Orange Oatmeal Breakfast Salt Bar


Did you miss the Cocoa and Coffee Salt Bar or the African Black Soap Salt Bar?  Be sure to check them out for more details about why I love salt bars and how to make them.  This is simply another variation that I love.

Because they set up fast and hard, I prefer to do salt bars in individual cavity molds. My favorite salt bar shape, and a way to make them unique and different than my regular bar soap, is a half round /half cylinder shape. This mold from Bramble Berry is absolutely perfect.

    Just stumbled across your blog, its great! Just wondering if you could make salt bars in log form and then cut, and if so how long to let it set before cutting? Thanks, Joy

    Bitter almond eo is highly toxic, i was told to never use it for my soap. It does not irritate your skin?

    Lovely! I’m curious as to how the oatmeal affected the lather in the salt soaps? I haven’t done a salt bar yet, but I’ve heard that the lather is really creamy. I can imagine that the addition of the oatmeal made for a very decadent feel. Your recipe sounds like it would smell AMAZING!

    Ooh this looks amazing! Since I can’t get almond, should I just replace that with more orange? or could I sub peru balsam?
