This week I made my first few batches of goat milk soap.
I started with (Beekman Boys) Dr. Brent Ridge's basic unscented goat milk soap recipe which I found on Martha Stewart's website HERE. I added a few herbs, raw honey from my bees, vitamin E, and ground oats into the dark bars for me. Then I ran it through a soap calculator online just to be sure my ratios were good, and Voila! We have soap. The light colored bars contain a few drops of peppermint oil in them for my hubby.
The soap still has to cure for a few weeks to be sure the lye has cooked out, but I used to make cold process soap often- and this soap was so mild after initial processing that I was amazed.
We have soap for a year in under two hours.
