This is a kid safe project (as you can see by my assistant Igor), and the results are kid safe. And what parent doesn't love things that will get your kids in the tub?
Step 1: Gather ingredients
- 1/2 cup Shea butter, cocoa butter, mango butter (any solid at room temp fruit or nut butter).For this project I used Shea butter.
*6 tbsp Oatmeal (any kind is fine.)
*1/2 cup baking soda (Sodium bicarbonate /sodium hydrogen carbonate / NaHCO3)
*1 teaspoon chocolate fragrance oil. (Or any fragrance oil...essential oils may require much less, depending on the EO used.)
*Something to use as a mold. This batch is about perfect for filling a standard ice cube tray.
Step 2: Grind oatmeal and add dry ingredients
Whatever method you use, you want the oatmeal to be ground fine enough to be kind of fluffy.
Then add each of the other dry ingredients, mixing well between additions.
After all the dry ingredients have been added, blend well.
Step 3: Melt butter and add fragrance
Once the oils are melted, stir in the fragrance oil.
