This recipe was kindly sent to us by the lovely Kate from  Ebright Energy. She used the fabulous Sunflair® solar oven to make these.

For those who prefer to use a more conventional method, replace the silicon pots with regular pots and melt on a low to medium heat on the stove. Take special care as the melted soap will become very hot.


Oats and honey are used in skincare products to help reduce inflammation and soothe dry and itchy skin. The oats are also a great exfoliator.

  • 1 lb (450 g) goat’s milk melt and pour soap base from craft store, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons finely ground oats
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Whole oats for sprinkling on top
  • Spray bottle with rubbing alcohol

Preheat Sunflair® solar oven to 120-125 deg F (50 deg C). (Remember, you can melt your soap base on the stove instead if you prefer.)

You will be using both silicone pots for this. Cut the goat’s milk soap base into cubes and place 12 oz (350 g) in one silicone pot, and 4 oz (100 g) in the other. Cover and place in oven for about 5 minutes. Stir and repeat until completely melted.

Once the 12 oz (350 g) of soap base is melted, combine ground oatmeal and honey. Spray with rubbing alcohol to remove air bubbles. Add a dusting of cinnamon on the surface. Let the top cool a little to the touch. Now, add the melted 4 oz (100 g ) goat’s milk soap base and sprinkle with whole oats.

Let cool completely before removing and cutting.
