Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  2. Using a soap slicer, cut oatmeal soap into 1-2 inch pieces. The soap slicer is dull and perfect for this project. Do not use a knife as it is very sharp and the soap is slippery. The knife could slip causing injury.
  3. Place oatmeal soap in a double boiler. Heat slowly and avoid burning.
  4. Add fragrance oil. Stir thoroughly. Set aside.
  5. Place cubes of clear soap in a plastic beaker and heat in microwave for 10 seconds or until fully melted. Color with blue color.
  6. Fill plastic dropper with blue soap. Using the filled plastic dropper, squeeze a small amount of liquid blue soap into anchor area of mold. Allow to fully cool.
  7. When oatmeal soap has cooled to 130ºF. Spritz blue anchor with a fine mist of rubbing alcohol. Carefully ladel oatmeal soap into mold.
  8. Spritz top of soap with rubbing alcohol. (This will pop bubbles and give a smooth surface to the soap)
  9. Allow soap to naturally re-harden.
  10. To un-mold, place mold (with soap in it) in freezer for 20 minutes. When the mold returns to room air, it will expand as it warms and the soap will drop out. For really hard to un-mold soap, run warm water over the back of the mold.
  11. The soap is ready to use after unmolding. If you plan to sell your soap, wrap it immediately. Options are plastic wrap, shrink wrap or cello bags. Proper packaging keeps the fragrance strong. Don't forget to label the soap to complete the package. Label according to FDA cosmetic label guidelines.
