You Can! Make Goat's Milk Soap!


Share on Facebook
Merry Christmas to you all!  This is my present to you, a video on how to make goat's milk soap.  I hope you enjoy it and get the confidence you need to start making your own soap!  If you do not have goat's milk, you can still make a natural soap bar by substituting the milk with distilled water.

Have fun!  Remember, this is free (amateur video of course), so if you have not joined this blog or liked me on facebook already, then would you please do so for me?  Just look to the left and you can subscribe by email, like my page, and/or join!



Would you rather buy goat's milk soap?  Check out my website at www.edengoatsmilksoapandlotion.com.  

My soaps are at a great price you won't get anywhere else at $3.50 per bar!  I also have goat's milk lotions available.  My You Can! Make Goat's Milk Lotion! is coming soon!

As always, I am so thankful you visited!

  2. Why do you use a regular blender instead of an immersion (stick) blender? Does it work differently?

  3. You can use a stick blender if you'd like, but for the quantity that I make, a blender is much easier and it mixes more evenly.

  4. Did I miss something? I could have, since I was watching this on my laptop at the same time as supervising my two boys taking a bath tonight! When you first put the mixture in the blender, and you had to blend in batches because of the quantity, where did you put the newly blended mixture? I saw you had two stock pots and noticed that you definitely put the traced soap into the second stock pot after blending the second time with the oatmeal and EO. But what was happening with the first blend?

    PS: Amazing video, by the way! I can't wait to try this myself...I've wanted to but have been apprehensive, and I feel much more confident after actually seeing the process!

  5. After you mix the first batch, it should all be put in the second pot. I didn't mention to put the saponified soap (after it has gone through the second time) goes in the pot you started out with. Probably should have mentioned that, huh? Glad you enjoyed it!

  10. Susie, I love how you make it look so easy...and it isn't hard (I did it once with a friend)! What I'm attempting to say is that you are very natural in front of the camera. You are so brave!! Thank you, Kaila, for helping your Mom so well!! Beautiful job, girls :)

  11. Thank you Susie! That was a great video. I have been "studying" on how to make soap for a while (because I've been too chicken to just DO it) and watching you gave me the courage I need! lol

  13. Terrific tutorial! I've made lye soap before, and I found it to be a lot of work, though I still enjoyed it. You make it look so EASY! ;0)

    I've gathered some helpful tips, thanks so much for taking the time to share! You should link it up at "Hearts 4 Home" at my place today!

    Much Love & Blessings,

  15. Hey, Susie, is it 2 pounds of coconut oil or 2.5? Just asking, the math didn't add up with the kg amount you gave when I put it into the lye calculator and I just wanted to double check before I started!

    ReplyDelete
  16. It is two and a half pounds, or 2 lbs 8 oz of coconut oil. Hope that helps!

  17. I tried making the soap and had some trouble. The batch saponified - but when I left it overnight in the brambleberry mold oils seeped out all over the place.
    Also, the lye mix never got above 45 degrees (I partially froze the milk) and I heated the lye/milk mix to 85 degrees with sink water.

  18. i had a question about clean up: When you make soap do you need to have all different utencils and equipment from the cookware equipment? or can i use my everyday cookware to make the soap?
