Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap Recipe

Fall is closing in on us, so it seems like everywhere I look, it's pumpkin this and pumpkin that. I feel like pumpkins have completely taken over the season, ignoring any other fall flavors. Don’t get me wrong; I love a pumpkin spice latte as much as most Instagrammers do, but let’s not forget about the other fall fruit: apples. In my humble opinion, apples make for a far better fall dessert.

One of my favorite fall desserts apple crisp made with apples from our orchard.  I love the perfect blend of apples, cinnamon, and oatmeal.  Why not combine them into a soap?  And thus this apple cinnamon oatmeal melt and pour soap was born.

I got the idea for this soap last week, so I didn't want to wait for it to cure because apples would be out of season by then.  Instead, I made this soap using melt and pour soap so it would be ready to use the next day.  I used a white Crafty Bubbles soap base, but you can use any soap you'd like.  A suspension base would be a great choice, but if you don't have it on hand, keep reading to learn how to get a good pour without it.

This recipe will yield four 4-ounce bars.  If you want fewer or more bars, feel free to adjust the measurements accordingly.


Ingredients




Directions


1.  You can either purchase ground oatmeal or make your own.  I simply put about a cup of oatmeal in a blender and pulsed until it was a fine powder.  I stored the leftovers for another project.

2.  Cut the melt and pour soap into 1/2 inch to 1 inch cubes and place in a glass bowl.  Microwave 30 seconds at a time until melted.

3.  Cinnamon tends to clump when you add it to soap, but there's a trick for that.  Melt the coconut oil in a small dish.  Add the ground cinnamon and stir well.  Add the coconut oil and cinnamon to the melted soap base.


4.  Let the soap cool for about a minute.  Then add the ground oats, cinnamon essential oil, and apple fragrance oil.  Stir well.

5.  If you used a suspension base melt and pour soap, you can pour the soap into the mold right away.  Otherwise, let the hot soap cool until a film forms on the top of the soap.  Then stir well and pour into the soap mold.  This lets the soap set up slightly so the oatmeal and cinnamon won't settle to the bottom.
