Organic soap recipes vary according to personal preference and tastes, but all the recipes consist of a soap base combined with organic and all-natural ingredients. Ingredients like oatmeal soothe and exfoliate rough skin, while goat milk adds a natural cleanser and treats acne. Making your own organic soap bars can turn into a fun hobby or even a business if you master the basics of soap making.

Cut the melt-and-pour soap into 13-mm (1/2-inch) cubes. Place the cubes in a microwave-safe bowl.

Microwave the soap base for 1 minute. Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir until no chunks of the soap base exist.

Place the oatmeal in a coffee grinder and grind it into a fine texture.

Mix 30 ml of fragrance oil with the oatmeal. Add the oatmeal to the melted soap.

Add 240 ml of goat milk and 150 ml of coconut oil. Stir until all the ingredients blend well.

Pour the soap into soap moulds.

Pour rubbing alcohol into a spray bottle. Spray the top of the soap with the alcohol to keep air bubbles from forming on the soap.

Allow the soap to harden completely. Remove the soap from the moulds, and allow it to cure for two weeks before using.
