Let the Soaping Begin

 
With kidding season comes an abundance of goat's milk. And an abundance of goat's milk means soaping time. After many requests to purchase soap last Fall, and more soap classes than I had originally planned on teaching, I discovered too late that I had underestimated the amount of milk I should have frozen.
 
With only four remaining precious bags of milk in the freezer, I have been hording them until my first doe freshened, even though we are down to just a few "nice" bars of soap left on the shelf. Now that she has, I feel the liberty to dig them out and start creating.
 
Except, of course, now that I have milk, I am short on supplies, so will have to wait until the nice Fed-Ex man pulls into my driveway with a big box of spring colors and scents from Brambleberry: Cucumber Melon, Plumeria, Cranberry-Pomegranate, the ever favorite Almond, etc., etc. There are a couple different recipes and designs that I have been wanting to experiment with, too ~ I can't wait!.
 
So stay tuned, and let the soaping begin!

Go Terri Go ! Just minutes ago I received another delivery from Soapers Choice where I get all my oils. A 50 pound gallon of coconut oil plus some shea butter not to mention my regular huge box of Olive oil. Soaping is so wonderful and so addictive. Can't wait to see your next creations!

Yippee! The Fed-ex guy made it through the snow with a big delivery. Three batches of soap made tonight~ can't wait to see how they turned out. Lot's of pictures coming soon!

Your lists of scents sound wonderful. We made soap a few years back for homeschooling 'art'. In small doses, it's a lot of fun. I'm not sure it would be so fun in huge batches. Do you make your own moulds?

Yep, soaping is a lot of fun, Blondee. We are busy getting ready for spring sales and just finished making four more batches tonight. Rob makes custom soap molds that perfectly hold my recipe for 13 bars.
