Today we made soap! But not just any soap. Goat's Milk Soap! I was afraid. Very afraid to try this. I have a friend who used to make soap all the time and sell it but she was never successful with making goat's milk soap so I figured if she couldn't do it than I shouldn't even try it. BUT, I'm trying to cut out all the "Should not's" in my life or at least some of them so herewe went. My daughter was here to help. I bought goat's milk in a can because I have no source for fresh raw milk.
Half the batch I left with no scent so I could maybe make hand milled soap with it later or incase there are some that can't have fragrance, like my grandson. In the other half I added Ylang Ylang and vanilla. Love those two together. Hope it smells good because the goat's milk didn't smell too good while mixing together. This was expected according to the sources on the internet.
Used a hand blender to bring it to trace. That's when it thickens up and gets like pudding.
This is half the batch. I'm stirring in the essential oils.
This is half poured into one mold. This one is not scented. Sorry didn't get a picture of the second mold. I will take more pics when I unmold it and cut it up. It wasn't as hard as I thought and I WILL MAKE THIS AGAIN! So glad I did it.
Til we meet again,
