Soap Challenge #2: Milk Soap

So I just did a huge experiment with Goat’s milk soap about a month ago.  It’d never used goat’s milk in soap before and I wanted to try it.  So after a lot of reading and studying I had five different experiments to try. You can read about each of those posts here:

Since I have more goat’s milk soap than I know what to do with right now I didn’t need to make another batch.  So instead I decided to use coconut milk.  I’ve had it for a month now and have been meaning to use it I’ve just never gotten around to it.

(After mixing my lye water the first time, forgetting to discount my water to allow for my milk, I then) mixed 1 to 1 solution water/lye and then added it to my oils.  Once it had reached light trace I added my coconut milk.  I used one of my best selling soaps Oatmeal, Milk & Honey.  Figured this recipe might be fun to actually have milk in it!  I used ground oatmeal and some cinnamon in the batch as well.  Nothing fancy but a delicious smelling soap it is!

    OMH is my personal fav. I love that you added cinnamon! I think the plain bars are some of the most beautiful.
