I made some oatmeal soap and it's wonderful! I think next time I will crush up the oatmeal a little more 'cause it can be kind of scratchy. Here's a pic 'cause I'm addicted to my camera.

Those look lovely.  I love using oatmeal soap.  Sloughs the ol' dead skin off and moisturizes at the same time, can't beat that!  Did you scent them?

I shredded some Dove soap, so it was already scented. I wasn't sure what to add to it, so I left it be. Smiley

If I may ask, how did you make it? I have been looking everywhere for oatmeal soap but it seems near impossible to find, and when I do find some it costs a fortune.

I used a cheese grater on two bars of Dove soap, and then I put about a cup of oatmeal into the food processor (I started by cutting it into smaller pieces with a steak knife but it was taking forever, hehe) ground it up until it was fairly fine (I'll make sure it's finer next time, though. The pieces I used with this batch were about a 4th of the original size of an oat), I then melted the soap in the microwave and mixed in the oats, and put it in the molds. That's about it. As a side note, I used oatmeal that wasn't instant, I'm honestly not sure if it would make a different, but I didn't want it turning into sludge when I put it in the melted soap.

Hope that makes sense, if it doesn't let me know and I'll try to explain. Smiley
