your homemade soap making supplies or drain the items in your soap making kits.)

Just remember these three magic numbers: 20-30-50! What does that mean? Just use 20% base note, 30% top note, and 50% middle note. That is 2 drops of your base note, 3 drops of your top note, and 5 drops of your middle note, for a total of 10 drops in all. Keep this in mind and you’re good to go.

I am all about simplicity, so if you are like me, you will love this blending ratio. You can actually choose to drop equal amounts of oil especially if you want to blend oils from the same category. It’s that easy!

Now, we’re ready to blend!
