Rustic Soap Balls
Saturday, August 2, 2008

These soap balls are so fun make. They can easily be made using
either ivory or dove soap bars. They have the look and feel of old soap.

For a more grungy looking soap ball roll them in spices such as
cinnamon or pie spice before they are completely set. Do not use
the soaps if you grunge them up, as your skin may have an allergic
reaction to the spices- use for display only.

Here is what you will need:

1 cup of instant Quaker oatmeal
1 bar of ivory or dove soap
1/4 cup of water

Here's what to do:

Finely grind the oatmeal in a food processor but do not
grind to a flour texture. You want it chopped up enough to
just break up the oatmeal flakes--kinda chunky--you want to
actually SEE the chunks in the soap.

Next, grate the bar of soap into small slivers
Add the soap and water into a large microwavable bowl.
Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes. Stir the mixture once or
twice making sure it does not bubble over

When the soap is dissolved remove from the microwave and add the
ground oatmeal slowly stirring constantly

Let cool enough to touch then form into balls placing on wax
paper to set and dry. It will take about 2 hours for them to
set.

Oatmeal is great for exfoliating the skin! These balls would look
great in vintage jars or a basket on your counter. You could even
wrap them up in cellophane and tie off with homespun. Great
stocking stuffers at Christmas!
