Oatmeal Raisin Goat’s Milk Soap
I’m in love with the scent of this Oatmeal Raisin Goat’s Milk Soap. It smells so good, you almost want to eat it. But don’t. Just use it for washing your skin!
It’s super easy to make with a melt and pour soap base you can buy from your local craft store or online via Amazon. I buy mine at Michael’s and try to use a coupon when I do. I bought my last one at 55% off. It was a sweet deal.
I mixed the oats, raisins and cinnamon in a bowl first and then covered the bottom of the silicone soap mold. I find the soap has a smoother consistency when I do this. It will spread out on its own after you pour the soap into the mold. However, I still add the essential oil to the soap mixture. I don’t find essential oils change the texture like some ingredients can.
This soap also makes a wonderful homemade gift idea. Package it in some pretty twine and paper for gift giving. My family loves receiving my homemade soap. And yes, they do receive quite a few “gifts” from me because I make it so often!
