Homemade Peppermint Orange Oat Soap!

 Homemade Soap Bars!
This was so easy and quick to make!
There's still time to make some for Christmas gifts!

and a soap mold!
 I decided on a mild peppermint and orange with
some oats for exfoliating...plus they are so cool looking!
(peppermint makes a nice tingly hand soap...but I would shower with it)
 I started with 1/4 of the soap base and cut it into blocks.
It's very soft and cuts easily.

 Melt it slowly in the microwave...30 seconds at a time, then stir.
Then I added about 5 drops of Peppermint and
 10 drops of Orange essential oil.

 I sprinkled oats in the bottom of the mold
 and then poured the soap on top.

Then I put the mold in the fridge for a quick set up.
 I wrapped them with paper and twine...
They smell divine!  And perfect gift for the person that has everything!
 I'm excited to make some more!

Did you have any problem with your soap sticking to the mold? My mom seems to have that happen a lot & I just wondered if you had any ideas?
