Oatmeal Honey soap recipe

OATMEAL MILK HONEY SOAP

Our version really doesn’t have a fragrance but it feels wonderful on the skin. Personally, I think it smells like pound cake — everyone else says, “I don’t smell anything”. Many of our customers with eczema swear by this soap. For a more interesting and textured look, sprinkle whole oats onto the top of the soap right after pouring into the mold.

10 ounces olive oil
10 ounces coconut oil
24 ounces soybean shortening
13.5 ounces water
6.2 ounces lye
3 ounces cow’s milk
4 teaspoons powdered oatmeal
2 teaspoons powdered or regular honey

The benefits of oats have been used throughout history for more than four thousand years. The primary reason why oats do such a good job of soothing the skin is a component found inside the oat called polysaccharides, which become gelatin-like when introduced to water. This creates a protective coating on the surface of the skin.

When using oats to sooth problems such as bee stings, it is much better to grind the oats in a coffee grinder first, as the powdered version works more quickly.

All three soothing ingredients from nature: oatmeal, milk and honey create a super soothing bar of soap.

Tangerine honey soap recipe

TANGERINE HONEY SOAP

This recipe smells really wonderful in the shower but you can’t let it sit too long before cutting it into bars. Something about all the citrus in the recipe makes the loaf become really hard after twenty-four hours. If you find that you would like to anchor the tangerine scent a little more, try replacing half of the sweet orange essential oil with patchouli.

24 ounces soybean shortening
10 ounces olive oil
10 ounces coconut oil
13.5 ounces water
6.2 ounces lye
2 ounces tangerine orange essential oil
1 ounce sweet orange essential oil
¼ teaspoon yellow oxide
¼ teaspoon red oxide
1 teaspoon powdered or regular honey
