Gentle Oatmeal Soap Project
These bars are topped with real oats and scented with Golden Oats Fragrance Oil.
6 Cavity Square Silicone Mold
16 oz. Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap Base
0.3 oz. Golden Oats Fragrance Oil
0.3 oz. Vanilla Color Stabilizer
99% Isopropyl Alcohol in Spray Bottle
Chop 16 ounces of Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap Base into small, uniform cubes. Place them in a heat-safe container and melt in the microwave using 30 second bursts.
Add 0.3 ounces of Golden Oats Fragrance Oil and 0.3 ounces of Vanilla Color Stabilizer to prevent discoloration. Mix completely.
Pour the soap into each cavity of the mold until they're about 90% full. Save a small amount to top off each cavity. Allow the soap in the mold to cool and harden slightly - about 5-10 minutes. It needs to develop a slight skin to support the oats on top.
Reheat the remaining soap using 3-5 second bursts. Sprinkle a small amount of oats on top of each cavity, spritz with 99% isopropyl alcohol, and pour the remaining melted soap into each cavity. After each pour, spray with 99% isopropyl alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Sprinkle on more oats if you like.
Allow the soap to fully cool and harden for about 3-4 hours. Remove from the mold and enjoy!
