One of my favourite scrubbies to soap with are Steel Cut Oats.  These are not available everywhere, but you should be able to find them at your local wholefoods or bulk ingredients store.  If you can't find them, use another exfoliant, or for less scrub you can use a regular oatmeal.  Steel Cut Oats are chunky, and a pale golden colour, which is perfect for a golden coloured soap.

This soap can be used as a regular skin nourishing exfoliator, or as a garden scrub soap. If your batch of Infused Calendula Oil is pale in colour, which does occur due to seasonal variations in the flowers, you can add some natural Annatto Colourant to deepen that golden colour.  This batch is scented with the delicious Energy Fragrance, which is citrussy, fresh, and uplifting - just delish! 

What you need:


  • All your regular Cold Process Soap making equipment including Safety Gear including Goggles and Gloves
  • 2 x 1 litre jugs
  • Spatula, stick blender, and your usual soapy equipment
  • Small sieve or tea strainer
  • Brush if using mica
  • 12 Bar Silicone Rectangle Mould
  • Large tray or baking sheet to stand the silicone mould on


If you are a beginner, we recommend you make a few batches before attempting this soap due to the hot gel.   For how to make soap from Scratch, please see our Cold Process Soapmaking Instructions.  You can also watch Soap Queen's You Tube Series on Cold Process Soapmaking.

Hemp, Calendula and Lanolin Cold Process Soap

  • Set up work bench and measure all the ingredients.
  • Place the silicone mould onto the tray so you can tap the mould firmly on the bench during pouring.
  • Mix the Titanium Dioxide, if using, in a teaspoon of oil and set aside.
  • Set aside the pumice and steel cut oats and bring soap to light trace, don't forget to add the Sodium Lactate Plus.

  •  Divide lightly traced soap into two even portions in separate jugs.

  • Add the steel cut oats to one of the jugs and also half of the fragrance.
  • Use the balloon whisk to manually stir these through thoroughly.

  • This will bring the soap to a nice medium trace, and then pour or spoon into the mould cavities.

  • As the silicone mould is sitting on the tray, tap this firmly onto the work bench to even out the surface and remove any trapped air bubbles.
  • Using the sieve, sprinkle the surface of the soaps with a thin layer of ground pumice.  This absorbs moisture and leaves a darker, but subtle line on the finished soaps.

  •  Add the Titanium Dioxide and the remainder of the Energy fragrance to the second jug of traced soap, and stir to combine well, and then finish filling the mould.
