Goat Milk Soap.
Prepare your oils by weighing them and melting them to a temperature of
100-125° and set aside. Remove your pre-frozen goats milk from the
freezer and let thaw for a few minutes to soften (we like to freeze ours
in a zip lock bag). As soon as the goats milk can be broken apart,
weigh out 24.4 ozs in small chunks and add to your plastic container.
Then weigh out the lye. A little at a time, start adding the lye to
the container of frozen slushy goats milk - stirring and adding a little
bit more until all the frozen milk is dissolved. The goat milk mixture will look
creamy, not orange or curdled.
Don't be concerned about the temperature of the lye mixture just get the oils
temperature to around 100°. Using a stick blender, start adding
the goats milk/lye to your oils, mix well and
continue through to trace. Add grapefruit seed extract as a
preservative the scent and clay at a light trace. Pour into
individual molds suitable for cold process soap, or use PVC lined with
freezer paper or use silicone muffin baking sheet.
After 18-24 hrs. put your mold into the freezer for easy release of your
soap bars. Remove from mold/s, cut and cure soap for 4 weeks.
