Luxurious Oatmeal Massage Bars

I love how fast and easy this project is, but you'd never guess by the look of the bars! Yesterday, we had two ladies walk in to try their hand at our Soap Bar for the first time, and 2 pounds of soap quickly turned into six. I try to warn people-- soap making is addicting!

Here's what was used to make these gorgeous oatmeal massage bars:

Oval Massage Mold
Goats Milk Melt-and-Pour Base
Cappuccino Mica
Oatmeal, Milk and Honey fragrance
Chopped oatmeal

Simply melt and mix! Add the chopped oatmeal and stir as the soap cools slightly. This will help suspend the oats. Use 4ml of fragrance per pound of melt-and-pour soap, and for a little color, use up to 1/4 teaspoon of mica per mug of melted soap. To swirl, pour uncolored soap and colored soap into the mold at the same time. The amount of oatmeal is a personal preference. I always go by "less is more."

That's it! Simple, homemade and rustic looking-- the perfect gift easy enough for beginners to make.


  1. They look super cute for such a simple project. Nice.

  2. I use an unscented bar like this for my face. I have quit having to use harsh acne soaps and astringents and have no acne anymore. I used Brambleberry bases too. :)

  3. I've done these. They are so easy and fun to use.
