Goat Milk 13 AUG 2014

7 10 2014

More goat milk soap. I went a bit wild on the molded soaps and didn’t leave quite enough left for the bars making them narrower than usual. It’s not much fun to pour out of the molds; makes a big mess and it doesn’t do to pout into the bar mold first. The soap gets thick quickly after trace and the shapes don’t show up well if I don’t pour them first. The bars are still a good bath size though. I usually make them quite large.

Beeswax and Goat Milk – MAY 2014

11 07 2014

So, I have a problem. I always print out the recipe when I make a batch. The date is automatically printed on the bottom of the page and that is what I use to remember it. In this case, the printer failed me. The very bottom of the page didn’t print and I didn’t catch it. As such, I don’t have the exact date. I’ve tested it and it’s nice and hard and the Ph is neutral. I remember that it was at the end of May though so I suppose I’ll just have to mark with only the month.

Anyway, this is using more local beeswax from my coworker, this time in the goat milk soap.2014-07-11 14.06.59 I really like the beeswax. It makes the soap silky smooth.
