Cinnamon Honey & Almond Soap Recipe

0

If you’re going to try a honey & almond soap recipe, you have to try this one! It smells so good I was actually tempted to take a bite when I first made it (I didn’t, I promise).

I stumbled upon this while I was researching the therapeutic properties of cinnamon and have found it to be a nourishing soap that will gently exfoliate for beautifully soft skin. I like to have a bit of fun with the presentation of this one. Raw, halved almonds on top and using an interesting cutter (you can even use a cookie-cutter) can take your soap to the next level.

This Cinnamon honey & almond soap recipe will produce a medium to soft bar with lots of lovely, creamy bubbles!
