Frankincense and Myrrh Soap Balls

Ingredients:

8 drops Frankincense
12 drops Myrrh Sweet
1 tsp Apricot Carrier Oil
1 tbsp finely ground oatmeal
1 tbsp honey
4 fl. ounces water
9 ounces of pure, unscented soap
Cheese grater (fine)
double boiler with a ceramic insert to evenly disperse gentle heat
Wooden Spoon
Dried herbs (optional)

Grate the soap with a fine cheese grater. Place the soap in the double boiler with the water. Gently heat over a low least. Gradually the mixture will form a thick and fairly sticky paste. When the soap has melted, add the honey, oatmeal, oil and dried herbs (optional) and mix in well. Transfer to a clean bowl and then add in the essential oils. Mix very thoroughly! Have a bowl of water on hand to wet your hands. Then take a small handful of the mixture and mold into round balls. You will be able to make approximately 2 large balls or 5 or so of the smaller ones. Place on a sheet of grease-proof paper and leave it to harden for a week or so. Or you can put the mixture in a shaped mold!
