Please note: If you do not have the rectangle mold I used, that is fine! You can use any mold you like and get the same layered effect. If so, you may need to adjust the amount of soap you use.


Instructions for Beach Layered Soap Bars:

Layer One
Step 1: Add 10 cubes of the clear soap base, coconut oil and shea butter to one microwave safe bowl. Melt in 30 second intervals, stirring after each until it is completely melted.

Step 2: Place your thermometer in the soap mixture bowl. The temperature needs to be between 125-130 degrees. This is because when the temperature is higher, the soap mixture is thinner, and the oats will sink to the bottom of the mold. Sprinkle a bit of oats in the bottom of the soap mold. When the mixture is the right temperature, add the remainder of the oats and gently stir them in.

Step 3: Pour mixture into soap mold.

Step 4: Spray top of mixture with rubbing alcohol. Allow to harden at least 30 minutes. You know you can pour the next layer if you blow on the soap and it doesn’t ripple.
