Want to Make Your Own Goat Milk Soap?

Goat milk soap is SO luxurious! The extra fat in the milk (compared to using water) superfats the soap and makes it extra creamy.

Making your own soap from scratch does require using sodium hydroxide, also known as lye. Lye can be a dangerous ingredient, but as long as you follow the rules and are careful and diligent, using the proper safety equipment, you'll be fine.

Or you can use melt-and-pour soap, a base product that has already had lye added and is safe to use. Just help these soap cubes, add the colorants and scents you desire, and pour into molds - which is why it's called melt-and-pour, of course.
