I did it! I made Soap.......
I love learning new things, even at my age. Better late than never right...
Above is my goat's milk soap made with lard and coconut oil, the lard produced and rendered right on this farm.
It has chamomile flecks and a light grapefruit fragrance.
This is an olive oil and coconut oil based soap with a coconut and lemon grass scent. It smells light, fresh and heavenly. I'm pretty well hooked on this soapmaking thing. I could enjoy making soap in the winter and make enough to last my family all summer.
Just beginner soaps nothing fancy. I collected the supplies through out the year as they went on sale. A mixing wand, some essential and fragrance oils here and there, many at a reduced price. I saved milk cartons as molds. And most importantly I researched, I watched videos and tutorials and I learned. For a mold I just recycled some cardboard milk cartons. I made this cold pour and still have enough goats milk for one more batch in the freezer. Thanks Terri at Our Crazy Farm for the goats milk recipe and the tutorial.
