Here is how simple it is to make hot process lavender oatmeal soap with a melt and pour soap base. Full directions below.
The Lavender Oatmeal soap recipe only takes four ingredients to make. All store well for future batches and most of us already have oatmeal in our pantry anyway.
The soap can be melted right in the microwave, along with the oats and lavender flowers, then just add the essential oil and pour into molds.
This soap pairs wonderfully with my Soothing Lavender Oatmeal Bath Bombs and would make a great combo for a gift basket. Check out the bath bomb recipe .Print
Lavender Oatmeal Soap Recipe
Here is the easy recipe for this homemade lavender oatmeal soap. Your skin will feel great after using it.
9-10 ounces of melt and pour goat’s milk soap
1 tbs dried lavender flowers
1/4 cup quick cook oats
1/4 tsp lavender essential oil
- Chop the melt and pour soap into chunks and add the oats and lavender. Microwave until melted. This should only take slightly over a minute.
- Add the lavender essential oil and mix well, then pour into soap molds.
- Allow to fully cool until hard before popping out of the molds. Chilling the soap bars in the refrigerator is fine, but do not freeze.
If you like the molds I used, they actually came out of a kit I bought when I first tried making soaps. It doesn’t contain the ingredients I used here, but you could use the white soap base in it instead of goat’s milk base. All you would need then would be the lavender essential oil, flowers and oatmeal.
