Petite Batch of Oatmeal, Milk & Honey Soap

I made a petite batch of OMH soap for one of my best friends. Isn't is just adorable? I made a 1-pound loaf and it fit perfectly in a plastic container that I saved after the lunchmeat was gone. (I promise I washed out the container before soaping!) There is ground-up oatmeal throughout the loaf and a dusting of oats on the top. It smells divine!

Dill Pickle Kitchen Soap - cut photos

I should've waited until tomorrow morning to cut the loaf, but I was impatient. Here are a few photos...

I love the color and the scent is not too strong and very fresh! Unfortunately, I think I will have to wait to test out the soap. It seemed a little too soft for me to get the exfoliation effect. I hope I put enough "scrubbies" in to make it a good kitchen soap!

I cut the bars pretty big - about 1 1/2" thick. They're all weighing in a little under 7 ounces. I was thinking of cutting them in half, but then they would be too small. I think I need to invest in a custom cutter for 1" bars.

Dill Pickle Kitchen Soap

This is my 1st CP soap in a long time - definitely since before the wedding! I've been interested in making a kitchen soap because I am in dire need of one. After playing with Pebble outside, my hands are covered in dirt and liquid soap is just not cutting it.

This is my 1st time using MANGO BUTTER and SILK! I am anxiously waiting for this soap to cure so I can feel the silky, smooth texture and creaminess. In addition to the previous ingredients, I also used castor, coconut, olive, palm, colorant, fragrance, poppy seeds, and apricot kernel powder.

Scented with Dill Pickle FO!
