The creation of a soap!
Here is the beginnings of our Oatmeal, Milk & Honey goat milk soap. The oils, lye water & milk has been blended and cooked for about an hour here.
I don’t stir until it gets to this point.
Now that it’s holding some shape when stirred and has a waxy look, it’s ready for further amendments.
Adding the good stuff!
Honey is added at this point. Honey makes soap more bubbly and is a humectant which attracts moisture.
Waiting to cool!
Here are two loaves of saponified goodness waiting for their day to shine as great and gentle soaps!
