Recipe For Goat Milk Soap
- Hand gloves
- Lab coat
- Shower cap
- Silicone soap mould
- 3 teaspoons of titanium dioxide
- 2 teaspoons of apricot oil
- 2 tablespoons of organic coconut oil
- 8-10 cocoa butter cubes
- 1 tablespoon of palm oil
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1.5 grams of sodium hydroxide lye (please be careful in using this)
- 400 ml of goat milk (raw)
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 4 tablespoons of oatmeal milk
- 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
- Ice tray
- 1 deep steel vessel
- Mixer grinder
- Hand blender
Put the goat milk in the ice tray and freeze it overnight.
Put the milk cubes in the steel vessel. In case you feel the goat milk cube is lesser in quantity than your other ingredients, add some distilled water to balance the same.
Add half of the total sodium hydroxide lye you have to the frozen goat milk cubes. Mix till the lye melts in the milk. Again, add the remaining sodium hydroxide lye and let it melt in the milk, by stirring.
You have to keep stirring till the goat milk ice cubes become fluid in nature and the complete sodium hydroxide lye is mixed. Stir it till it is yellowish in colour.
In the mixer grinder, put the titanium dioxide with the vegetable oil and blend.
In the glass bowl, mix the oatmeal milk and honey in the right ratio.
Mix coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil, cocoa butter and apricot oil into a smooth mixture. To this, add the honey and oatmeal mix and do continue stirring.
The most important step of the homemade goat milk soap recipe is, adding the melted goat milk lye mix to the oil-honey fluid you have prepared.
Blend all the ingredients, so that a thick soap base is obtained. Do not miss to add the titanium dioxide with the vegetable oil, which you had in the mixer grinder.
Ensure that the mixture is evenly spread with no bubbles in the soap mould. Refrigerate this for 5 days to get your solidified version of the homemade goat milk soap.
