Creamy Milk and Honey Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap


  • 2 lbs of Goat’s Milk Soap Base
  • 1/2 cup of Old Fashioned Oats not instant and preferably organic (run through food processor for finer grain)
  • 5-6 teaspoons of fragrance oil optional


  1. Prepare your double boiler
  2. (don’t use a bowl or pan you’re going to use for food, this should be soap dedicated only)
  3. Put your molds on a cookie sheet (cover to protect from spills)
  4. Cut the soap base into chunks
  5. Slowly melt the chunks in your double boiler – you don’t want to scald your base
  6. Remove from heat and quickly mix your oatmeal and fragrance oil into the melted base
  7. You’re going to love the pleasant exfoliant the oatmeal offers in these bars
  8. Pour into molds, nearly to the top
  9. Spray, generously, with the rubbing alcohol to prevent air bubbles
  10. Allow bars to harden for a few hours – if you’re in a hot climate you can pop them in the fridge for an hour to speed this up.
  11. Once completely hardened pop them out of the molds and store in air-tight containers.
  12. They are ready to use immediately, unlike hot or cold processed soaps the require curing for several weeks.
