Homemade Soap Recipe - Handmade Honey, Oatmeal and Banana Cold Process Soap Recipe with Goat Milk

Everyone loves homemade oatmeal, milk and honey soaps. But why not try it with a twist? My new homemade soap recipe for making cold process Honey, Oatmeal and Banana Soap combines raw local honey, whole oats and pureed banana in combination with goat milk powder for a sensational, homemade soap. An oatmeal stout fragrance oil offers a twist on the classic fragrance while still hinting at everyone’s favorite traditional oatmeal, milk and honey scent.

Calendula & Goat Milk Facial Scrub Recipe for Sensitive Skin

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

2.5 oz. goat milk powder
2.5 oz. colloidal oatmeal
2.5 oz. baking soda
1 oz. apricot kernel meal
.2 oz. calendula petals, finely ground

Directions:

You can typically find powdered goat milk in the baking section of your grocery store. Colloidal oatmeal is typically in the pharmacy section.

To create this natural facial scrub recipe for sensitive skin you’ll need to begin by weighing out the calendula petals using a digital scale. Next, grind the calendula petals in a coffee grinder or food processor.

Now weigh out all of the remaining ingredients using a scale and combine with the ground calendula petals in a large bowl. Mix well. Then spoon into air tight containers for storage.

To use your homemade facial scrub, simply remove a small amount of the scrub from the container and mix with just enough water, honey or favorite carrier oil (up to one Tablespoon) to form a paste. (For extra dry or mature skin, try mixing this scrub with shea nut oil or rosehip seed oil.) Then apply to facial skin in a circular motion for up to one minute. Alternately, you can use this scrub as a mask by applying and letting set for 5-10 minutes. Rinse with water to remove and pat dry. Store your scrub in a cool dry location.

Goat Buttermilk & Honey Soap

By Susanne
A lot of people use goat milk in their soap or butter milk and I happened to walk into some goat buttermilk at the supermarket… That I had to try!
For this soap I used
575 g (57,5%) beef tallow
250 g (25%) sunflower seed oil
125 g (12,5%) coconut oil
50 (5%) castor oil

335 g goat buttermilk
137 g lye at 5% discount

Add the lye to the slushy-frozen (goat) butter milk. To keep the color of the soap as light as possible keep the lye container in an ice-bath as well. Prepare recipe as usual (I do DBHP). After cook add warmed honey at 2.5 % of the amount of oils. For the amounts given above this would be 25 g. Some shredded calendula petals make nice speckels in the soap.

The combination of the buttermilk and the honey made the soap a very warm golden yellow. I didn’t use any coloring or scent, the honey makes it quite sweet smelling though. Lather is really great and leaves my skin very soft.

This recipe makes 10 bars of 110 g / 4 oz each.
