|My First Pure Goat's Milk Soap - No water used|
|Jackie's First Handmade Soap|
Congratulations Jackie for making your first handmade soap using only goat's milk for liquid.
Thank you Jackie very much for Snoopy's milk. I get to try doing all goat's milk soap without investing too much on it.
Meet "Snoopy", she likes snooping, Jackie said "it is because she is always checking my sleeves for mysteries. May have treats, maybe not. She doesn't know but she checks them".
This is our set-up, an ice water bath to prevent the sugars in the milk from scorching. It is always better to use cold almost slushy or even frozen milk with this recipe so the milk don't get too hot when you add the lye. Usually I only do half milk or cream and let the lye dissolved in water first and then allow it to cool down before adding the milk/cream. This is my first full goat's milk no water added to this batch.
|Jackie decided to incorporate oatmeal and poppy seed to her batch.|
|I kept mine plain.|
We did not use any fragrance or essential oils for this batch. This batch include only olive oil, coconut oil, goat's milk and lye. As you can see in the above pictures, I kept my soap plain and Jackie decided to add oatmeal and poppy seed to hers to give that pretty texture.
While the moms were making cold process goat's milk soap. Jackie's kids also made melt and pour soap. Look at how cute they turned out. They used orange/lemon zest and food coloring to add color and texture to the final product.
Here is the video of our goat's milk soap making using facetime session. Hopefully we can do this side by side next time.
