Oatmeal Soap Balls recipe:
1 cup instant oatmeal
1 bar mild soap, such as Ivory or Pure & Natural
4-5 Tablespoons of water
10 drops essential oil or fragrance…(oil safe for skin)
Place the soap in a ziplock bag and break up with a hammer. Then grate oatmeal or use a mini-processor, but don’t make it into a flour. Put into a bowl. Do the same with the soap.
Add the water (and scent) and blend well. Shape into balls and put on wax paper to dry.
Balls can be put into containers, wrapped with cellophane or plastic wrap and tied with raffia. A gift tag added to the raffia is a nice touch also.
*Oatmeal is great for exfoliating the skin and leaving it smooth and refreshed.
