I’m in love with my new soap.

Oh, yes, completely in love.

It started with an overabundance of milk, and my need to use it up before leaving for a week. I decided to bust out a quick batch of soap while waiting for some of the milk to heat to an appropriate temperature for yogurt.

I started with an organic glycerin soap base, and then I added a bunch of fresh goat’s milk – from Ginger, my goat. (Have I mentioned I have a goat? Yeah. She lives in rural Swan at Sugar Creek Family Farm. She is the queen of the barnyard, at least in her opinion. And she produces about 2 gallons per day. um….  it’s a lot of milk.)

After that, I threw in a dollop of raw honey from Cypress Grove Farms, also in Swan.

And I added a touch of honey fragrance for a bit of boost to the honey scent.

mmmmm.

There is a LOT of milk in this soap, making it really a lot like taking a milk bath. It’s very soothing and gentle, not drying at all. I fell in love with it while suffering from some sort of rash from an unidentified weed of some sort that itched like crazy. It was so nice feeling on my irritated skin. And the scent is pleasant but not overwhelming.

Yeah, I love it. Want to try it? Available at Etsy!
