Submitted By:

Has a light earthy smell to it, works wonderfully.


1 lb. unscented clear glycerine melt & pour base
1 1/2tsp. ground cinnamon, divided
10 drops sweet orange essential oil
5 drops lavender essential oil
1 drop rosemary essential oil
1 tsp. sunflower oil


Combine essential oils and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon in glass mixing bottle, set aside. Cut melt & pour soap into 1 inch cubes, place into top of double boiler. Heat over low-medium heat until beginning to melt. Sprinkle cinnamon evenly over soap, stirring gently, being careful to avoid over stirring. Continue melting until soap is completely melted, remove from heat and immediately add sunflower oil, and essential oil blend, stirring gently. Pour into prepared molds. Let set for 5-6 hours or overnight, gently remove soap from molds, cut into slices if necessary, and store in a cool, dry, dark place for at least 1 week, flipping bars daily to prevent warping. Should make an amber colored soap with a darker layer where the cinnamon settles, like an amber sunset.
