Lavender Goats Milk Soap

Yes I know, it  has been a while and I’m sorry!  I have a bunch of updates coming in the next couple weeks though!  Since Valentines Day is here I figured I’d start with what I made for my wife.  I couldn’t post it till Valentines though since that would ruin the surprise! She like’s soap so I made a bunch of different soaps for her.

The first is goats milk soap.  I used:

Coconut Oil

Goats Milk Soap Base

Oatmeal

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender Dried Buds

Freshware Soap Molds

Here is a showing of the ingredients I used. Note the colouring

I melted the goats milk soap base and coconut oil in a double boiler. You can also melt the soap base in the microwave but I'm better than that.

This is the lavender essential oil I used. I dripped about 18 drops into the mixture.

After pouring into the molds, I added the colouring. I put a couple drops in and swirled it around with a toothpick. I then proceeded to add oatmeal and do the same.
