1lbof Plant Based Oatmeal Melt & Pour Soap Base
1 - 1 ½teaspoonsof Ground Cinnamon
Set up a double boiler on the stove top with about an inch or two of water in the bottom pot. Use a large glass bowl that will just rest over the top of the pot without falling into the water. Bring the water to a low boil.
Divide the soap base in half. The base comes in a two pound size and for this recipe, we are only using 1 pound.
Add the soap base to the top of the double boiler and allow to melt slowly. To speed up the process, cut up the soap base prior to adding it to the double boiler.
Once soap is completely melted, add in the ground cinnamon, if using. Mix well.
Remove the double boiler from heat. Immediately (and very carefully) ladle the melted soap to the silicone soap molds.
If using additional oatmeal, use about 1 tablespoon or so. And grind with a spice grinder until desired consistency is reached. Then sprinkle the ground oatmeal over the soap bars before it dries. You can also mix it into the liquid for a smoother exterior soap bar.
Allow the soap bars to cool compeltely over a couple of hours before removing them from the molds.
