This DIY Cinnamon & Oatmeal Easy Soap Recipe is so simple to make. Using a melt and pour soap base that contains clean ingredients. And because it is all plant based, it is Vegan friendly too.
For a long time I have used Goat Milk melt and pour soap bases. But have been slowly moving to more plant based products.
And this soap base is pretty incredible.
Using Cinnamon and Oatmeal in a Bar Soap
There are many benefits to adding cinnamon and oatmeal to a homemade soap recipe.
Oatmeal exfoliates the skin naturally. It helps to reduce skin irritation and itching. I find it to be perfect for my little ones and for my sensitive skin!
Cinnamon has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
However, some people may be sensitive to the effects of cinnamon on the skin. Test a small amount out first if you’re unsure if you have this sensitivity.
I use such a small amount in this soap, you could easily omit it and just make the soap base alone.
How to Make this Easy Soap Recipe
What I really like about using a melt and pour soap is that is simple to make. Using lye in a homemade soap bar needs special safety processes.
I have little ones at home and it is just too risky for me.
The process for making this soap is as easy as setting up a double boiler, melting the soap base, and pouring the liquid into the soap molds.
It also only takes a couple of hours to cool unlike a completely from scratch soap, which takes weeks to cure.
