Oatmeal and Honey Almond Soap

This was made on the blog on January 8th, 2010.


  • 8 oz wt Shea Butter, Refined
  • 24 oz wt Olive Oil
  • 48 oz wt Palm Kernel Oil
  • 48 oz wt Palm Oil
  • 17.7 oz wt Lye (sodium hydroxide)
  • 48 fluid oz herbal tea
  • Oatmeal
  • 1 fl oz Honey Almond Fragrance Oil


Make herbal tea as for drinking. I like to use Chamomile Buds. Measure and set aside.

Grind oatmeal to a fine flour. Measure 1/4 cup. Set aside.

Measure oils on your scale. Warm on the stove or in the mircowave. Bring temperature to near 120 F. Exact temperature is not critical.

Add sodium hydroxide to the herbal tea. Mix well. Allow to cool to near 120 F. Exact temperature is not critical.

Combine oils and lye solution. Stir until thin trace. Add 1/4 cup oatmeal flour. Adding the oatmeal slowly while continuously stirring will help prevent lumping. Stir out any lumps. Upon trace add the Honey Almond Fragrance Oil. Stir well. Pour soap into molds.

Allow to sit until soap is firm. Depending on the depth of the mold this will happen in 6 to 36 hours. Deeper molds allow for faster firming.

Cut into bars. Stack to allow good air circulation. Allow to cure for several days before using. Longer curing will result in a harder bar.

Notes & Comments:

This bar has a good fragrance with gentle exfoliating from the oatmeal. Color will be creamy. The bar will be hard.
