This almond oatmeal soap smells amazing! It is an easy homemade soap to make, perfect for any skin type, you’re sure to love it!
If you’ve been hanging out with me here on the blog for awhile you probably already know how much I love homemade bath and beauty products!
I started with homemade lip balm and from there ventured into bath salts, bath bombs…. all.the.things.
Recently I’ve ventured into soap. I love homemade soap! I love how lovely it smells, how I can control the ingredients that are going into it, and how I can make big batches to have it on hand whenever we need it.
I was ordering homemade soap from a local girl who makes awesome soaps, I still order her charcoal soap because it is amazing. Her variety inspired me to try some of my own!
I started with my oatmeal and honey soap, and this one is similar but it has the addition of almond scent. I absolutely love almond scented products (although it smells nothing like actual almonds) and I knew making soap with it would be a win!
You can find the supplies for this soap on Amazon which makes it even easier. Seriously, can we just take a moment to be thankful for how much time Amazon Prime saves us?
Anyway, onto the instructions!
Here is how you make this almond oatmeal soap
- ¾ pound melt & pour goats milk soap base
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 20 drops almond fragrance oil
- Oval silicone mold
- Large Pyrex measuring cup
- Wooden stir stick
- Rubbing alcohol in spray bottle (optional)
First you’ll want to melt the soap in your Pyrex measuring cup. Just pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. If it is not completely melted, put it back in the microwave for 10-second increments, until fully melted.
With your oats you can either add them whole or pulse them in a food processor to roughly chop them. I like to chop mine a little.
Either way you prefer add the rolled oats to the soap base and stir well.
Now add in the fragrance oil. Mix thoroughly to make sure the oats and fragrance are well distributed.
Now it is time to pour it into the silicone mold.
Once it is all poured you can spray the soaps lightly with rubbing alcohol, to help prevent bubbles from forming.
Now let them harden for at least an hour. I usually leave mine overnight… just to be extra sure they are good and solid. It really doesn’t take that long though!
Once they are solid you can remove them from the mold and store in an air tight container. These make a great gift for Mother’s day, teacher gifts, new moms… anyone in your life who would feel special and pampered by a beautiful, wonderful smelling homemade soap. They are also great to make and pamper yourself!!
