I got this from a booklet I purchased when I was going through my soap making phase. It is a great soap to make as give aways for the holidays!!! Just use candy molds to make minature soaps. Cooking time is set time.

Cinnamon oil is known to help soothe the pain in tired muscles as the famous esthetician Susie Galvez says. And that got me eager to try this recipe. I used hot boiling water to speed up the melting process, but it still was getting on my nerves as it was taking too long}. So, what I did was to allow the water to get really boiling and then for about 5-7 minutes, I stirred the soap mixture [i.e., the grated soap, 1/4 cup distilled water and 1/4 cup powdered milk} that was in a smaller pot, over this pot of boiling water.Thereafter, when I got tired and it was just not melting as soon as it should've, I dipped the smaller pot into the larger pot:) That REALLY SPEEDED up the melting process! Remember to keep stirring the mixture even when it is dipped into the larger pot:) In the larger pot, I used 3 cups of water. I let the soap set for 24 hours before unmolding and using. This is good and I'll make more of these!!!
