Honey Coconut Cream Glycerin Chunk Soap

The reverse of my Honey Glycerin Cream Chunk Soap I wrote about yesterday.  

As of November 12, 2019 this is the only variety I’m selling retail.  Other varieties will no longer be sold.  

This variety puts the accent on creaminess for those who prefer a soap that delivers a bit extra moisturizing.  All of my bars come with skin-loving luxury oils, such a jojoba and coconut, and a nice big tablespoon of our own honey from our own hives, however, some formulas give just a little more in the way of caring for dry skin.  

My methods.  

I begin with a blank slate.  And I have (maybe finally) learned to keep a pen and notepad nearby to jot down what I’m adding.  I take a basic soap recipe, either a clear or white, and go from there.  I add time-honored ingredients such as glycerin, olive oil, vitamin e, pure essential oils, oatmeal, and choose from many others.

I have learned to measure – instead of winging it as I have done in the past – so I am building a nice formula file for future reference.  My soaps will be reliably the same, inasmuch as any handcrafted soap can be.  I want my customers to be able to buy the same variety and get the same results, without going “assembly line” style.  Should I grow to the point that I need to hire staff, I will train all of them to retain the same standards.  

My hub, Roger, “catching a buzz”….he’s great with the bees!

My pledge. 

Everything I put in my soaps is what I personally like to see on ingredients labels.  The oils are pure, and everything I use is of professional quality.  

Honey of course.  

We bought our first hives in February, 2018, and since then have grown quite a bit.  We will reach or exceed 100 hives in 2019, have our honey and honey products at The White City Mercantile in Ft. Pierce, Fl.  have been a vendor at one festival (sold a lot!), have now 3 golf courses, where some of our hives are placed, private labelling their honey through us, and have signed up for The Farmers Market in Tradition, Port St Lucie, Fl, beginning in November 2019.  

I’ve taken charge of the soap making and future beauty products line of our honey products.  It’s truly a labor of love – I have, at last, found my forever job.  I am that happy.  

Saving the world? 

As beekeepers, we are doing our part in just that.  There has been a decline in honey bees in the USA, and around the world as well, for many decades.  In fact, the midwest to western US states have been hit the hardest and must look to eastern states to ship honey bees to them for crop pollination.  

The humble honey bee helps feed the world – including wildlife.  And that’s about as important as it gets.  My husband, daughter and me are very proud to do something in the way of helping restore balance in the natural growth cycle of plants of all kinds on Earth.  




My entire life is about my family and building a beekeeping business with my husband- COASTAL HONEY BEES LLC in Stuart, Fl. I make skin-loving soaps using our own raw honey. Additionally: I write. Make videos from time to time. Consider offers for modeling and acting.
