I wanted to create a soothing soap to soften and brighten skin. I immediately thought of including two breakfast staples: honey and oatmeal. Together with a goat’s milk melt and pour soap base, they create a beautiful soap that does both.
Honey Oatmeal Goat’s Milk Soap
Honey is moisturizing and makes skin “glow”. It’s been used in many skin care recipes because of the multitude of benefits it offers. I liked that it was already in my pantry and I didn’t have to hunt it down online like I do with some ingredients. My daughter eats honey on her toast for breakfast so it’s something we always have on hand.
Oatmeal is great for sensitive skin and has anti-inflammatory properties. I remember my sister suffering from eczema and my mom giving her an oatmeal bath.
