This weekend I had a Make and Take craft party at my house. That is where you have friends over and make simple crafts and have a good time. This DIY Lavender Oatmeal Soap was one of the crafts I came up with that was a huge hit. Here is how it is done.
DIY Lavender Oatmeal Soap

- 1 Square Silicone Mold
- 2-1 ounce pre-cut goats milk soap base or here is one not pre-scored but with less chemicals.
- 2 tsp oatmeal (I used Bob’s Red Mill Rolled Oats)
- 1 tsp lavender buds (you will have a lot left over if you buy this 1 lb bag. It seemed like the best deal to me)
- 5-8 drops Lavender Essential Oil (Buy your Young Living Premium Starter Kit from me and save $25)
Melt 2 ounces of soap base in pyrex container on 50% power for 30 seconds in the microwave. Add remaining ingredients in the order above. Pour into silicone mold and let cool. Pop out when cool and hard.
The above makes one bar of soap so multiply as necessary to fill your molds. Some of the ladies at the party used Peppermint Essential Oil instead of Lavender and those came out lovely as well. Play with it.
I really like this idea but would like a liquid,… any way you know how to do this?
I think the oatmeal would clog most liquid pumps.
I have done a few bars using lavender buds and they looked exactly like yours. I used it during shower for my body and face as the ingredients i put were jojoba oil, vco and vitamin e and they are good for skin but my skin became so dry and itchy. Do you have any idea why? I’ve been thinking that is because of the lavender buds in the soap. Probably because the lavender buds are rotten and cant last longer.
