Use a double boiler or microwave to melt butter. Take care not to overheat butter. As soon as all sold pieces are melted remove from heat source.   Step 2 Measure all dry ingredients. Blend them together in a food processor. Do not over grind mixture, you do not want a powdery consistency. Just grind into smaller bits.   Step 3 Use a silicone baking dish or soap mold to shape your bars. Pour your dry ingredients into a rubber silicone dish 1&#47;2 to 3&#47;4 of the way full. The more dry ingredients you add, the more exfoliating the bar will be! If you want a less exfoliating bar, add less of the dry mix.    Step 4  Pour oil mixture over mixture. Avoid filling to the very top of dish. It&#39;s difficult to move without spilling oil if mixture is too full. Pour on a solid surface that can be moved with ease.   Step 5 Allow mixture to air dry or add to the freezer or refridgerator until solid.  Remove your exfoliating bars from dish and enjoy.   (KTRK Photo)</span></div>
