homemade oatmeal soap

I wanted to share one of my favorite homemade soap is so easy

and makes such nice soap.enjoy

Oatmeal Soap
Things You'll Need:
Blender or food processor
5 tbsp. old fashioned oatmeal
1 large bar of castile soap, or other natural, mild soap ( I use Dove Soap)
Large microwaveable mixing bowl
1 tbsp. water
Wooden spoon
2 soap molds (can be cups or small bowls)
Put about 5 tbsp. of old fashioned oatmeal in a blender or food processor and grind it just until it's coarse, but not a powder.
Grate 1 large bar of castile soap, or other natural, mild soap, into a large microwaveable mixing bowl.
Add 1 tbsp. water and microwave the soap and water on high for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the mixture is warm and the soap dissolves. Don't let the mixture bubble over the edges of the mixing bowl. Stop the microwave once or twice to stir the mix and check its progress.
Stir the oatmeal gradually into the soap with a wooden spoon until the mixture reaches the consistency you want.
Pour the oatmeal soap into 2 soap molds and allow it to cool and set up.
