Goats Milk Soap
I recently made a small batch of some organic goats milk soap that was fairly easy to make, so I thought I would share the recipe here, in case you want to try it yourself. There is also a small video on my Facebook page for reference.
I purchased a 2lb batch of organic goats milk soap off of Amazon that I really liked. The ingredient list was small and the reviews from previous users were great, so I thought I'd give it a try...it was great! Once you find the soap base that you like, it's time to consider your other ingredients. I chose dried lavender for one recipe and steel cut oats for a second one. I like my soap to have texture so it exfoliates while using it.
Here are the directions:
1. Cut the soap into small cubes, for easier melting. Melt the soap base with a double boiler method (I used a glass bowl on top of a boiling pot of water) in 1lb batches.
2. Once the soap is melted, remove from heat and stir in your textured ingredients. My first batch was dried organic lavender and the second was organic steel cut oats. I used a little more than 1/2 cup, which was a good amount, although a little less would still be fine. I wouldn't use any more.
3. After your textured ingredients are mixed thoroughly, add your essential oils. I use Young Living. Add about 25-30 drops total for whatever mixture you plan on using. With the lavender soap, I used 8 drops of lavender oil and 20 drops of lemon. With the oats, I used 25 drops of frankincense.
4. Pour into your molds and let sit for 4-5 hours.
