I made a batch of soap before Christmas I was so excited about, I could hardly wait the four weeks required to complete the cure, before using it. I used my standard olive oil and goat milk soap recipe but added Lavender and Rosemary essential oils . I always adapt the recipe by replacing the water with goat milk. ( I raise Alpine dairy goats). For soap makers, if you would like to substitute milk for water, ask me how to accomplish this without overheating the milk and darkening the finished product. If you are interested in trying this recipe you will find all the directions in the April blog archive. If you are new to making soap and would like to give it a try, look in the April archive for complete soap-making instructions.
This morning I used this soap for the first time and was so excited about the quality, I just had to share the experience with my readers. In my opinion, there is no better body and face soap than olive oil and goat milk soap, for any type of skin, but especially for sensitive skin. The addition of these specific essential oils raised the level of luxury to a whole new level. The experience was akin to enjoying the pampering offered at high-end spas! Lavender is calming and relaxing and the rosemary is invigorating. I left the shower feeling clean, a bit tingly, distinctly relaxed and energized. I can’t wait to repeat the experience tomorrow morning!
Castile soap gently cleans without drying skin. When you add goat milk you improve skin conditioning significantly. Olive oil and goat milk soap leaves you squeaky clean and your skin feeling fantastic. Choosing to use artisan made chemical free and natural soap not only leaves your skin thanking you, it assures the environment thanks you too!
