Goat Milk & Honey Soap with Oatmeal

I used 2lbs total of soap to make these soaps in the Milky Way Bee with Honeycomb molds. I got nine soaps, so I filled all 4 cavities of 2 trays and 1 cavity of a third tray. You can use any molds or even a 12 inch drawer organizer, which holds 2lbs exactly.
Melt 1.5 lbs of Goat Milk melt & pour. In a separate container melt .5 lbs of Honey melt & pour. You want both soaps melted at the same time. Fragrance the melted Goat Milk soap. I used 1 tsp each of Lavender and Litsea Cubeba essential oils, I'm intending this to be a Gardeners Bar. Stir a handful of oatmeal into the Goat Milk soap after you fragrance it.
Now start to fill your molds with the Goat Milk soap stirring gently as you pour, you want to get some of the oatmeal into each soap, you may even have to spoon a bit of it in. Leave a little space at the top of each mold for the honey soap. Quickly top off each bar with the melted Honey soap. It will sink to the bottom of the mold and carry some of the oatmeal with it. These soaps will all be a little different when you unmold them, or mine were anyway, but they all look really neat. Thanks for looking!
