If you’re looking for a great new soap recipe for your household to use, you’ll love this Cinnamon Oatmeal Soap with Essential Oils. It’s simple and smells so good!
Is it weird to say that I love smelling soap? And not in a way where I’m running from store to store and giving them all a sniff…but more in the way that I like to make them and enjoy that fresh and clean smell throughout the longevity of the soap.
There’s just something about being able to use essential oils in my homemade soap recipes that I just really have come to love. And I can promise you this, once you use the oils to make soap once, you won’t want to go back to store-bought anything ever again. There’s just no comparison to the smell and feel of a good homemade soap.

Cinnamon Oatmeal Soap with Essential Oils
While you will need a few simple ingredients, just know it’s all worth it in the end. Plus, making this DIY soap recipe will give you 5 soaps as well!
Ingredients for Cinnamon Oatmeal Soap with Essential Oils
- ¾ pound melt & pour goats milk soap base
- 4 ounces rolled oats (ground)
- 10 drops cinnamon essential oil
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- Silicone soap mold
- Wooden stir stick
Directions for Cinnamon Oatmeal Soap with Essential Oils
Start by grinding up the oats. I use a food processor as I find that to be the easiest.
Next, take and cut the soap into 1-inch pieces. Grab the pieces and then melt the soap in the microwave for 30 seconds. Once it’s been 30 seconds, stir. If it is not completely melted at that point in time, put it back on for 10-second increments, until fully melted. After every 10 seconds, you need to be stirring each time.
Once it’s fully melted, add in the cinnamon to the soap base. Stir and mix well.
Once that is done, take and add half of the ground oats. Stir well.
At this point, once it’s been stirred well, you’re going to want to add the cinnamon essential oil. Once again, mix very well.
Once you feel that it’s been stirred up completely, take and pour into the silicone mold.
Take the remainder of the oats and pour them into the mold, making sure to evenly distribute them.
At this point, mist lightly with rubbing alcohol to help reduce bubbles.
Set it aside and let it rest for 3-4 hours.
Remove from mold. Using a straight edge scraper, you can then cut them into 2-inch cubes.
Enjoy! It’s seriously that simple!
