Rebecca’s Best Ever Handmade Unscented Goat Milk Soap Recipe
36 fluid oz. distilled water
15 oz. lye (sodium hydroxide)
This recipe uses three of my wooden soap molds and will yield 30-36 bars depending on how you cut them.
To make this soap you will need to follow your basic cold process soapmaking instructions, taking all necessary safety precautions and weighing your ingredients – soapmaking oils, butters and lye.
To incorporate the goats milk powder, you will need to follow my article on How to Make Goats Milk Soap the Easy Way. Once your melted soapmaking oils and lye-water have cooled, you will measure out and add the goats milk powder and colloidal oatmeal to your cooled oils BEFORE you add the lye-water. Use your stick (immersion) blender to mix thoroughly. Once these ingredients have dissolved, then you can mix in the lye-water.
At trace, pour the soap into your lined molds, then cover and insulate for 24 hours. If you wish to use a fragrance, you can add up to 6 oz. of fragrance oil or up to 3 oz. of essential oils at trace. Once you unmold your soaps, cut into bars, and allow soaps to cure for a minimum of three weeks before using.
