Lemon Oatmeal Soap:

Ingredients 

8 oz Melt & Pour Soap (I used Cocoa Butter)
1/4 Cup Ground Oatmeal
40 Drops Lemon Essential Oil

Directions

  1. Melt & Pour soap in a double boiler over low medium heat (watching to make sure the water never boils)
  2. Once fully melted, stir in Ground Oatmeal and drop in essential oils
  3. Stir to combine and pour into molds

*Tip: If using plastic molds instead of silicone, pop in the freezer once hardened for about 5-10 minutes and they should come right out.

Weigh 8 ounces Melt & Pour soap in the top of your double-boiler or a small bowl.
